Hover Rate .... Yeah ! Rating a can on a Hovercraft - top that ya bastards ! On the IOW Jolly Day crossing the water on the way back, thanks to Scopey for this pick up. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering that quickly dissipates to a swirl and edgeing. Nose is bready, strong pale malts, sweet notes, straw, fruity suggestion. Taste comprises bready notes, sweet licks, pale malt, hint of orange, grain, cereals. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. Ok for style, best beer I’ve had on an inflatable ball bag that crosses the sea!

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2014
Can shared on the hovercraft from Isle of Wight to Portsmouth - big thanks to Paul for scoring this one. Pours clear, deep gold with a foamy, white head. The nose has lots of rich white bread and general dough. Medium sweet flavor with creamy, doughy pale malts, faint cereal, light bitter hay and only minimal alcohol presence. Medium to full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with mostly sugary white bread and a bit more dough. Simple but incredibly drinkable for the ABV. This is a beer for the discerning tramp.

SlackerMads (1607) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Discreet hovercraft rate thanks to Scopey. Can. Pours clear yellow with a medium sized diminishing white head. Sugar, candy, fruity, berries, warming alcohol. Medium body, oily/sticky texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet, low bitterness, medium alcoholic. Not terrible, but soon gets cloying.

Can - Sweet pale malts.  Clear gold with a decent white head.  Clean rich pale malt with a nice booze kick.  Dangerously easy drinking.

Scopey (6831) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2014
My first ever "hover-rate"! Can during the IoW Jolly on the Hovercraft. It pours clear gold with a decent white head. The nose is sweet, doughy, corn, grainy,juicy and sugar. The taste is crisp, sweet, clean, doughy, corn, icing sugar and warming alcohol with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Pretty good for the style. Hides abv well while you are getting your buzz on. OK.

Pinball (10798) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
50cl can from kvickly at 6.5 dkk on offer. eksotisk drankerbajer. clear yellow, smooth white head. flowery and malty aroma, somewhat sweet, but far from as bad as i had expected at that abv. flavor is malty, sweet flowery, alc and old euro hoppy bitterness comes at you in the aftertaste. chemicalic note in the aftertaste. perhaps best served by being thrown into a bonfire and forgotten about.

McTapps (4073) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Can bought at an international food store in Eastbourne, Seaside Road. Pours out in a clear light amber / golden colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of malt and white bread. Taste of sweet malt, sugar, leaves, caramel, cake and barley. Awful malty-sweet finish. Awful stuff.

MichaelAwesome (4070) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
From local Lidl ind Eastbourne - shared with McTapps. No real nose, maybe some sugar and malt. Still easy to drink with a high dominance of sugar, malt and some straw. Could have been sugarwater with some ethanol in.
