maneliquor (3104) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Sample bottle. Didn’t really come across as an APA. Probably not overly fresh as it was quite malty and had a sweetness to it which reminds of English pales. Although it had quite an astringent bitterness to finish. Average

ALLOVATE (2408) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 10, 2014
At just on cool and into a pint glass it goes. Cloudy, sandy yellow with a sloppy dollop of cream atop. Head just holds but it weaves a lengthy lace. Mix-bag aroma of hay-bales, citrus peel, tree sap and pine, a little sweaty sock, fresh baked bread and pear drops. Pasty mouthfeel with a fresh, bitter and tight, under-ripe citrus backbone. Grainy, gritty, haybale front with a little more of that fresh baked bread of the nose coming through. Hops and esters play well in the back reminiscent of dragonfruit, lychee and pear with licks of rose water, grapefruit, pine and dusty herbs. Edging sour and tangy before a pleasant bitter drop off. This is actually a great quaffer. I couldn’t put it down. Though rough around the edges it is deadly sessionable. Good stuff!!! (50cL, BBE 09/16, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

hawthorne00 (2432) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2014
Bottle, 5.9%, 10C. Hazy gold with a thick white head. Aroma of hay, lemons, peaches, some gooseberry, a bit herbal and earthy. Soft creamy texture, fairly light bodied, lowish carbonation. Sweet honeyed hay, lemon and grapefruit, firm bitter and dry finish with some herbs. Refreshing and a nice mix of old and new.

wimpyjoe (3893) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2014
Cask @ Trades Club, Hebden Bridge. Slighty hazy golden-blonde ale with a creamy head. It includes some hops and mainly a light non-tropical fruitiness with a bitterness.

vipinvelp (2187) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2014
Clear golden yellow with white lacing, lasting foam head. Aroma is truly barley. So is taste, but with a nice bitter touch. So aftertaste, mixture between barley and bitterness, some sweet tones. (Barnsley 201404)

oh6gdx (20322) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2011
Cask@GBBF2010. Slightly hazy orangeish golden colour with a mediumsized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity, berryish, a bit honeyish as well as slightly earthy. Flavour is being mild honey, slightly fruity and floral hops as well as mild wood and herbs.

Ungstrup (29287) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2010. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops and fruit. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and lemons, leading to a dry lemony finish. The aftertaste is a bit light.

leaparsons (8070) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2010
Bottle. Hazy straw with an off-white head. Aromas are clean, earthy, woody hops with underlying light tropical fruit mix. Some floral and spicy notes. Flavours are jammy lemon fruitiness with melon and some caramel and biscuit. Very earthy and dry hops with some tea and woody notes. Bitter grapefruit with floral spruce on the finish. Clean and refreshing.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2010
Cask handpull, The Pub, Leicester. Pale and dusted with a persistent white foam. Easily one of best brews of the day; shaved lemon, hint of sulphur, stewed tea, hint of green. Some clean, ringing Chardonnay notes. Clean, hopped-up, malty. Really floats my boat.

madmitch76 (15073) - , Essex, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2010
4th August 2010. GBBF.
Hazy gold beer with a suddy white head. Light dry palate. Fresh light marmaladey hops. A whisper of sulphur. Finishes a little too dry. Okay.
