Fin (7018) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle picked up directly from Siren Brewery, Finchampstead; Berkshire, 20th November 2013 consumed at home Sunday 22nd November 2013 Hazy dark gold/light amber with white head. A little grapefruit on the nose, fresh zippy aroma, little tingly. Citrus dominates in the mouth, grapefruit, resin, quite dry, nicely bitter. Soft in the mouth little bit of spruce or pine as well as the grapefruit almost creates a numbness across my tongue. I like it a lot, it is quite different from the others I’ve had recently, a bit more stripped back and straight down the line, albeit bloody hoppy and ticking all the right boxes.

allmyvinyl (2173) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 23, 2013
330ml bottle at home. Pours golden amber with a thin tight white head, nice lacing. Lots of citrus aromas, more on the lemon end of things, some pine notes, some Belgian yeast spice. Taste brings a sherbet note from the yeast, good further bitterness. Quite similar to Stewart’s recent First World Problems (ahem), only with a higher abv and a thinner finish.

Zer0 (1125) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours clear light copper with a lacy white head. Aroma is pine, some banana (?!), caramel, floral and something I honestly can’t place. Nice and heavy bitter and light to moderate sweet. Medium body. Still something odd about this one, not bad but odd.

MrHangover (2141) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle @ tasting, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a murky, olive coloured beer with a very big white head on top. Aroma of light citrus and mostly moldy yeasty influences. Flavor is fairly bitter but has again this big yeasty background. Not very impressive, don’t like this yeasty background in my hoppy beers, should be more crisp and clean.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is sweet citrus fruit and a little creamy smooth grassy hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a strange liqourice bitter slightly alcoholic palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Great up front, but didn’t like the finish.
