Scopey (8552) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2014
Bottle at home. It pours golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is grainy, dough, toasty, light spice and a touch of sweetness. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemony, soapy, toasty, peppery, metallic notes, wood and grain with a lingering dry finish. Light-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A bit soapy. So-so. I prefer the cask version.

Benzai (9806) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2014
Bottle @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear orange color, medium sized off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is very fruity, mango, peach and nicely hoppy. Taste nicely hoppy, light to moderately malty, again quite fruity with tones of mango and peach and a nice subtle bitterness. Suitable body and carbonation.

djoeye (2247) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 3, 2014
Near-clear deep golden body, off white head reduced to a layer, some lacing. Aroma; caramel malts, mild floral hops, toffee fudges, butter, apple. Taste; fruity mild-bitter hops in front, caramel malts, apple, butterscotch, toffee, salt, mild bread’ish grains. Finishes with malts, grains, still juicy fresh with some light-bitter hops. Normal on palate, normal carbonation, and first of all very fresh and quaffable. This brew somehow reminded me about "czech svetly desitkas". Quite good. [50cl brown bottle, abv3.8%, BB jan.2015, B@K skanssi Turku, T@höme]

mighty_meadow (303) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - NOV 4, 2014
I was sort of expecting this to be dark like the bird it is named after but it turns out to be a very pale ale. Small white head with some lacing. Biscuity with a nice subtle lemon/lime under current. Little bit of saltiness on the tongue. Very gentle fizz which actually adds to the appeal on this one.

ERB92 (503) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
Fruits, grains and grass in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a good but a bit boring bitter.

berkshirejohn (5033) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 22, 2014
50cl bottle from a Tesco in Edinburgh. Amber with a billowing white head; some tropical fruit aroma; lemony citrus taste with a grainy body; refreshing and enjoyable.

Syfher (194) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 4, 2014
Good blond beer, a little bit light but great taste, as the palate. The aroma is not very marked, and that’s not a weakness for this beer. Blonde, usual appearance.

k0mpsa (1644) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2014

Alusmamuts (851) - LATVIA - OCT 3, 2014
Light amber with off-white small head. Quite simple taste starting with sourness and finishing with bitterness.
