Grima (2089) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, - NOV 12, 2012
The beer is pale yellow in the glass with a flat head. It smells restrained hoppy-bitter and subtly grainy. Starts dominant malty, slightly bitter in the background with a moderate hop aroma. The middle part is grassy hoppy, bitter, again grainy with pale malts and lot of hay in the background. Goes into a very grassy and hoppy finish with lots of hay!

Bottle from Nissa, Hebden Bridge. Golden, no head. Medium bodied with a very light fruitiness in both aroma and taste, although a nice texture in the palate.

FatPhil (9260) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 18, 2014
500ml bottle (Drink Baar, Tallinn)
Diacetyl, sticky aroma. Gold, persistent head. Watery palate, decent carbonation. Dead feel. Sticky resins, but no depth to the hops, no aroma, no proper bitterness, just something chemical. Disappointing show, for English ale, this is poor. Finish does at least still carry the hops, but as I said, the hops were emascuated.

Bière blonde dorée avec un col de mousse blanche faible. Nez essentiellement de céréales. Attaque franchement amère, mais sèche (pas de côté fruitée), le malt domine largement. Bof
