LinusStick (2814) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Very nice session beer. Didnít even know how low alcohol content it had until rating it right now. Aroma was average. Lemon and dry grass. Pour was a light cloudy gold with a half finger white head. Taste was big, juicy and hoppy. Orange, lemon and dry grass with a hot bitterness. Very full and flavorful for a low ABV beer. Finish is strongly bitter. Medium carbonation.

BlackHaddock (3485) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
22oz bottle all to myself while sitting on my daughters balcony overlooking Balboa Island: 16th March 2014. I thought this was a good beer from start to finish, golden, hoppy and just nice! The alcohol level suited the flavours and although hoppier than the UK beers Iím more used too, this didnít try to kill my palate like some I tried while in California.
