Onslow (1242) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pour from an 11.2oz bottle. Clear golden brew with thin white head. Aroma of slight grass, sweet malts, a little metal. Taste is nice but not complex -light sweet malts at the start (best characteristic of this brew) with a modest grass in the finish to offset and balance, Nice carbonation makes for a pleasing palate. A quality brew that is enjoyable to drink.

Gurthnar (2619) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 29, 2014
Tap at Craft Bier Fest Wien. Aroma pasteurised, taste the same, nothing more to say here, almost characterless beer impaired by attempted stabilization. Bad bad. As I see, my rating contrasts with others, so possible rerate in future.

RedSox2004 (1396) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pale gold with a pillowy two-finger head great retention and ok lace. Aromas of grainy malt and bread. Taste is the same, with grainy malt sweetness accompanied by gentle spiciness and a hint of yeast. Light body, lively carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a crsip finish. Not too bad.

maxwelldeux (4086) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden color with a fairly thick pillowy white head on there. Nose has a lot of corn to it with just a hint of citrus up front for me. Taste is light and quite crisp, with a nice balance of flavors blending for an easy drink. Pretty damn good, actually.

HippyHop (378) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
Pour is ginger ale gold with a weirdly appropriate soda pop cap that comes rocketing out of nowhere and disappears just as quickly. Nose is wheat and...wheat. Taste is slightly sweet, boring malt with a slightly crisp finish. Tasty, but quite shallow and pedantic really, mmm, yes, quite...

Brandon1989 (402) - Euless, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pours a clear yellow with a medium white head that left some lacing down the glass. The aroma is mostly malt and very faint hops. The taste is very similar.

SmashedSailor (5) - Florida, USA - DEC 14, 2014 does not count
A bit skunky with something to be desired, clear and crisp with a nice after-taste, however nothing to brag about
