Finwe (412) - Grankulla, - FEB 19, 2013
500ml bottle from Stockmann Helsinki. Pours copper-coloured with white, creamy head. Malty aroma with some herb-like hops and grassy tones. Hoppy bitter flavour with some grain and malt. Bitter finish with some sweet malt.

mahkus (15) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2015
Bottle from Tesco at home. Big bubble bath head to start off with. Beer aroma. Honey colour. Taste like water at first sip followed by strongly bitter flavours. Okay but not very interesting.

mike_77 (3482) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2015
Clear golden colour. Light, clean and refreshing. A good, thirst quencher with a dry, bitter finish.

panzerwolf (108) - FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Unlike it’s name, a pale ale. Pours deep gold. Has a taste of slight smoke, malts and hops, with a nice pite of bitterness. Somewhat earthen tone, I really actually enjoyed this one, would buy again!

Moravius (641) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 25, 2014
Flasche (50 cl) von MacDragon’s, Marburg. - Helles Braungelb, leicht trüb. - In der Nase sehr schwacher fruchtig-herber, würziger Hopfen und ein Anflug von stinkendem Käse (Limburger). - Im Antrunk mild zitrusfruchtig hopfig, ein wenig Pampelmuse, gefolgt von harziger Bittere. Blasses helles Malz mit zarten Toast- und Honignoten. Mild rezent, etwas dünn im Mund. Schön trockener, herb-fruchtiger Abgang mit englischem, leicht krautigem Hopfen. - Aufgrund des niedrigen Alkoholgehalts recht dünn, aber schön hopfenfruchtig-aromatisch. Trinkbar.

gegwilson (1534) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle from a Glasgow ASDA. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Little in the way of aroma or flavour really. Hay and light citrus and mild spice. Too much like lager for my tastes.

mighty_meadow (270) - 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.

djoeye (1978) - 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]

Syfher (128) - 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.

Alusmamuts (549) - LATVIA - OCT 3, 2014
Light amber with off-white small head. Quite simple taste starting with sourness and finishing with bitterness.

k0mpsa (1396) - Järvenpää, FINLAND - AUG 9, 2014
Bottle at ruby and fellas, tampere. Little hazy deep golden color, white head. Aroma is pleasant crispy, soft and fruity. Fruity and hoppy taste, malty, dry finish.
