JStax (3444) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Ceramic swingtop 750 ml bottle poured into a footed pilsener glass. Pours a bright, hazy copper with a big, fluffy white head of foam. Pretty good retention. The aroma has notes of candied grapefruit peel and pine. Taste has a thicker pine bitterness that moves to a juicy, lemon citrus sweetness. The alcohol is a touch noticeable toward the finish. Light to medium body. Low to medium carbonation.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 22, 2013
Citrus fruits on the nose. Malty sweetness the second it gets in your mouth with a lowish carbonation. Hoppy bitterness at the back end with a slight hint of a floral essence. Would not have said that it 8.8%

McNeillR (1608) - SCOTLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Dank hefty yellow, little lacey or something else with a white head that flattened quickly. Peppery/spicy lemon peel and straw hop nose - bouquet. Nice, terse maltyness and sweet bitterness throughout. Decent metallic tang, moreish carbonation mouthfeel. Fairly bloody tidy and passable for 8.8%. p>Bottle, Black Friday Tasting, Beer Of Europe
