Profanity (18) - Espoo, - JUN 8, 2014
I was surprised by this one. I just chose randomly something from the local shop and expected it to be some tasteless mass product with fancy label for young dudes (don’t ask why I chose this one then). Well I was wrong, this is really tasty and fruity with lots of hoppy flavours. Tasty indeed for such a mild beer. I will most certainly go buy some more of this stuff from the shop 100m from my flat.

Bottle from Cambridge Wine Merchants, Mill Road. Mid-gold with a spotty white head. Quite intense carbonation. Smells of peach, citrus, a bit of grass, a but of sulphur. Taste is gorgeously bittersweet, immensely juicy. Finish slightly too bitter and moderately astringent. Decent beer from Oakham.

pabloscafe (39) - - OCT 8, 2015
Bottle from Morrisons Supermarket 5 ways in Brum. I like this beer. The aroma is somewhat lacking but I like the zesty and bitter contrasts. There is a lemony tone to it that reminds me a touch of the Salopian ’Lemon Dream’ which I like very much. I will be trying this again and hope to try it draught soon.

ALLOVATE (2771) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 22, 2015
Pastel, yellow gold, misty, with fine and scarce carbonation and a sloppy, messy white foam atop. Big, plump, citrus fruit nose hinting at navel and blood orange, orange marmalade and desert lime with just a hint of toasted, sweet malt. Plenty of pinewood, plenty of peppery spice and plenty of fruit on the palate. Nice, lasting bitterness with a dry finish. Firm feel yet slightly oily and resinous. Malt is grainy and cereal-like with light sweetness aiding the juicy citrus. Only fault, if you can call it that, is a touch of diacetyl that stands out but doesn’t hinder too much. Body is light but there is enough presence. Very refreshing and sessionable. Solid!! (50cL, BB 30/09/15, Luckies Liquor, East Vic. Park)

beeebon (354) - Cornwall, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
Bottle from B&M. Pours golden yellow with thin white head. Arpoma has lots going on, citrus, floral, herbal, grassy, straw and mild malt. Taste is initially quite sweet and them medium to strong lingering bitterness and quite dry. A brilliant ale with lots of taste especially as it is rather low in strength. Definitely getting more of this!
