mR_fr0g (3095) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Bottle at home from Euston M&S. Aroma is crisp lemon zest, toasty, mineral. Golden straw clear pour with a thin scummy head. Flavour is clean biscuity malt, lemon zest, slight grassy hop. Some floral ester characters in there as well. Palate is crisp and light with medium carbonation. Tasty.

DruncanVeasey (7189) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Thought this was JHB? Last sampled for breakfast on the back seat of a National Express between Heathrow and Gatwick. This bottle back to back with a Kernel. Slim-lidded lager gold wafting with pine, white musk and mandarin handwash, boiled flowers. Decent sweet brittle (lightly buttered) pine, lime and crackers flavour possibly mildly damaged by bottling. Buttery grass bitterness and lime finish. I probably shouldn’t but prefer this to the Kernel.

culchiem (2512) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2013

FatPhil (9344) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 2, 2013
500ml bottle (M&S, Tallinn) - thanks Marduk!
Amazingly marmaladey aroma, grapefruit and other citrus zest. Touch malty too, but it’s a bit thin. Flattish palate, gently sweet. Simple but tasty pale bitter. A bit papery. Drying finish, long and dusty, a bit earthy chalky, but still a bit sweet too. Adequate for the strength, but a bit thin.

500ml bottle. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, stays somewhat. Hops, marmalade, grainy, oranges in aroma. Burnt caramel, hops, grainy, marmalade, sweet flavor. Dry hoppy aftertaste.

omhper (19364) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2013
Bottled, from M&S, Woking. Almost clear golden, small head. Aroma of custard, apricot and mango. Mid sweet with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Elegant citrusy hops, mild soothing malt. Mid bitter finish.

agent_persik (395) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 28, 2013
Clean golden color, small white head. Aroma of citrus hops, malt, some spice, floral and grassy notes. Taste is similar with notes of peach and melon, dry sweet with medium bitter hoppy finish. Light body and lively carbonation. Quite decent and refreshing ale.

suurjuust (1053) - ESTONIA - SEP 20, 2013
Hazy yellow, small white head. Nose is spicy hops, malt, some sweet hints, grass, citrus. Tate is hoppier than the taste would suggest, bitterness, some malt, grassy tones. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Thin to almost-medium body, medium carbonation, watery palate. Thin, but very drinkable and refreshing.
