tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 9, 2013
500ml bottle. Tasted this in December 2012. Pours crystal clear golden amber with a thick white head. Cereal wheaty note in the brief aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt base gives a digestive biscuit base with a sweet note of golden syrup noted. Strong hop resins impart a dry bitter tang in the aftertaste. Finish is dry and hoppy. An ok golden ale.

Grzesiek79 (4001) - Radom, POLAND - FEB 6, 2013
Bitter o gożkawym finiszu, ale niestety przy głębokich łykach nie wyczuwa się nadto zbyt wiele goryczy. Piwo nawet ładnie się prezentuje, bo ciecz jest zamklona i leciutko mętna, ładna piana średniej wielkości, ale za to trwała. Finisz goryczkowo-cytrusowy.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2013 500ml bottle at home. Pours clear golden yellow, thin white head. Hih carbonation. Malty aromas, but not much going on. Tastes a bit watery. Overall: A boring tasteless bitter, too fizzy.

MichaelAwesome (6458) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 8, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Surprisingly this one was way better than its cask partner. Still dry and choppy in taste and aroma but not that bitter which I like.

McTapps (6482) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle shared with MichaelBruch. After haven drunken this beer in England from cask a lot, I found it in a local bottle shop as a bottle. Clear golden-amber in colour with steady head. Very low carbonation, smooth body. Nose of hops and coriander. Taste of hops, spices, orange peel and herbs. Very dry with a medium bitter finish.

Bottle, pours light copper with little head. Very faint hoppy aroma. Full malty fruit taste with bitter citrus aftertaste that is fairly well rounded. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
