jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Slightly hazy deep copper and bronze coloured body with a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of alcohol, cereal, earth and a light note of citrus hops. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent and floral hop character with an overly present malt flavour along with some stale and cardboardie elements. Aftertaste shows some corn and off/foul flavours of the malt along with some noticeable hop bites. Overall, a good sounding ’style’ to attempt to brew, but in practice - at least this attempt - this doesn’t work out so well, and you are left with a very inferior beer. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop (12th Street Location - since Closed) in Arlington, Virginia on 19-December-2014 for US$2,39 sampled at home in Washington on 30-May-2015 just a few blocks away from the store.

Theydon_Bois (12726) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle shared at RBWG ’15 Grand Tasting @ Coppertail, thanks to whomever shared this one, 21/02/15. Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering. Nose is tangy citric peel, bitter orange, hint of plastic, light spice. Taste comprises tangy lemon, orange peel, straw, light spice, yeast notes, pale malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so - not much to it.

Strykzone (5532) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2015
12 ounce can from nimbleprop. Very hazy orange gold and a ton of lacing left on the glass. Belgian yeast, malts, and sugar in the aroma. Big fruit in the flavor is tropical. Malts are rich and powdery. Some spice in here is akin to rye. It begins to get peppery mid glass. The finish is malty and yeasty. A decent beer.

slowrunner77 (7091) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAR 24, 2015
can. dark (for a "pale" murky almost amber pour. 3 1/2 months old. Still quite bitter at first, and dry. Opens up to be quite yeasty on the nose and palate, fruit and spicy yeast playing with earthy spicy hops. I dig the balance. I think I’d like this a LOT brewery fresh.
