djoeye (2886) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 29, 2014
Supersmall head, golden to straw golden body. Scents of fruity hops, pale malts, hints of fruitjuice, as lemon-juice. Fruity malty taste with some lemon drops, some spruce or resin tendency, the hops. Fresh and alright bodied. Malty grainy but fresh aftertaste with decent bitterness. Brilliant together with spicy food, actually often better than such food. (500ml brown bottle, abv3.5%, b@ Kjeller 5 , Tromsø , Norway - so fortunately I didn’t have to go to Leeds)

olsvammel (4942) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at a pub in London. Light smell, fruity and floral. Fruity and hoppy smell with floral notes. Allot of flavour for a 3,5% beer.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 1, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of biscuit, some honey and floral hops. Flavour of strong crisp floral hops, citrus, grass and biscuit. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a crisp, floral, bitter finish. Really nice, crisp and refreshing.

Idiosynkrasie (5555) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 31, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear orangey golden colour with small to average, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Pale malty aroma has a biscuit touch, citrusy hoppy overtones, cautious hints of orange, lemon. Taste is pale malty, minimally strawy, dry hoppy. Sadly the aromatic flavours don’t find a full echo in taste - no biscuit, no orange.
