fiulijn (15750) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
Draught at Söder om Småland, Malmö, 6% ABV
it has been quite difficult to pour; finally there is a cloudy golden liquid in the glass, with generous compact head. The aroma not only is malty and fruity, but also quite clearly buttery. The mouthfeel is smooth; the malt flavor has a grainy character (appreciated); strong bitterness and strong hopping, with hop oils and a grassy accent, not much fruity; luckily the diacetyl is not apparent.
Good one, and different from the American style.

oh6gdx (21546) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2009
Draught@HBF2009. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is a lot of fruity hops, some slight caramelly notes as well. Flavour is fruity hops, caramel malts, a bit alcohol. One of the best Czech IPA’s

SaintMatty (5710) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2009
Draught (Helsinki Beer Festival 2009) - Gold/amber in colout. Slightly hoppy and citric aroma. Fairly well balanced taste with hops, spicy malt and grapefruit. Surprisingly tasty and enjoyable.

thewolf (11313) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2011
Bottle @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Clear golden with just a slight yeasty haze. Fine, staying, creamy, white head. Aroma is flowery, some heather, light crisp malts and some apple and grassy notes. Medium carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit sugary sweet at first, but settles with a more complex sweetness, doughy and a touch of honey. Good, grassy, fairly sharp bitterness. Fairly long, lingering dryness. Quite nice.

Ungstrup (29987) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2011
Bottled. A golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of straw and malt. The flavor is seet with notes of malt, hops, citrus, and straw, leading to a very bitter finish.

Leighton (13022) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Keg at the Euston Tap. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a creamy, white cap. Aroma holds a lot of buttered bread, some vegetables, hints of ripe orange. Flavor is quite sweet, honey and cakey bread, grassy bitterness, subtle pine, dank hay. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Warmish finish, some dry toastiness in the throat, hints of yeast, light pine. Seems like this beer is still trying to find itself. Alright. (10 June 2011, Score: 3.4)

Draft at the Great British Beer Festival 2014, Day 1 - London. Pours clear yellow with a white foam head. Nice. Some cleansing minerals, citrus peel, moderate sweetness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Gritty mineral finish with pale malts and rindy citrus. Not bad. (Score: 3.4)

Dixonian (1562) - Plano, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2012
750ml bottle. My buddy had this one sitting for a couple years and forgot about it. Figured it was worth a shot. Dull golden body - nose is more like a saison. Funky, grainy, and fruity. Any hops have surly faded. Flavors of citrus, funk, and dirt.

kerenmk (2874) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 16, 2012
Plastic bottle sample at a tasting at avrashi’s place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Pours murky green-gold with white film. Smells skunky and grassy and tastes green, almost-dry, bitter taste. Medium body, long, green finish, delicate fizz. Nice.
