beervis (243) - Taylor’s Country, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2013
Absolutely flavour packed for a blonde of this abv - a perfect daytime beer. Crisp, full of marmalade and pine hop flavours, and light enough to sup all afternoon without wanting forty winks. Good stuff.

Svesse (6174) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2013
(Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London, 26 Apr 2013) Golden yellow colour with foamy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus, grass, a touch of resin and biscuits. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, grass, grapefruit, hints of resin and a certain citric bitterness in the finish. Rather light body, quite dry. Tasty and highly drinkable. Nice one.

gwoodin (43) - Birmingham, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2013
500ml bottle. Little aroma, little flavour. Gold colour. There is bitterness. I found this one very difficult to review.

mt_hall (119) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2013
Bottled. Straw coloured with a thin white head. Hops and lemon on the nose. A dry start with hops and pine, then a sweeter citrus middle, followed by a dry, clean finish. A decent summer or session ale.

Martinus (2892) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2013
Pale light golden colour, diminishing white head. Floral hoppy aroma, citrus, malts, biscuit, light grass, summer field. Malty sweet, quite bitter flavour. Medium body, quite nice for the ABV. Malty finish, citrus, floral hops, some lingering bitterness.
Nice!
