nihtila (1016) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
18.11.2013. Sitrusta ja greippiä tuoksussa, ipaksi aika hentoa. Semiraikas, maussa sitrusta ja jotain yrttiä tai hedelmää, passionhedelmää? Ihan jees.

3fourths (8382) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Draft at Ma Che Siete Venuti a Fa in Rome. Lightly hazed gold with a foamy and lasting white head. Medium-light bodied, lightly sweet with medium to high relative bitterness and mild acids. Malt impression is baked biscuits with honey and faint butter. Hops are noble-like, floral and lemon-citric and somewhat like honeysuckle. Nicely filling mouthfeel and the malt is savory and the carbonation creamy. I’m prone to say there’s diacetyl at low levels but it doesn’t show the acidic signature in the mouth, but manifests as a butterscotch quality in aroma and flavor/retronasal, but I can also see it being old noble hops (Saaz would be my first guess).

RichardW (1633) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Sweet and jammy, dusty pale beer. Hints of toffee in the background. Doesn’t have the big hop hit, but it’s subtlety creeps up nicely. Mandarin and peach in the finish. Good stuff.

Garrold (2134) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Bottle. Hop Hideout, Sheffield. Hazy gold. Film of clingy, white head. Toffee malts. Some dried pineapple. Pineapple cube sweets. A bit buttery. Taste is sweet, turning long, light, citrus bitter. Decent body. Soft carbonation. Bit of chew. Finishes lengthy bitter. Ok, but not keen on the buttery thing.

imdownthepub (10974) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2014
Bottled, 330ml from Leamington Wines, Leamington Spa, Warks. Gold with slight head. Quite a sweetish, lightly flavoured, thinnish beer, some hints of mown grass, lightly floral, all a little bland unfortunately. A bit of a disappointment.

mabel (7015) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
[6526-20140710] Cask. Odd sweet grape aroma has a little fruity baked bean note. Slightly hazy, pale orange body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Butter grass grains flavour has a strange fruity background. Medium body. Odd but interesting. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2-
(@ Holyrood 9A, Edinburgh, Scotland)

Travlr (14385) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden color, white head. Aroma of pineapple, grapefruit. Taste has citrus, straw. Not bad.

gegwilson (1679) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle from the brewery. Pours deep golden with a thin white head. Nice fruity aroma and flavour. Some light spice along with juicy citrus flavour. Grapefruit in there too. Nice full mouthfeel. Good stuff.

ElDesmadre (1923) - Mikołów, POLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle. Rather subtle, green hoppy aroma - grass, gooseberry, citrus. Quite dry taste with the Nelson flavours diminishing in the mid-part, leaving us with an excessively dry, astringent, really unpleasant bitterness. This one is a fail.

Iznogud (1207) - CROATIA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml from Fyne Ales Brewery Bar & Shop. Golden with the white head. Citrus, grapefruit hoppy, bitter dry finish. Medium bodied.
