JorisPPattyn (9531) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2009
Small to medium dirty-white head, fed by fine but lively pearling in metallic chromate-yellow beer. Faint ammonium smell upon opening, then dry sweet malts. Some fruity aromas indeed (fresh peach, lemon, honey,...) but as to hops... Grasping bitter flavour in the taste, the hops are there, now, superposed on distinct corn flakes. Quite metallic finish. Light body, well-carbonated - lively but not fizzy. Pinch of saltiness in the aftertaste. The difference experienced between nose and flavour proves an adagio I’ve long cherished: UK or EU aroma hops, as Goldings or Saaz, are actually unsuited to be used in very large quantities, as they get too easily metallic. If agreable bitterness AND aroma are needed, use USA C-hops or NZL ones. Txs to DeanS!

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2009
From bottle. Clear golden with a good frothy white head. Citrus aroma and bitter hops. Bitter pale ale. Citrus, lemon and grapefruit a comes through. Just doesn’t seem to mould together, a bit odd really.
