Beersiveknown (3238) - NORTHERN IRELAND - JUN 14, 2012
Bottle from bitter virtue@ home Managed to identify green bullet, riawka and motueka by nose alone before reading the label, feeling proud! Pale blonde with lots of grape and citrus in the flavour, gentle carbonation and very easy drinking for its strength. Fantastic

DanielBrown (3913) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Pours pale yellow, with not much of the head variety. Smells like the bread counter in a Polski Sklep. Taste is initially ’not massive’, with only a frozen pond topping of lemon; but through the finish it grows and grows into a very dry hoppy beast. As I said, very dry. The hops are supremely refreshing and it has a good lightness on the tongue. Cuts through thirst.

DruncanVeasey (7315) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Live rate. Brilliant gold with a soft, thinning white collar. Aroma of lime zest, mango, liquorice and...lager top. Like I’d know. Good stewed tea, liquorice and tropical notes rounded with biscuit and bitterness. Nice, but somehow disappointing.

MalcolmTucker (750) - SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2012
Bottle. Gold with a white head. Aroma is strong hoppy fruit and quite sweet. The flavour doesn’t have the same impact as the aroma. This bottle as a bit flat. OK.

Ungstrup (29846) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
Cask at ACBF 2012. A dark golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of hops, lemons, and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and spicy hops, leading to a dry finish where a hay note lingers.

Tomethy (33) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle. Brilliant brilliant brilliant aroma. Sweet lemon and cantaloupe on the nose. Huge flavours, yet completely balanced. Clean. I love this.

tommann (2855) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours deep gold with a medium head. Aroma is mango and peach hops. Taste is very bitter, piney hop on the finish. Mango on the aftertaste.

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Clear, pale goldd with a bubbly white head. Quite an enthralling nose. Interesting hops featuring penny bubble gum and custard. The body is a little watery with little to no malt flavour. The hops are powerful and I was left with a fairly strong bitter finish. Quite nice. The hops were unusual enough to make it interesting.

BenH (2495) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Pale golden with white head. Thick aroma, pineapple, gooseberry, mango, grapefruit, bubblegum, banana, slight clash of notes. Taste has quite resinous hops, gooseberry. Slightly oily with a clean slightly bitter finish. Some very nice elements but a bit odd for me

The_Bish (1125) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Got a bitterness that’s not overpowering. Bready notes, very little head that sticks. It’s a good brew, but a little disappointing.
