weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2014
Cask. Settled to a clear golden colour with a medium off white head. Standard hoppy English golden ale but a good enough example. Tropical fruit, grapefruit, floral notes, fair bit of hops. Pretty bitter and clean long hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 11, 2013
Cask. Orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized foamy white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready and caramel malts along with some fruity, floral and herbal notes. Flavour is rather sweet nectary with some tropical fruits, mild grass and a bit floral notes along with some sweet malts as well.Wellbalanced, and surprisingly bodied for being only 3.8 %.
