Kauge (67) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 18, 2014
50 cl bottle from Nõmme Comarket in Tallinn (€ 3,21), July 2014. Pours a pale yellowish gold with a white frothy head that retains well. Nose is floral, lemon zest and grapefruit, sweet fruitiness and caramel. Bees would love it. Gets maltier as it warms, eventually lacking the freshness. Taste more bitter with citrusy aspects most notable, far from the sweetness detected in aroma. A bit of hay and malts too; more when warm. Light body, medium carbonation, long lingering bitter (grapefruit seed) finish, palate a bit watery. Overall a decent, but rather forgettable brew. Buy this when you need a quick thirst quencher and a 0,33 bottle is not enough. Drink it cool. Oh, and speaking of cool - it’s something the label lacks. Come to think of it. Not only the label.

Tap@BA Bellmangatan. Besk och blommig doft. Lite tråkig i smaken. Ganska intetsägande i smaken. Hade hoppats på lite mer humlebeska.

AdiBeer (890) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Aroma: floral hops, hay, cereals, bread. Appearance: clear gold, small white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: bitters intensify, very hoppy, flowers, some citrus fruits. Overall: decent APA, but struggles to stand out against the fierce competition. Bottle from Sainsbury’s, Pimlico.

damemphis (4) - FINLAND - JUL 15, 2014 does not count
First APA I’ve ever tasted. Not too shabby, nothing special yet enjoyable. Hardly any foam, nice, golden colour. Somehow milder than most IPAs yet still quite aggressive with the hops. Nice, hoppy aftertaste. Worth a try.

Grima (2074) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle from a trade with Cunningham, huge thanxxx!
Pours golden yellow with flat white head. Smell has lots of citrus and some nice tropical fruits. Starts very bitter hoppy, fruity, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Middle part has bitter hop flavor, caramelly notes and sweetish fruity notes. Goes into a bitter-citrussy hoppy finish!

oops (203) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours golden with white head. In aroma - hops, fruits, some sweet flowery notes as well. Nice bitterness and not as sweet as the aroma tells you.

ianwelby (432) - SCOTLAND - JUL 2, 2014
Golden ale with a quickly-diminishing foamy had which soon became a light film. Floral, citrus aroma. Flavour is quite sharp and bitter at first and it’s not as sweet as I expected from the smell, with a sharp grapefruit taste dominating. Slight spiciness to it and there’s a resinous quality to the backtaste. Surprisingly complex and quite tasty.
