Beerheart65 (976) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2014
Clear deep amber / copper, thin fluffy off-white head, tiny sparkling. Quite malty with bit citrus hops, slight caramel and some tropical notes, bit bread and flowers. Bitterish taste, dry and english malty with nuts and bread, medium body, malty finish. Tasty and malty but in an english bitter style way.

PawelD (142) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Piwo butelkowe. Zapach gumy i płynu do naczyń, niby owocowe ale dalej woni takim tanim płynem. Kolor ciemny bursztyn, klar, zerowa piana. W smaku woda woda i jeszcze raz woda z nieprzyjemnym lepkim dodatkiem cytrunowego płynu do naczyń. Lipa do sześcianu.

pivnizub (8748) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle: Clear, derp golden, mid-sized stable off-white head; nearly moderate dryish herbal to medical nose, malt and fruits-as usual underneath; bitter and slightly sweet flavour, light bodied - absolutely not thin; slightly lingering soft medical bitter finish, balancing malt detectable as expected. Surely not exciting, but pretty decent…

lusikka (6043) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a small head. Aroma is a bit sweet and British with mild floral notes and some citrus. Flavour of sweet maltiness, floral bitterness, mild piney notes, some soapy citrus and unfortunately cardboard. Light bodied. Not good.

330 ml bottle. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Floral hops, mild bitterness, woody dryness and malt in the aroma. The flavour is paper, dryness, pencil, mild bitterness, hops and some malt. Quite ordinary English Pale Ale.

Geiserich (3305) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle: Sweetish malty aroma, unusual notes of sweets, light fruitiness. Flavor is also malty, sweetish, hoppy, grassy, pine, citrus peel bitterness. Unbalanced with some strange notes and more malty then hoppy.

mile (2887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Golden, small to average and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel - light toffee, light floral fruitiness, light grassy hoppyness. Body is light to medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel - light toffee with light floral fruitiness, light hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some caramel and light fruitiness with light grassy hoppyness. Caramel sweetish golden ale. Too sweet for me (also I could do without that floral fruitiness).

MichaelAwesome (3609) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 17, 2014
Classic one with some spices, bit of hops and some fruits. Easily to drink but definitely watery in the end. With more abv this one would be a bomb.
