24th Jan 2015: my first beer from Oklahoma (I think). Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Wine meet. Poured a cloudy light golden colour with a small white head. The nose and taste were of tart, sour lemons with other bitter citrus fruits in the background. Interesting and refreshing in the middle of some heavy malty beers tasted on the day.

Bottle share. Cotteridge Beano. Hazy straw colour. White head. Sour lemon. Funky. Yeasty. Pithy. Dry, and tart. Taste is pithy bitter. More tartness on the finish. Nice antidote to some of the big hitters prior.

Pours a hazy pale yellow. Holy shit! I feel like I’m licking a horse when I drink this. Never had a beer like this before. Aromas of strong horse blanket and funk. Citrus too. Flavors are horse blanket, vinegar, white wine, and a crisp hop finish. Outstanding.

large white frothy head. flat sparkling light yellow body. good lacing. mostly diminishing. aroma: white wine, noble hops, citrus lemon, moderate yeasty, dough. if: light acidic very light sweet. ff: light acidic very light sweet and light bitter (lembrando lupulo nobre, floral); long duration. palate: light body, dry texture, lively carbonation and light astringent finish. Balanceada, de alta drinkability, refrescante. Amargor dá uma escalada na segunda metade da cerveja, mas não prejudica o equilíbrio do conjunto. Lembra bastante vinho branco. 150s
