flying_pig (1125) - SCOTLAND - JUN 8, 2015
500ml bottle from Aldi supermarket, drank at home:
This one was a very easy to drink beer that went down a treat & came through with a good balance but at the same time nothing really stands out for me. I liked the beer, it was a smooth one with nice touches of sweetness & good bitterness throughout; good stuff from Inveralmond but not quite great.

Cunningham (5421) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2015
Golden color with a fine white head. Floral hoppy and fruity aroma. Decent body for an 4.1% ale. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Average carbonation. Fruity, toffee and a fresh citric hoppy flavor. Nice session ale.
[Bottle from Varnaveien in Moss, Norway]

chinchill (2893) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 3, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased and consumed in Fife, Scotland. BB date stamp of July 2016 (more than 1 year away). Appearance: true to style, this is very pale golden with plenty of visible carbonation and a white head. Exceptional sticky lacing. Extra hops add spicing to this ale that also has more malts than expected for style. Mild caramel and vanilla notes. Easy drinking with plenty of flavor. O: recommended. Not entirely true to style, this version is more flavorful, appealing and interesting than average.
