mR_fr0g (9533) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2014
Bottle at home from B&M Watford. Clear golden colour with a loose off white head. Slight haze. Aroma is composed of mellow citrus fruits, peach, light caramel malt sweetness. English yeast esters and berry on the nose as well. Flavour is initially straw and slightly caramel malt sweet and then sharp citrus grapefruit and lemon rind. Finish has an assertive rough straw and grapefruit bitterness. Medium palate, mid sweet and crisp in the finish, medium carbonation. Really bit hop hit in this beer. Very refreshing and perfect for this fine summerís eve.

trotwood (51) - Warsaw, POLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle 4.8%. Pours clear amber. Very peculiar aroma of American hops and gooseberries (promised on the etiquette). Nice taste and solid spicy bitterness make it a very good beer. Drinkable.

AshtonMcCobb (5381) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 12, 2014
On cask @ the Stockbridge Tap. Appearance - golden with a slight haze and nicely proportioned head. Nose - fresh sweat and citrus. Some hay in the background. Taste - more sweatiness and grapefruit and pith on the finish. Palate - light to medium bodied with a tangy texture that turns into a long dry finish. Overall - if youíre happy with the sweat thing, which I donít mind personally, this is very refreshing.

Brandman (2848) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 11, 2014
Cloudy golden body, white head. Aroma has huge peachy soap, exotic fruits, some lychee and bit mellow maltiness. Wonderful aroma. Flavour is really harsh bitterness with grainy malt. Some tart fruits. Very hoppy, bit flat and watery. Nice session beer.
