yespr (31503) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2011
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is light toasted malt and rather grassy to herbal hops. Pilsner bitter and grassy mixed with a dry toasted malt base. Light herbal into a malty finish.

sm89walt (1768) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 17, 2011
500ml bottle. Clear chestnut brown body with an effervescent carbonation and a thick & lasting, creamy, rocky off-white head leaving a fair lace. Toffee sweetness on the aroma with mid fruits and toasted, nutty malts. Chewy sweet malt flavours, delicate citrus with a grassy hop & toasted malt bitterness. Light to medium body, medium carbonation and a decent length, dryish finish.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 15, 2011
500ml bottle from Waitrose. Clear light amber with an average lasting creamy/frothy off-white head. Aroma is quite mild, very hard to pick out anything other than sweet cereal grain and lightly acidic floral bitterness. Taste is also mild, but quite decent - same, but add more bitter pungency, just a hint of alcohol, and tart apple as it warms - even a hint of dry spiciness. Light-bodied, softly carbonated, finishes fairly quickly - starts with the sweet light grain and leaves behind a faint dried wildflower bitterness. I know Iím supposed to hate it because itís filtered, but I quite like this, even if it is light and simple - itís clean and refreshing and not too sweet.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 8, 2011
Bottle from Waitrose. Pours a deep caramel orange colour. Aroma is musty hay and straw, quite barnyard with some yeast. Flavour isnít too bad some prominent bitterness. Grassy hay type qualities with malt quite prominent and a foamy mouth-feel. Little grassy linger also.

niquillis (977) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle from Tesco. Pours amber with a thin head. Awful aroma of used dish water. The taste makes up for it, caramel, citrus and well balanced. Good stuff.

OldManWinter (18) - Alabama, USA - JUN 25, 2011
this is a very good beer. the manure-like aroma is more than made-up for with the delicious taste.

Geiserich (3412) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUN 1, 2011
Hazy orange color, creamy head. Aroma has a lot of hop notes, citrus peel and hints of malt. Flavor has intensive notes of limetten, citrus peel and light bitter hops in the end. Perfect thirst quentching.

bhensonb (11282) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle from Mike in Truro. Pours amber with a creamy/bubbly off-white head. Aroma of light roast malt with some light type fruit. Flavor is roast malt with some fruity/citrus hop. It is bitter but the malt is strongly present, perhaps slightly dominant in the finish.
