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."

Leighton (13605) - London, Greater London, - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle at home in London. Pours clear gold with a massive, frothy white head. Some tangy, lightly dried citrus in the nose. Light sweet flavor with pale, vaguely doughy malts, a bit of tangerine. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly drying to finish, with some pine needles, mellow tangerine, mango. A tasty APA, though the hops don’t quite sing enough for me.

Benzai (9800) - 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 (1880) - 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.

Taste of caramel malt, grapefruit, orange, peach, apricot, resin and spicy hops. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a slightly oily texture. A smooth, spicy, citrus finish. Light bitterness. Really good for a pretty low ABV APA, nice tropical fruit hop flavours.

BlackHaddock (4733) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014
Cask, hand-pulled half-pint in the Old Red Cow, Smithfield London on 12th Sep 2014. Light amber body with a thin layer of bubbles sat on top. The aroma was of weak caramel and grassy hops. The taste also caramel malt like and bordering on sweet, some fruit notes came and went before a drying hoppy finish.

Skinnyviking (7611) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle at home. Medium high lasting white fluffy head. Hazy milky dark yellow body. Powerful tropical fruit aroma with a touch of lemon. Relatively hoppy fruity flavor with a high carbonation and a long dry an bitter finish. Quite tasty for a beer with such a low alcohol percentage. Well balanced and nice.
