BenH (3068) - 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

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2012
In bottle, thanks Matt. Pours a lovely golden colour with a thick and rocky beige head. Great kiwi hop aroma of passion fruit and pineapple with similar resinous flavours. Well balanced alcohol with moderate carbonation. Just a little CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Very nice with lingering pine and passion fruit flavours.

Cask @ 5th ACBF 2012. A clear golden colored beer, with a white head, big bubbels. The aroma of fruits like citrus, flowery with notes of hop. The taste is dry bitter, sweet notes, fruits like citrus. The aftertaste is also sweet with hop bitter.

Garrold (2688) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle. Booths, Ilkley. Murky, dark gold. Film of white head. Not a looker. Doesnít drink that great, either. Itís like a beer thatís been stored too warm. Iíd have to say that one or two of the beers I last got from Booths, have been like this. I donít think this is how it left the brewery...

minutemat (2563) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
330ml bottle from Beermoth. Aroma is pine pot pourri crossed with a fresh flowery summer meadow.. lots of citrus & pine with a resinous aftertaste.. not too full on mind, but a very fresh juicy beer nonetheless.

stravale (2517) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - JUL 26, 2012
Bottle from Beer Hive, Edinburgh
Golden, clear, frothy white head that dissipates, bit of lacing
Aroma - Pale malts, some hay, some soft grassy hops, bit of must
Taste - Better than the aroma - grassy hops, some resinous hops, sweet palate malts, bit of damp hay, some zest. In the middle, more bitterness but tempered by the sweetish hay malts. Unusual hops here, bit earthy as well. Quite complex. Not that fruity, more zest, grassy and wet hay.
Palate - soft carb, medium body. Finish - more bitter here, now bitter grapefruit coming through and more zest, less grass. Quite a complex linger of hops left in the lingering
Overall - Hard to describe this one as itís rather unusual. I liked it though, the bitterness seems to want to be overpowering but is always held back by the malts. Itís a very good beer
