Danyel (1335) - Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2015
Tap. Pours clear light orange with white head. Aroma is very tropical fruit, apple, wheat. Taste is light bodied, high carbonation, a bit dirty...Overall, not that impressive.

Can. Hazy paleish gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry and crisp. Dry seltzer. Mild minerals. Light floralness. A whisper of limey citrus. Light dry finish. Floral linger. Lacks something but inoffensive.

Dogbrick (9439) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Sample at the Badge-Whore Bowl (OSU vs AL) tasting on 01/01/2015. Pours a clear golden color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of herbal wheat and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of malt, grassy hops and wheat. Some fruit in the background. The finish is grainy malt and pithy citrus. Doesn’t quite work.

lusikka (7102) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
473 ml can. Pours a golden colour with a small head. Aroma of sugary sweetness, pear and some graininess. Flavour of heavy grainy malts, heavy residual sugary notes, grass, grains, pear sweetness and cardboard. Light bodied and high carbonation. Tastes like a bulky sweetened European pale lager. Bad.

tiong (4724) - Espoo, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
473ml can from Beermerchants @ Varjopikkujoulut

Pours clear pale yellowish golden with a tiny head. Aroma of strachy malts, hints of lemon juice and sweet earthy cardboard notes. Taste is sweet, cardboardy and starchy with some earthy notes and lemon. Finish is light, carbonated and starchy. Weird. Tastes like a Eastern European bulk lager. Quite bad.

olio (7510) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
473 ml can.
Pours pale clear golden color with a white head. Clove on the nose, some faint hops and lemon. Lemony flavor, some grass and mild herbs. Watery, dull and did I say watery? It does have some interesting nuances though.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2014
47,3 cl can @ tiong, no BBE info
Aroma has lots of butter, some grainy malt and mellow grassy tones. Flavour has grainy malt, butter, minerals and mellow hoppy tones. A wheat ale? I thought this was a pale lager from exotic country. At least there is nothing strongly offensive here. At first I did not locate the cactus here, but now that I know – perhaps this tastes a bit like the cactus long drink ten years ago.

Scopey (8999) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Can from Clapton Craft consumed to celebrate lorna’s birthday. It pours clear pale gold with a small white head. The nose is soft, sweet prickly pear, juicy citrus, grass, straw and toasty grain. The taste is crisp, bitter, grassy, sweet fruitiness, mild sherbet, prickly pear, wheat, earth and pithy lemon with a refreshingly dry finish. Light-medium body and fine, massaging carbonation. Crisp and crushable. Easy going and pretty enjoyable stuff.

RobertDale (4261) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 21, 2014
On tap in Longmont. Comes a clear pale gold with a decent white head. Aroma of malt and grain. Taste is malt, wheat, and citrus (or prickly pear). Refreshing.

bubbleflubber (2035) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2014
From the brewery in Brevard, NC, this pours a clear straw into the glass with an initial sudsy head that reduces to trace lacing. The nose is of wheat grain. Flavors have lemon and agave, grains and hay, finishing grassy. The light body and lively carbonation provide an easy-drinking summer brew without compromising integrity and "copping out" to the traditional "lawnmower" beer. Decent.
