badwhale (419) - Bitterville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle to sampler cup. Poured a darker yellow with medium head. This supposedly had more IBUs than the "mild winter" but I couldn’t tell. Seemed more mellow to me. It was alright, but another "meh"

Franckg (1025) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2016
Robe ambrée claire surmonté d’un léger col de mousse blanc et rocailleux. Arômes d’agrumes frais, pamplemousse jaune, notes de gazon séché, léger malt caramélisé. En bouche, goût d’agrumes un peu amers, malt caramelisé, gazon, zeste de pamplemousse. Texture légère et corps mince. Bonne bière de soif.

Cerveza color ámbar rojizo corona de espuma pequeña de burbujas compactas. Aroma a maltas secas y ligeramente frutal. Al paladar se percibe un amargor sutil con notas a maltas, al retrogusto predomina las notas a maltas secas. Cerveza agradable para una tarde calurosa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at the Irish Embassy. Almost no aroma, probably because it’s so cold. Golden brown with thin white head. Typical bitter flavours of biscuit, bit of lemon and caramel. Not too bad, but rather boring.
