Euggs (21) - Glasgow, - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle, from Hippo Beers in Glasgow. Light, refreshing, gently hoppy - this really is an extremely drinkable session ale. I’ll be stocking up on this for the summer - it’d be perfect with a barbecue on a sunny day!

zimbo (578) - 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 (3392) - 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 (49) - 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.

ogivlado (5791) - 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 (493) - 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.

ippopotamo36 (254) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 4, 2014
At Eurhop festival in Rome-Italy. Pours yellow, just a bit hazy with a tick and lasting white cap. Nose is mild hops, distinctive malty notes. Mouth is very drinkable: dry, floral, and slightly bitter palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MichaelAwesome (4314) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle shared with McTapps. Very fine one with a deep body even if the ABV is quite law. Citrus and hops in the dominance with some touches of grass and straw. A delicious light piwo with some special moments. Thumbs up !

McTapps (4314) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Bottle from Scotia Spirit in Cologne. The beer pous out in a clear golden colour with airy low head and medium to thin body. Wonderful aroma of fresh hops, citrus and spruce. Taste of fresh hops, spruce, grapefruit, thyme, coriander, herbs, pink pepper, flowers and straw. Wonderful hoppy, yet mild finish. Enjoyed it.
