RichardW (1502) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2014
Bottled from Coppers Newcastle. Strong zesty lemon aroma, pouring a faintly hazy gold colour. Light bodied, very grassy and piney, its an unusual combination, but, as with Great Beck’s beers, its a good ’in!

Bottle from Appellation Wines. Hazy golden body with tiny yeast flecks floating around. Medium white head. Nice lacing. Aroma of orange, lime and musty yeast. Flavour of Rich Tea biscuits, wheat, citrusy hops and mandarin. Thin body with a watery texture. Light fizz. Very hoppy for a wheat beer.

miquelcrush (1362) - Granollers, SPAIN - JUL 20, 2014
Per tractar-se d’una cervesa de blat no és molt ŕcida i té un molt bon toc aromŕtic. Por tratarse de una cerveza de trigo no es muy ácida y tiene un muy buen toque aromática.

FatPhil (9301) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 19, 2014
330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Nice fruity hop aroma, citrus, fleshy fruits. Orange, small head. Very well attenuated, but also has the sweetness of the fleshy fruits. Finish has some buts, bitterness, and grapefruit flesh. Lovely crisp hoppy ale.

Marduk (2658) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 11, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear golden color. Medium size, yellow head, stays. Sweet, hops, caramel and citrus in aroma. Citrus, lime, malty, grainy taste. Nutty aftertaste. Soft carbonation.

StuartC (28) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Hazy orange colour with short white head. Aromas of hop resin (or hash) and chlorine residue. On the palate, soft citrus flavours develop to banana bread, but then are overwhelmed by more of the same hop resins. If I were a stoner, this beer would be awesome; but I’m not!
