JStax (3551) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Draft pour. The beer is a clear gold color with a white bead of foam. The aroma has grainy malty notes and some faint grass. Taste is more of the same. A fairly neutral beer. Not much going on here.

Gangstergafje (173) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2015
Looks like a regular beer with a little white head. It has a nice fizzling apes fence. The smell is sweet and fruity. It has the typical pale ale citrusy hop aroma. It had the refreshing taste of a typical pale ale, sweet citrusy hops, fresh mown grass. Nice one.

DCLawyer (1755) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2015
Draft at Ireland’s Four Provinces in Falls Church. Copper with moderate white head. Malt, with citrus and spice coming through. Decent enough.

dlihcsnatas (428) - Texas, USA - APR 15, 2015
Amber/Red brew with nice head. While it looks very good the aroma suggested otherwise. Some malt aromas but something off too and the taste followed that with some malt flavors with a bland and dry bitterness. Very thin body, about like drinking flavored water. Just not at all impressive or worth the import price tag.

Joakgust (1094) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden beer with a large white head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, bread, herbs, hay and dried fruit. Flavor is fruity with notes of caramel, bread, herbs, hay and dried fruit. Well balanced.

BlackHaddock (4737) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
4th April 2015: 500ml bottle at home. Poured into a UK pint sleeve. Light amber and clear, the head a full and deep white foam pillow. Malt lead to both the nose and taste, any sweetness is tempered by the hops which give a bitter and dry finish to each gulp (this isn’t a sipping beer, this is a gulper). I liked it, although it could have been thicker body wise.

MrBlueSky93 (436) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2015
On tap at Kells Bar, Slieve Russel Hotel, Ballyconnell. Pours copper coloured with a single finger white head. Aroma of light orange, caramel, toffee. Initial light malts, then caramel, toffee, a little woody, raisins, quite sweet in places, nice lingering bitterness. Nice.

Ambro206 (272) - ITALY - MAR 23, 2015
Una birra chiara, aspetto anonimo. Aroma assente. Dovrebbero aver usato luppoli americani per questa birra ma traccia non ce n’è. Equilibrata. Industriale.
