Hantti (24) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2014
Thin and watery feeling. Taste reminds me of a mix of market lager and IPA, but is very lame. One of the worst IPA beers I have tasted.

Not great. Taste very artificial. Not a fan, but I’d drink it if I really had to......

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2014
Pours a clear amber colour with little carbonation. Dominant malty aroma, can’t detect much else. Bready, yeasty flavour, little else. Goes down smooth, thin bodied.

Can from Jungle Jims from backlog notes 07. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy pale malts, some sweet fruit, mild bitterness, some metallic notes, bland and not very good.

Mad_Ferret (780) - SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2014
Bottle @ friends place in Brighton, summer 2011.
App: Clear chestnut with a short porous dissipating head.
Aroma: Toffee/butterscotch and some faint notes of dried apricots, oranges and grassy herbal hops. Some "sink water" also.
Taste: Butterscotch and some orangepeel and apricots. Dry malty with some bitter herbs in the finish.
Palate: Medium to light body, soft carbonation.
Overall: Move along.

dogbomb (1081) - ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2014
Bottle. Rich rusty brown. Thin cream head. Smells coppery and woody with some wheats. Smooth in the mouth, but the taste is a bit "blegh". Copper in the mouth, - dirty pennies soaked in wheatabix water. Needs more bitter hoppiness to really appeal to me as an IPA. And as a bitter, its just a little too unpleasant.

Cybion (99) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2014
Can, 500 ml. Drunk from said can. I remember this pouring a generic amber colour with a fair amount of creamy white head. Aroma of honey, with perhaps a small amount of resinous hop presence in there, but very minimal for something calling itself an IPA. Tastes quite weak and watery, again the main presence being honey, with a little bit of hoppy bitterness on the back end. Very watery mouth feel with minimal carbonation. Quite bland overall but probably one of the better budget beers available, and for a while in my early years of drinking this was my go-to alternative to lager (still is on occasion, usually when there’s nothing better on tap).
