MichaelAwesome (3920) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Eastbourne shared with McTapps. Deep hoppy nose without being overloaded by citrus fruits. Some malt in the back. Smooth look, low carbo and foam. Develops a metalic background and a slightly sour aftertaste. Honestly said: Very average one.

McTapps (3923) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 7, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a amber-ruby colour with low head and flat body. Aroma of malt and hops with some sour mash hints. Taste of mild hops, barley, mild vinegar, nuts, bread and light whiskey. Easy drinkable yet nothing special.

FatPhil (9287) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 21, 2014
500ml clear glass bottle - thanks marduk!
Almost decent sweet malty aroma, so greene king. Sweetish malty body, almost woody. Flatish palate, despite explosive introit. Finish sweetish, malty. Almost decent, nice aged feel.

suurjuust (1031) - ESTONIA - JUL 16, 2014
Orange beer, small soapy white head. Nose is grassy hops, caramel, malt. Flavor is sweet and malt, caramel notes, dry finish with weak hops. Pretty forgettable stuff.

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought in Wakefield, UK. Pretty standard IPA but no strong hoppy flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

martjoobolut (655) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 12, 2014
0,5L bottle. Pours clear amber with off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, malt and British hops. Taste is very sweet and some bitterness, caramel and malt. Finish is malty and dry bitter. Overall: drinkable, but that’s it.

johndoughty (3960) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Bottle ( clear ) Another alleged IPA from this brewery with no presence of hops. Why do they bother? This is a run of the mill bitter to be missed at all costs.
