Holmen1 (2348) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2014
Flaske fra HelgøMeny i Hundvågkrossen, på Holmens aktivitetsdag mars-14: pent hvitt skum med kniplinger og nydelig ravfarge. Men her stopper også gleden. Synes denne har en lett og intetsigende smak, tynn og vandig munnfølelse kombinert med en kort ettersmak. Skuffende fra Goose Island.

pictoman (482) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2014
Poured from the tap. Clear light amber brown with off-white head. Malty aroma. Malty taste, cereal, with some mild nutty notes. Medium body. Full taste to start, but dissipates into mild finish.

tectactoe (1658) - Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle: Solid amber color with burnt orange highlights; super-hazy, nearly opaque & topped with a creamy, eggshell head on top that leaves some generous lacing behind. Aroma is super malty; soft caramel, toasted nuts, lightly boozy toffee, earthy & leafy hop aromas, candied barley, & very subtle brown sugar. Taste is a little watered down & very light. Mild nuttiness, much less sweet than the aroma would indicate. Light toffee & caramel over earth, dirt, grass, toast, & a timid nuttiness. Mild, woodsy musk flavor with caramel covered toast & toasted nuts in the aftertaste... Small hint of yeast & wet wood. Lots of stuff packed into this 4.3% ABV beer, but the synchronization could be a little better.

Pershing (476) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours a clear copper with thin white head the quickly dissolves. Light hop and malt aroma. Nice amount of hop bitterness with a smooth mouth feel. Refreshing light finish. An excellent session beer.

tmplerns (6) - Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2014 does not count
Quite unusual sweetish taste. Moorish, and distinctive sweet aroma I hadn’t smelled before.

Dacrza (502) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2014
DATE TASTED: February 13, 2014... GLASSWARE: Kisatsky’s Tavern pint...OCCASION: snow day half done--part two of the storm, beginning now ... APPEARANCE: classic amber body with steady effervescence; beautiful snow white head that creates wonderful, patterned lacing... AROMA: butterscotch, hazelnut, and light yet fragrant hops are counterbalanced by the expected English bitter malts...PALATE: active, medium bodied yet easy-drinking, as the label advertises...TASTE: bitter indeed--slightly abrasive bite tempered by unmistakable ESB maltiness--drinkable and enjoyable, but not overtly winning... OVERALL: a strong representation of the style, with the proper strength, mouthfeel and flavor to elicit a sessionable night; a second quality offering from Goose Island, after the 312 Wheat...
