BitchPls (595) - FINLAND - DEC 24, 2014
Clear and pale, white head. Grassy citrus on the nose. Fairly crispy carbonation. Soft body for the ABV. Slightly grassy and balanced bitterness with some floral notes. This is a really nice session ale.

suurjuust (1298) - ESTONIA - DEC 16, 2014
Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Clear golden, soapy white head. Nose and flavor are both your average runofthemill malts and hops, not a lot of fruit to be found. Drinkable though.

Urban_Sprawl (4) - IRELAND - JAN 20, 2014 does not count
Pleasant, if somewhat unremarkable ale; clean taste, no aftertaste, but not strong enough to be a winter beer , seems much more suited to warmer weather. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
