Brewer’s blog: "New beer brewed today, Wreckless, a very hoppy / aromatic 4.8% Pale, loaded with Citra and Amarillo hops, looking forward to this one, should be lovely. Think it is time to start brewing at full length rather than the 50% I’ve been running at until now. Update : Just had a quick taste of Wreckless, massive amounts of citra and amarillo tropical fruits coming through,very pleased so far."

Na, wenn das mal kein britisches Aushängeschild ist ! Mit so wenig Alkohol so viel Aroma und Bumms zu zaubern ! Schön im Hopfen, leicht in der Zitrusfrucht, super Perlung, milde Bitterkeit. Wenn Macclesfield Town SO zocken würde wie das Bier hier - wow.

Bottle from trade. The beer has got a hazy orange-golden colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of fresh hops, oranges and blossoms. Taste of hops, flowers, pine, herbs, mild spices, oranges, blossoms, mild citrus fruits, bread. Wonderful to drink, very quaffable. Loved it.

Douberd (3190) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2015
( Redwillow Wreckless) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 4.8% Golden orange colour on the body, slightly hazy. Two fingers tall white head sitting on top, with very good retention. Aroma of citrus, light grapefruit, tropical fruits, passionfruit. A bit weak on taste at first but with nice notes of tropical fruits, citrus, grass, hints of grains, caramell malts and a mildly bitter finish. Eventually it leaves a positive impression. Medium thin body, good soft carbonation. Quite good.

Benzai (10175) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear light to medium orange color, small white head. Aroma is malts, a bit buttery, toffee malts. Tastes about the same: malts, toffee malts, caramel, a slight bitterness, butter. Hops? Oh no, tastes like they’ve never been there at all. Average body and carbonation. Not good.

gegwilson (2119) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2015
Bottle from Heaton Hops, Manchester. Pours golden with a frothy white head. Good hoppy aroma with notes of pine. The taste is bitter with pine again. A little caramel malt in the background. Nice lingering finish. Light and refreshing. I could easily drink a lot of this. An excellent session ale.
