vyvvy (4583) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Pours lightly hazy yellow / orange with a white head. The aroma is very dry and has lime, household cleaner and pale malt. It has a light rough body with a light amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with super dry malt, lemon / lime hoppiness, spice, minerals and some pine. The finish is papery and woody. Pretty decent for a low alcohol beer, but I’m sure this would be much better getting it fresh and not shipped from overseas.

brokensail (12519) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Bottle @ The Festival 2014. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a tall white head. Aroma is kind of a mix of herbs and lemon peel. Slightly grainy and bready. Some orange peel and pine as well. Flavor is fairly dry and zesty. Fair amount of bitterness in the form of grass and citrus rind. Nice herbal quality to it as well. Pretty nice.

Jatxo (5) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2014 does not count
Más APA que IPA, con un gran aroma y sabor, que con los 2,5 grados que tiene, hace muy apetecible repetir varias veces sin problemas para la salud.

Espuma blanca muy compacta y persistente. Aroma floral. En boca es bastante plana, pocos matices y poco cuerpo. Carbonatación correcta. El final es moderadamente amargo. Muy suave. Refrescante.

phaleslu (7386) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Draft at Dutch’s, served in a pint glass. Pours a hazy pale yellow-gold with a small white head. Notes of straw, lemon citrus, florals, grass, herbs, bread, and grains. A little damp sweat in the nose, but not in the flavor. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a dry, musty mouthfeel. Really nice and pleasant. All-day drinker.

On tap at Dutch’s. Keg is labeled "Lot 163". First pour from the keg. Hazy golden yellow color. Plenty of white head. Interesting citrusy lemony nose. Pretty nice, floral citrusy lemony flavor to it, surprisingly nice. Just a little musty hop aromas to it, kind of crockery and stale malt. Light body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lightly soft lighter carbonation. Light slick finish. Pretty refreshing stuff. Light to moderate bitter, light sweet, mildly zesty. Pretty tasty and fun.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 11, 2014
In short: A yeasty and very hoppy (grassy, herbal, lemony) small blonde ale. A tasty and highly drinkable little beer.
How: A few 330ml bottles here and there while I was in Spain, always consumed fresh, usually the same day I purchased the bottles.
The look: Cloudy dark blonde body topped by a medium white head.
In long: Nose is citric hops with a grassy spicy twist. Not the most aromatic aroma but for a below 3% brew it is obviously quite hoppy. Body is far from watery, a lively carbonation, a very fluffy texture. Taste has discreet malts with a body that feels more yeasty than malty. Hops flavor are more herbal-grassy than in the aroma with still a nice spicy twist and lemon zests. Because it is so yeasty it is not as refreshing as some of my favorite hoppy low-alchol thirst quencher but it was still a go-to beer during hot days for the one month I had access to fresh bottles. While in Spain I had a few of those light 2.8% Guineu Riner ales and I spent the rest of the day looking at my stomach waiting for my abs to appear.
