Too fizzy, with a lack of flavour I was expecting from this style of beer. I am not an expert in rating qualities of beer, but I can’t workout what temperature this should be served at. The bottle was cold, but the beer was really gassy and metallic. Maybe it should be served warmer to help improve what little flavour it had. I think I was ripped off at $21 for a six pack. If I had known that Fosters had a hand in it I would have surely passed.

Big cirtus. Just like it says. First of all, very unique aroma is shocking me. Later I realized this is a big citrus. Feel woody. But not my style.

Theydon_Bois (9131) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle at the RHCC, cheers to Nate, 06/09/14. Copper golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is light citric peel, subtle hops, grass, bread dough, bitter orange. Taste follows, less depth. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. So so APA, the hops and trops don’t shine!

Capa (2031) - Manama, BAHRAIN - AUG 30, 2014
Light golden with a white head. Aroma is lightly citrus. Medium body. Citrus with a bit of toasted malt in the flavor, maybe a bit of grass. Decent brew. Much better when I had it on draught than when bottled.

sm89walt (1766) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2014
Keg - The Newport Arms, Newport. Poured a clear, bright amber with a thick, creamy, lasting and uniformly lacing white head. Solid biscuity, bready malt backbone with earthy, leafy tones and a gentle grassy, pithy hop bitterness. Light to medium body, soft to medium carbonation with a crisp, somewhat firm mouthfeel and fine length,if moderate intensity, finish.

kustie (176) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Straightforward pale ale with no specialties. Aroma quite minimal. Taste is refreshing and thin.

maus (37) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2014
Poured from a bottle. Nice head, golden clear colour. Nice aroma, faint citrus and pleasant new world hoppyness. Taste is good, crisp. Decent pale ale, nice on a summer day.

Lagerboy (1259) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
345 ml bottle brought back from ’Stralia by my Fast and Aggressive chum. Clear light copper, off-white lasting foam. Aroma is mostly caramel, herbs, grass. Light grainy caramel malt taste, somewhat aqueous, faint herbal earthy hop. Average carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Clean, sessional and unremarkable. Apparently it’s better straight from the bottle! Cheers Mate! MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)
