Deu (723) - Nantes, FRANCE - NOV 9, 2014
On tap at the black sheep in Dublin. Golden pale ale with almost no head. A little bit bitter at the end. Not too bad.

laraissa (8) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2014 does not count
Bottle Not much in Aroma but makes up for it with the hoppy flavours and the bittering finish which lingers, tropical fruits flavours - citrus and sweet malts coming through

zimbo (619) - SCOTLAND - OCT 17, 2014
Cask. A perfect example of how a seemingly light beer can be so full of flavour, depth and complexity. The structure between supple biscuit and light lingering pine resin is so firm and superbly balanced. Probbaly the best cask ’all rounder’ in Scotland today.

Vaiz (3595) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of fruity hops, slighty spicy, citrus and tangerine. Flavor is quite bitter, fruity and hoppy. Nice balance and a decent body for the low abv.

Tarosama (57) - Northumberland, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2014
At 3.8%, this is a good session beer. Easy to drink. Balanced malt and hop flavour. Nice clean finish. Similar to Magus of Durham Brewery.

fiammanghilla (675) - Genova, ITALY - OCT 7, 2014
Spina @ Eurhop 2014. Chiara schiuma bella. Leggera citrica beverina, poco carbonata.

ogivlado (6026) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 7, 2014
Bottled 500ml. -at China Buffet King Glasgow. Yellow coloured, small white head, mild citric nose. Light malty, citrusy and mild fruity with herbal hoppy notes in rather bitter finish. Distinct bitterness in the aftertaste. Really good brew for 3.8%.

Ragnampiza (545) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - OCT 5, 2014
Cask at Eurhop beer festival 2014. Light golden yellow, quite clear, with a small, bubbly and frothy off white head. Lovely citrusy and tropical hop notes, both fresh and pungent, perfectly clean. A hint of bready malts and lemon peel as well. Pretty big astringency upfront, relatively harsh feeling, feeling heavier than the actual ABV. Nice mild hoppy bitternessm just a hint of honey and pale malts in the aftertaste. Soft carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Nice, but the mouthfeel turned me off a bit. Ok overall.
