ekstedt (6315) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2011
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen, Denmark. Hazy deep goolden, medium off-white head. Fruity hop aroma, with peaches, citrus, and some pine needles. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with bitter finish.

lamas (1527) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Draft at Frisco Taphouse, Columbia, MD on 06/12/11. Served in a goblet/Trappist glass. A clear pale gold colored body with a smallish off-white head. A subtly sweet aroma of cream, vanilla, caramel, a touch of corn, and hints of grass & citrus. Went down fairly thin and relatively creamy. Carbonation was a tad low. Somewhat refreshing. Semi-sweet upfront taste-wise. Creamy middle with some vanilla. Musty. Kinda crisp at the end with a touch of wheat and some citrus. Solid attempt at a lame style.

Benzai (12156) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 13, 2011
Little bit cloudier but almost the same color as a lager (in Dutch:pils) Lovely strong hoppy smell and bitter taste.

Prokroustis (689) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUN 5, 2011
Clear golden fizzy body with a creamy long lasting white head. Nice hoppy aroma with a lot of caramel and strawberry as well. Full palate. Hoppy and sweet flavour, fruits, dry finish.

jredmond (7132) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 5, 2011

maledictum (739) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Not really sure what to expect here. Pours a quite hazy dirty golden amber colour. Very small white coloured head. A little lacing. Big citrus hop aromas in the nose with some minerally yeast character showing through. A little malt sweetness hanging around somewhere in the back. Flavours are dominated by hop bitterness. Some malt sweetness there but the whole thing is slightly out of balance.

molly75 (301) - (Madrid - España), ITALY - JUN 2, 2011
SCHIUMA: abbondante, bianca, non finissima, abbastanza persistente COLORE: giallo paglierino con riflessi arancio, velata INTENSITA’ / FINEZZA / AROMA sentori fruttati e vegetali dati dai luppoli e qualche nota "strana" difficilmente definibile. GUSTO / RETROGUSTO / PERSISTENZA entra con un leggero accenno di dolce dati dai malti, per poi virare su un amaro deciso ma non esuberante, con note agrumate e vegetali. Sensazioni metalliche sul finale, che si mischiano con una leggera astringenza. CORPO / CARBONATAZIONE / CONSISTENZA corpo medio, carbonatazione bassa, sensazione un po’ acquosa --prima cream ale personale, e sinceramente non ho idea di cosa dovrei aspettarmi. Per quello che ho letto dovrebbe essere una sorta di stile ibrido fra una pale ale americana e una pale lager. Effettivamnete si ha una sensazione generica che ricorda un classico prodotto americano, con luppoli in prima linea nelle loro sfumature più fruttate/agrumate; d’altra parte in bocca lascia una sensazione leggera e secca tipica di una pale lager ordinaria ( qualche aggiunta di mais ?? -etichetta in danese- ). Dubbiosa la sensazione metallica abbastanza evidente che ricorda la birra in lattina. Buona nel complesso , ma non so quanto rappresentativa dello stile; quindi giudizio da prendere con le pinze.

TBone (15510) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2011
Bottled 330ml (Beer Planet, BB 05/2012, bottled 05/2010)
Hazy orange color, steady small white head. Strange metallic aroma with hayish hops and wild strawberries. Light to medium-bodied. Nice crisp hoppyness with evident American hop profile. Light sweetish notes. Refreshing, kind of fusion of ale and lager. Summer drink.

Brandman (2610) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 25, 2011
Draught at Brasseire 4:20. Hazy orange body, white head. Aroma has lots of hops, mainly lemon and grapefruit. Some yoghurt, too. little yeasty, but it ok. Nice bitterness and really great cream ale.
