Hazy but oh well, we love it down Calderdale way. Sediment, yep. I’m afraid you’re going to have to leave the bottom, which is usually hard for me to take as someone who wants every last drip out of their bottle. One of the more popular LV brews.

Drunk from 50cl bottle bought at Bierhuis in Ossett. Hoppy, pale IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Leini (1177) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2015
Bottle served at a local bar. Golden hazy body with a medium head. Citrus, spices, malt and some weird off flavors. Not my thing.

weordie (231) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
Pours golden with a huge head that just keeps growing. Some citrus aroma and household cleaner. Taste is of steriliser with a bitter finish. Pretty poor to be honest.

nihtila (1402) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2015
17.7.2014. Golden with dense white head. Floral aroma with sour lemon, also biscuit, some minerals. Not very pleasant aroma. Taste has malts, some fruits, biscuit, grapefruit and sour bitter finish. No need to buy again.

Slightly hazy, straw-coloured, with fluffy head. Aroma is slightly mentoly, taste has nice bitterness but with some disturbing soapiness. Crisp and refreshing though.

A british ipa, more like a bitter really. Dry, crisp, hoppy, but not really fruity. Decent, but far from a real ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a bottle. Nice and fresh ipa. It’s a bit basic though. Looks nice and hazy.

olio (7254) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 17, 2015
50 cl bottle.
Pours orange color with a large head. Mandarin and faint hops on the nose, gooseberry bush and some faint grass too. Lots of gooseberries on the flavor, dry hay, malts, nutty notes, mandarin and mild wooden notes on the finish. Way too nutty, malty and "english" for me, too much gooseberries too. Not liking it.

Zarkam (526) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 25, 2014
500ml bottle, hazy orange colour, medium frothy white head, excellent lacing. Moderately malty aroma of nuts and hay with moderate to heavy herbal, earthy and citric hops and some buttery yeast esters. Taste is initially balanced bittersweet turning into a long quite bitter finish with a moderately astringent feel. Full body, oily mouthfeel, average carbonation. Quite pleasant and somewhat complex yet balanced.

sk75 (32) - Ballyshannon, IRELAND - DEC 24, 2014
It pours a light brown colour with a decent white head that lasts and leaves lacing. It has a floral grassy aroma, the taste is sweet with a hoppy dry finish, the mouth feel is full and the carbonation is lively.
