BlackHaddock (3491) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2012
Clear 500ml bottle: best before May 2013, drank on 26 July 2012. Light amber body with a thin white wisp and collar. Hops rule the aroma and taste: floral and citrus in the nose a little more balanced with malts in the taste. Flavours roll around the mouth but it all seems superficial and artificial. This is not unlike a host of Shepherd Neame supermarket brews and isn’t a great advert for the brewery: good job it was cheap.

goozen (2880) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle 0,5ltr: Clear amber coloured beer with an hoppy, grapefruit and citrus taste, in this case not a good combination for me.

mike_77 (2976) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2012
Copper colour. Aroma gives off a real scent of fresh hop buds. Flavour has a slight caramel, malty sweetness then refreshing hop. Very dry finish and a slightly metallic aftertaste. A 4% alcohol bitter that is refreshing and delivers plenty of flavour.

McNeillR (1093) - SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2012
A decent spiritedly nose, caramel body and tufts of an off white head. Unripened fruit in initial taste and malt body quickly separates into a sickly and bitter finish. Trickles of a hop zest get you supping back for more, almost to cover up the previous sour finish on the palate. An ’unputdownable’ ale for all the wrong reasons.

downender (6159) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2012
Bottle. Amber in colour with a decent, off-white head and a large amount of carbonation. Bready, malt aroma with a touch of grassy hop and hedgerow fruit. Flavour had more of the same malts, a hint of nettle and metallic, bitter finish. A challenge to finish.

rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2012
Bottle. Gold, thin shortlived white head and moderate condition. Gentle grassy herbal hops and light caramel sweetness in the nose, dry, bitter and slightly peppery initially in the mouth but with a developing toffee and caramel sweetness before turning hoppily bitter and chalky dry in the finish

dynamiteninja (1473) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2012
Bottle. Pours a orange gold body with a thin white head. Pleasantly surprised on the nose. Whiff of sulphur, some malt, fair amount of hops, Goldings and grapefruit aroma. Fair amount of bitterness. Dry finish.

worldbeertaste (1608) - AUSTRIA - APR 6, 2012
Medium Copper with a thick white lasting off-white. Smells of malt, cinnamon. Medium grainy oily body. Taste of caramel malt but with an overpowering chemical bitter finish that ruins this drink.Citrus and carboard dominate the finish. Not liking this at all. Just aweful.

joe19612 (1810) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark orange colour with a firm white head, real malty aroma with plenty of fruit, the taste is slightly biiter with fruit and has a dry finish.

johndoughty (3880) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle. Pleasant floral aroma upon opening. Citrus and hops dominate and it had far more body than I had anticipated. Its rather complex flavours are not what I had anticipated from a relatively low strength beer.
