Swaroga (1110) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2013
50cl bottle. Golden with almost no head. Nose : grains, some flowers. Toast bread. Sip : water like body with very low carbonation. Malty flavoured with notes of toast bread. Gets balanced with delicately bitter hops. The aftertaste is somewhat earthy, bitter and sour. Ok.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Cask in the King’s Head W2. Bright golden beer with white head, looked quite appetising. Fairly standard English golden ale, some dryness in the finish, not especially hoppy. Decent enough pint but dull.

on tap at the little dudley house. in my opinion, a bit better than TEA with a bit more flavour. hoppy but also slightly zesty.

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
August 17, 2012 - on handpull at The Charles Dickens - as Hogs Back Hop. Clear coppery gold with a small creamy off-white head. Smells like grassy corn syrup with a bit of alcohol - taste follows, slightly harsh. Slick and syrupy and thin on the tongue, very little carbonation, with a harsh sweet finish. Not nice.
