harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, - NOV 23, 2006
On tap at Jerusalem Tavern. Which is gold, funnily enough. Disappearing bubbly white head. Citrus hop aroma. Moderately full in mouth, bit of juicy pale malt, quite tangy fruit. Some earthiness, bit of rose petal on aroma and in mouth. Drying finish is pleasant. Fine and quite drinkable and would be nice on a summer’s day

Fules (826) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 26, 2016
Kicsi, nem túl tartós hab, élénk borostyán szín. Illata halovány, leginkább malátás, pici komlóval. Markáns keserű, malátás alapon, jellegzetes ESB. Komoly szénsav és némi fűszeresség jellemzi még. Utóíze jó hosszú keserű. Kellemes, jól iható itóka.

pityu (681) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 9, 2015
Bottle - Clear golden colour, small, quickly fading white head. Malty nose with some bread, grains and a touch of herbal hops. Taste is rather bitter, some butterscotch, grass, herbal notes. Medium body and carbonation, a bit unpleasent hop bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Overall its not bad.

martjoobolut (3147) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 18, 2014
0,5L bottle, BB 03.03.15. Pours amber with a off-white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is hoppy, grass, hint of butter. Flavor is intense hoppy, grass, malt, harsh nutty bitterness, some fruity notes. Finish is dry nutty bitter. Overall: too harsh for me, but not offending.

allmyvinyl (9536) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2014
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear golden amber, short-lived white head. Not much on the nose, touch of sweaty socks actually. Taste is better, some hop bitterness, orange, caramel. That resiny sweatiness builds up though, whilst the overall impression is thin and watery. Not great.

Senka (1059) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 13, 2014
