Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2013
Bottle: Poured a deep golden color lager with a huge frothy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of dry floral hoppy notes with light fruity notes and some citrus undertones with a lightly sweet malt base. Taste is dominated by dry floral notes with some citrus undertones and some hoppy notes with a lightly sweet malt base. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very interesting thought so much hops in there you loose sense that this is a lager.

Maris (1000) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2013
From a 500ml bottle on 26/5/2013 (batch number 856, BB 15/8/2014). Pours a cloudy golden orange with a medium bright white head. The nose is fruity, slightly floral, with a bit of honey and caramel in the mix. Taste wise, there’s lots of sweet stone and citrus fruit (peach, apricot, mandarin), honey, and lots of caramel and some bready malt. Finishes with a strong, bold bitterness featuring some lemon and grapefruit. The body is full and carbonation spot on. That it’s 7.5% doesn’t surprise. A terrific, beautifully balanced beer, and one of the best things carrying the lager label you’re ever likely to try.
