Pyobon (1060) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2012
(bottle) Poured one pint of hazy amber beer and one pint of foam. Nice zesty grapefruit hop aroma. Light body and fizzy. Pleasant malt with lots of hop flavours, but not a lot of hop bitterness. Tangy grapefruit and some peppery spice. Some pleasant bitterness in finish. Overall a nice APA but spoiled by the ridiculous effervescence.

omega (783) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 14, 2012
A good rich ale which has good flavours. Not overly hoppy, but you know you are drinking a good beer. Quite dry which means for Joe Bloggs not going to be a favourite.

Brenhophead (638) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2013 amazing 500mL bottle. Pours slightly cloudy deep golden with a small white head and a nice grapefruit/grassy aroma. Very nice resinous/fruity flavour with a sweet malty backing (golden promise?).

BenH (2878) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 5, 2011
From bottle. Pours golden with white head. Fruity hop aroma, pineapple and grapefruit. Taste is same with slight caramel malt backbone. Lots of hops on the taste, plenty grapefruit, vert tasty. Slight bitter finish. Good shit

Mortlach (1124) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 9, 2011
08/09/2011 Brasserie 4:20 (500ml bottle). Ambrata chiara, lievemente torbida, schiuma bianco sporca, abbondante e persistente. Aroma indecifrabile, poco intenso e con qualche imperfezione. Malto, caramello, una nota metallica, sentori di acqua saponata. Il luppolo fatica a venir fuori. In bocca è assolutamente anonima, acquosa, insipida, con un corpo modesto. Una piccola delusione, dato che di questo birrificio ho apprezzato moltissimo la porter.

[500ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Blonde pour, with a fluffy white head. Slightly oaty, zesty lemon aroma. Some hops on the palate. Reminded me more of a golden ale than an APA – until the aftertaste, when that Cascade zing arrives [19082011]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle at Craigs. A blonde pale ale with passion fruit aroma and flavour. Aroma is a little sweet with caramel and barley also. Similar flavours. A little thin but OK.
