harrisoni (13276) - Ashford, Kent, - MAY 3, 2013
500ml bottle from Sourced Market St Pancras. Clear russet colour with lasting near white head. Grapefruity hoppy aroma. Now that is a very nice beer. Decent full malts and then a lovely grapefruity hop. Very good bitter.

pivnizub (8746) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Bouteille: Almost clear, lively carbonation, big loose to creamy off-White head that very slowly collapses; distinctive hoppy-fruity nose (exotic fruits) over a caramelly-nutty Background; quite robust bitter-sweet flavour, pretty light bodied, n o t soft; lingering dryish fruity-hoppy finish with some balancing caramelly-malty notes. A fine session beer...

BeerViking (2310) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2014
Cask at the brewery tap, deep amber-brown with a clinging white head, nose is tropical fruit with touches of dusty malt, palate initially sweet with hints of golden syrup, then the spicy hops come through with touches of citrus and honeyed malt. Quite heavy bodied for a bitter.

kiwianer (3319) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2014
The head is medium, the body brown and cloudy. It smells hoppy intensive. The taste is less CO2, hoppy, aromatic, a bit mild. Ok, not that interesting...
