AgentAle (683) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2014

StuartC (28) - Lochgilphead, Argyll, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from Fyne Wines, Argyll. Clear amber-orange colour with only a very slight head. Distinctive biscuity, sweet cinnamon malt aromas (almost same sweet smell as produced by Edinburgh’s North British Distillery!). Pretty softly flavoured, until aerated... then BANG more maltiness and caramel sweetness; still absent of any hop character. Not particularly complex, but what flavour there is is very tasty.

FatPhil (9346) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 17, 2014
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Nice english ESB maltiness, but a bit sweet and underattenuated, almost mashy. Nice ruddiness to the colour, agin looks like a slightly thin ESB. Taste sweeter and mashier than the aroma, some milkiness too. Feels dead. Carbonation crisp, but that’s no substitute for actually being alive in the mouth. Sweetness/stickiness not cancelled by it. Real real ale version of this might be nice, but this is a little disappointing. In particular as I know these guys can do some very good stuff. Finish is nice, the malts come together more coherently, cleaner, grainier, less mashy, makes you feel you did just have an ESB.

a_cross (600) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Chosen out of my beer box by my daughter because it had an owl on the cap; deep bronze, moderate bubbly white head; aroma is complex malts; taste is sweet, toffee, very malty; hops are present but don’t dominate; well balanced and very drinkable; good stuff, tastes like no other pale ale and is more like a malty English strong ale. Liked it a lot.

CacheManyHose (179) - HONG KONG - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Smells grassy, musty. Tastes of musty hop, a bit of malt/corn. Body is thin, tiny bit of spice. More flavour than your regular mass market pale ale but still on the boring side.

HKdIPA (235) - HONG KONG - JUN 28, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2014 Bottle from Sunday's Grocery at Jay's. Very malty aroma with a tiny bit of bitter hops. Taste is crisp bitter hops with a malty bready backbone. Very bubbly. Not bad but wouldn't get again.

mzaar (1606) - Varberg, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2014
Flaska @ Nami, Varberg. Klar bärnstensfärgad med vitt skum. Dofter av gräs, frukt och tallbarr. Smakar till en början riktigt bra, med citrus-frukter, karamell, kåda och malt. Men ju varmare ölen blir, desto mer tar malten över och till slut blir det sött och inte vidare gott. Ölen gick i smakbetyg från 7 till 3, och får därför en 5 till slut. Och då är jag rätt snäll.
