TedE (443) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2015

Hansen (7438) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2015
Light amber coloured and clear. Has a white head. Mild sweet aroma, some hoppy notes. Flavor starts sweet, then moderate bitter. Creamy texture.

StuffWine (137) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2014
Poured a clear full amber with ok white head that diminished to soapy suds. Aroma light of sweet malt and some mild passionfruit. Flavours are initial sweet malt moving to dry stale hops. Palate thin but easy to drink with fine/dense carbonation, and surprisingly longer dry finish than was expecting. Refreshing on a hot day, a good entre beer.

Aroma is light, simple. Enough carbonic acid gas, little, smoke, little woody. Good overall.

Cantabrian (927) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 7, 2014
It wouldn’t be a bad ale, with citrus and pine needles on the flavour, but the aroma and taste of cashew apples is sickening. It kills what could have been a reasonable beer.

Morboso (105) - ECUADOR - AUG 5, 2014
Didn’t get too much aroma, a little fruit, a little fruit in taste. My tastebuds aren’t working today. Nothing exciting or particularly desirable,bought on special, their hop thief leagues ahead.

WheatKing (1319) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
Bottle. Amber white head. Nose is caramel, berry, mineral water. Flavour is pretty muted biscuit/caramel and British ale berry-ness. Nice carb bite, thick palate considering its description hints at lagerness. Alright.but quite muted, kind of papery despite having a 2015 expiry date.

chrisbroadie (13) - Wakerley, AUSTRALIA - JUL 12, 2014
From stubby poured to glass Ar: minimal aroma, a little bit of tropical but not a lot / Ap: Gold, clear, small white head with decent retention / T: Not very sweet, not very bitter, pleasant but simple? / P: light body, thin to oily texture, slightly carbonated, short bitter finish / O: Not a bad beer, better than 150 lashes, but not a great beer either. meh, drinkable.
