"there’s a quick sweetness to it up front, but that quickly fades and is overpowered by the hops. I’d like it to last just a bit longer, but this is a pretty good beer anyway."

I had this at Global Brew. Pours copper with a off white head. Taste malt, Carmel. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It was a nice tasting beer, but I didn’t have enough to truly appreciate it.

Tap. Pours clear copper with a medium fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is caramel and toast malt, light fruity esters and earthy, citrus, and floral hops. Flavor is light malt, medium hops and bitterness, light esters with a dry finish. Light body, low warmth and medium carbonation.

Beersiveknown (3088) - NORTHERN IRELAND - OCT 9, 2011
Centennial hops nose with initially syrup rubicon mango then an unpleasant acetic note, may have been on too long. Sweet malt finish.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2011
On cask at the Edward Wiley in Glasgow. Pours a dark amber colour with a thin beige head. Hoppy aroma of pine, passion fruit and pineapple. Similar flavours with a nice caramel and barley backbone. US style ale. An oily mouth-feel with mild bitterness and a dry linger. Very nice.

kwik-lime (1346) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2011
Cask at JDW in Surbiton. Deep red with a small, frothy head that lasts nicely through the pint. Aroma isn’t the strongest but pleasant taste, a dry bitterness and earthy hops. Didn’t notice it was 5%. Quite low carbonation. Good beer.

shoulderbroken (2114) - Tokyo, JAPAN - SEP 30, 2011
Cask at the N16 Wetherspoons. Dark red with dense frothy head. Takes a while to settle like a guinness would. Aroma slightly hoppy. Taste slightly malty and a bit bitter. Little bit spicy and a bit creamy. Nice enough, but definitely nothing special.
