mighty_meadow (182) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Pours light gold with nice white head. Nothing much in way of aroma which makes the initial hoppiness quite surprising. A bit thin which prevents this getting higher marks but good enough to buy again.

Maxbier (200) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2014
Light golden color, white head. Light malt aroma. Light body easy drinking pale without the cardboard flavour of the big commercial pale lagers. Not exciting but not he offensive either.

30/V/14 - 50cl bottle @ home - BB: 30/V/14 (2014-576) Thanks to Sebletitje for sharing the bottle!

Clear orange beer, aery off-white head, unstable, dissipates quickly, non adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, citrus, peaches, some exotic fruits, bit of caramel sweetness. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: hoppy bitter start, some citrus, fruity, grains. Aftertaste: bitter hops, citrus, little watery, soft fruity notes, nice beer! Heavily underrated, if you ask me...

Pours golden, up front floral aroma, light and crisp without too much hoppy bitterness. Apricot sweet instead.

Bouteille 50cl, B 31/05/2014. Orangée léger, col blanc fin. Arôme est fruité agréable, léger malté biscuité avec un citronné feuillu en rétro. Palais est léger malté anglais typique, houblonné subtil citronné avec ici ce profil très anglais dans l’EKG. Malt rajoute une petite rondeur couplée d’une petite pointe légère épicée et d’amertume. Légère et sympa tout en restant dans les lignes classiques.

Holmen2 (781) - NORWAY - MAY 30, 2014
Golden. Bright, white head. Flowery aroma of citrus, pine shoots and new-mowed grass. Taste is reminiscent of aroma, but softer. Balanced with malt sweetness. Moderate bitterness. Fine, but short aftertaste.

Godfather50 (48) - SCOTLAND - MAY 18, 2014
Refreshing light pale ale with citrus notes and good mouthfeel. This has been misclassified as a bitter as there is no great battering hop presence. It’s balanced because the aroma hoping matches the pale malt at low ABV. Good for Marsdens although I’d question the teenage pros on their website. Be nice to learn the actual hop and grain. Drank with RD wishing Brian speedy return.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle from the local shop. Clear medium gold with a medium slightly off white frothy head. Aroma is grassy, citrus, malty. Flavour is hoppy, peppery, mild bitter finish. A bit dull but wasn’t too bad.

Bottle from Co-op. Gold pour with a white head. Apricot and tangerine aroma. Light spice and fruit flavour. Quite bitter. Not bad.
