shorlin (662) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
Nice looking amber, little bit of head. Decent little aroma of caramel and fruit.also getting those English hops. Taste is ok, somewhat bitter. Not super beer, but not bad.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2014
Bottled 17/09/14. A golden coloured beer with a white head and lace. Quite creamy and sweet in places. Typically macro. The flavours don’t work for me. It’s friendly and clean and deliberately brewed the way it is I suspect; it’s just not for me.

SlackerMads (1657) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2014
Bottle, 2015-06-30. Hvis Allan Olsen kan lave et nummer, der hedder ’49, kan jeg vel os drik sån en øl. Let uklar gylden med en ikke så stor skumkrone igen. Korn, sukker og grøntsager i næsen. Smagen er mest domineret af kål, måske lidt honning og med lidt god vilje noget korn og græs. Ikke meget sødme, behagelig bitterhed med en lang finish. Fesen øl, kan drikkes som alternativ til moderat fysisk pres.

Full but bitter, too bitter to be amazing, and not tremendously complex in flavour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ippopotamo36 (254) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 25, 2014
0,5 bottle courtesy of an English colleague. Consumed in Kosovo. Amber orange colour, slightly hazy, compact light beige foamy head which stays compact and tick. Nose: grass harvest, a bit of durian fruit (!) and basic malts. Mouth: amber malts, dry palate and balanced bitterness. Basic overall body which does not let this beer distinguish although it is easy to drink and bitter/dry enough to be enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheCametron (1823) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle. Amber with a White head. Nice yeasty and characterful flavour with some peppery hops. Surprising and quite delicious bitter. I’ve been starved of them for a while. Everyone wants what they can’t have.
