500ml bottle served cool. Golden body, nice dense white head. Starts promisingly with a floral, grassy flavour, but doesn’t develop, and becomes quite ordinary. Hops and digestive biscuit in the finish. Not entirely unrewarding, but more of a nod in passing than an aquaintanceship you’d want to develop.

BeerViking (2575) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2012
50cl bottle. Dark gold with a lasting thin white head. Hoppy, faintly peppery nose, crisp and a little herby on the palate. Some dry grass and a little lemon in the mouth, a nice light bitter.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours a light gold, reasonable head that quickly fades, with a decent lacing. Aroma is a bit nasty, a little sweet, a little hoppy, quite skunky and a bit pissy. Taste is seriously unpleasant: soapy, bitter, metallic tang, piss, some hops and a caramel note too. Neglected vegetation as well. Fairly full bodied with decent carbonation, long finish. The mouthfeel/palate is the best part of the beer. Underwhelmed - not up my street at all. If this wasn’t part of a present from a friend, it’d be my first drain pour.

ralphdot (988) - Billingham, Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
4.2% (was 4.6%) amber colour with a nice head, hop and malt aroma, caramel and a faint hop taste, good beer.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2012
Clear golden / orange color with a fine white head. Very aromatic beer whose aroma is spread throughout the room by opening it. Missing fullness. a little watery. Tastes and looks like an Easter beer and have a little eggy aftertaste.

dogbomb (948) - ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Clear light yellow-amber body with a nice small lasting white head which laces well. very light on the nose. Straw with resiny citrus tones. There’s a lemon here which cuts right onto the tongue giving it a mostly pleasant lemon zing on the tongue. This also create a metallic tang, which isn’t wholly unpleasant but possibly not wanted by most drinkers. Light thin body with lively carbonation - making this quite lagerish and very drinkable, especially on a warm day. Not bad. Not great. Average.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2011
Bottled. A pale gold headless beer. A sweet honeyed aroma which has cloying characteristics. Also tastes over sweet and honeyed. A hint of late citrus hops but otherwise a bit sickly.
