Scrapersnbeer (1507) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Plenty of citrus peel aroma, estery. Bubbly straw yellow look. Overall bitter, but more a weird, spicy intersection of citrus and hop. I didn’t sense any obvious licorice at play, but maybe that is a contributing party. Not as crisp as the flavor dictates, easily sessioned for a spicy beer. Good flavor, nothing else that impressive.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle brought back from France. Poured a pale golden colour with a large, fluffy white head with visible, natural carbonation. Aroma of banana, mild clove and yeast esters. Pilsner malt flavour with some barley sugar and lemongrass. Finish was quite light with some sultanas and straw.

Madsen1635 (448) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow pour with small white head. Fresh aroma with some malty notes. Taste also has some notes of yeast and citrus. Very refreshing and relative high carbonation.

KeefOz (1155) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2014
Poured a clear pale yellow gold colour with a few millimetres of white bubbles forming a collar. Poor lacing. Carbonation low with small bubbles forming trails. Aroma of malt and moderately strong cloves. Taste of sweet ?vanilla but over-ridden by cloves; low bitterness. Light body. Finish dominated by cloves. OK.

Dervock (646) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle - pours pale yellow with short lived white head. Malt and spice on the aroma. Not much up front, clove spice aftertaste. Nice full carbonation and mouthfeel.

Muggus69 (1553) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2013
750mL corked bottle. Pours a clean golden beer, big white head hangs around. Moderate aroma; light peppery spice, cereal/wheaty malts, some slightly ripe apricot-like and citrus fruitiness. Effervescent carbonation, body a bit lighter than expected, some tartness. Delivers a bit more on the palate; light toasted cereals, subtle fruit esters and a hint of grassy citrus hop character. Medium bitterness, dry finish. Not bad, bit disappointing - usually expect something good from a corked bottle!

Geen schuim, geen koolzuur, geen aroma. Bijzonder weinig smaak. Niet eens vies, onwaarschijnlijk saai biertje.

rosenbergh (8690) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 16, 2013
330 ml bottle. L13030. BB 30/Jul/14. From saveur-biere.com.
Clear pale golden colour with a small white head. Sweet yeasty aroma. The flavour is alcohol, yeast, sweetness and malt. This is quite bad but still drinkable.

Bottle by Fajry.many thanks! Hoppy and yeast aroma. The taste is sweet for a moment and instantly becomes hoppy. It’s not my cup of beer.
