Benzai (8140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Clear orange to copper color, no head. Smell and taste malts, sweet fruityness, a very sweet resinous hoppy bitterness. Too much actually, I don’t really like it.

ejr (141) - Sarpsborg, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2014
Helt klar kobberfarge med et hvit skum, skummet la seg veldig raskt som en ring. Litt svak aroma av malt, karamell, frukt og sitrus. Smaken er litt mer tydlig enn aroma. Smaker av malt, karamell, grapefrukt, røde bær og moden frukt.

Vighals (1100) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2014
Orange klar i fargen med tynt hvitt skum. Karamellukt. Søt, bitterheten kom heldigvis, selv om den var fraværende i lukten. Kort bitter ettersmak.

Beer4000 (4440) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 15, 2013
Cask @ The Sun Inn, Faversham. Clear, dark golden body with a small off-white head. Mild aroma of caramel and citric fruit, the malt is dominating more than the hops compared with bottle version. Nice, cask soft malt flavor, fruity and moderate bitterness. Medium body and light, smooth aftertaste. Nice and refreshing session ale.
