Finn (4402) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2014
Flaske 330ml spandert av og delt med Rune på Nerstranda 10 Des. 14. Gylden. Lavt skum. Svakt karamellaktig aroma. Smaken er søt frukt som blir syrlig etter hvert. I søtligste laget.

330ml bottle bought at Wine Rack in Leeds last summer. Tiny bubbly, white head to a bright amber coloured body. Caramel and citrus hops on the nose. Taste of leafy hops mingled with mid-sweet juicy malts. Sharp bittersweet endnotes. Medium bodied. Good enough (shared with Finn, Tromsø 1012.2014).

minutemat (1880) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
330ml bottle from Beer Ritz. Quite a big hit of zesty lemon bitterness here, fruity with a plump juiciness, a touch of spice and an oily mouthfeel. A joy to drink.

jamesie1857 (1482) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2013
330ml bottle - Light golden body, thin white head. Nose of malts and light hops. Clean fruity taste, but lacking any real character. Clean, but where was the "fire"?

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2013
Pale yellow in colour with a light frothy head. It has a warm aroma of bready fruit. Tastes of sour hops with a bready after taste.

dogbomb (969) - ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light gold with a nice thick white top. Malty initial nose, which opens way to blackcurrant fruitiness. In the mouth, it’s quite tart with a lemony bitter edge. Finish has bite and dryness but it fades away leaving a spicy bubbly nastiness up the nose. Bit disappointing.
