stravale (2315) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle from Tomlinson’s Beer Shop, Inverness [130213]
Golden amber, slight haze, frothy white head, some lacing
Aroma of citrus hops, soft pale malts, soft lemon
Taste of citrus hops, bit of orange zest, some bittering hops, soft cereals, nice zesty hop, soft pale malts, nicely balanced, good flavour for the abv
Palate - soft carb, bit oily texture, quite smooth. Finish as main flavour with some lingering zesty cereal bitterness
Overall - Good flavour for the abv, good for a lowish abv bottled beer - must try this on cask. 330 ml was not enough...

AshtonMcCobb (3107) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 18, 2015
On cask @ Cloisters. Appearance - pale golden with a decent head. Nose - light citrus and green notes. Like plant stocks but maybe getting into lime. Taste - more of the green plant thing, light lemon and dry green leaf finish. Palate - light bodied with a lean dry middle section, albeit with a bit of creaminess and a long dry finish. Overall - a bit on the dry side to drink more than one.

JohnRMurdoch (3455) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 2, 2015
330ml bottle from Ales By Mail. Pale orange amber, good head. Grain resin hop & malt. Bitter citrus hop flavour. Sharp with hoppy bitter lime and grapefruit flavour. Not sure why this one is a bitter. More a golden ale / pale ale hybrid or session IPA.

mR_fr0g (4158) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2014
Bottle shared at Kernel Brewery at Zwanze Dat 20/09/2014. Picked up at Chesham Brewery shop. Clear golden / yellow coloured pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is mineral, nutty malt, light hedgerow berry, some grassy. Favour is composed of mineral, citrus, nutty malts. Palate is dryish, highish carbonation. Lingering nice citrus. More like an APA in my opinion.

Inglesa moderna. Seca y amarga, no muy incitadora pero interesante por su perfil balsámico y de piel de mandarina con especias

bartlebier (2068) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle pour@5e Mondial/Mulhouse - So. Basically elegant like a cup of Lady Grey and a biscuit wafer: watery citrus perfume, some leafy spice, then very soon followed by the bottom of the glass and presumably the next pour. Hard to be any sessioning ale under 5% at a festival, let alone a mild-mannered bitter.
