Bottle from Sainsbury’s in Edinburgh. Aroma very interesting with mango and vanilla sweetness. Not bitter enough to balance out the sweetness.

CroccyLc (10) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Smells of light malt and citrus. Tastes predominantly of grapefruit, sweet and tropical then hoppy, followed by a nice sweet malt, slightly bitter finish that mellows out gradually and blankets the tongue nicely. Nicely carbonated in my opinion. I would take this one out of the fridge 10 minutes before you drink it.

Bottle @home tasting General Election 2015 (rating backlog) Pours golden with a white head. Nose is grass/hay, some citrus fruits, quite lemony. Taste is very much the same, its just bland it does nothing well, [edit] should have added very thin finish.

suurjuust (2791) - ESTONIA - NOV 4, 2015
Clear golden beer, medium to small fluffy retentive white head. Nose is citric and malty. Flavor is malts, grains, some sweetness and delightful spicy hops and citrus in the finish. Lingering citric bitterness. Crisp mouthfeel and very easy drinkability. Nice.

500ml bottle (Highlander, Tallinn)
Lovely fruity citrussy aroma. Pale orange, small head. Medium palate, fullish, but very refreshing. Just as citrussy in the taste, light grains back that up. Gentle tingle in the finish. Delicious. Brilliant use of two great hops. Drinkability massive, 500ml just went in an instant. More beers like this, please.

4.1% gold colour with a thin head, another one that tries hard but is far too hoppy.

50 cl bottle from Meny supermarket. Pours golden clear with a big soon fading head. Malty, nunny and earthy aroma. Dry finish. Good brew.

Pours golden with a light white head. Smells floral and slightly fruity. To taste quite fruity with a hint of grass and nuts. Pleasant enough. Nothing special.

Marduk (6141) - Reval, ESTONIA - JUL 26, 2015
500ml bottle. Pale golden color. Small size, white head, struggles to stay. Caramel malts, very sweet, milky and damp grass and honey in aroma. Reminds me bit of Lithuanian beers. Sour malts and grains, spicy hops, rosee pepper, herbal taste. Perle executes other hops and takes charge (and I don’t mind it). Nice spicy hops in aftertaste. Quite high carbonation which makes beer bit too aggressive, but I will survive. It’s not quite supremely golden, but nice enjoyment nethertheless. I want to try this on cask.
