Hopverdju (663) - BELGIUM - MAY 10, 2016
Fles. Goudblond bier met rijke mooie schuimkraag. Geur: fruitig en ongelooflijk, werkelijk een cassis geur! Smaak: scherp bitter, iets citrus en harsachtig. Goede koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk bitterig. Lekker bitter bier.

jamestulloch (3428) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 6, 2016
Bottle. Hazy golden body with a medium white head. Lively carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of peppery malt and shortbread. Flavour of earth, tonic water and underripe pear. Thin to medium body with a light, oily texture. Fizzy carbonation. Simple and subtle.

JohnCook101 (535) - - MAY 10, 2015
Hazy amber, very small slightly off-white head. Aroma is light, citric. Citrus and pine flavours. Very simple. Really powerful bitter finish that overwhelms everything else. Uncomplicated, perhaps unsophisticated but pleasant.

harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2015
Bottle from Strand Wines Walmer and drunk on a train. Hazy pale gold lasting white head. Really fruity aroma. Yes that lovely hedgerow fruit. Another effortless spot on outstandingly brilliant single hop Mallinson beer. Captures the essence of the hop and tastes wonderful. This is how to do a single hop golden ale. Wow. The black berry and black currant flavour is great. Excellent bitterness. Just top notch.

jamesie1857 (1954) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2015
Cask at Three Tuns, Dronfield - Clear yellow body, thin white foam. Nose is an odd berry like aroma, little bit of citrus. Taste is cereal and a fruit berry background. Nothing too unpleasant but I’m not a fan.
