pivnizub (8853) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - AUG 26, 2007
On draught at the Bow Bar, Edinburgh: Deep golden to copper coloured, small foamy layer with a little lace; solid fruity (Riesling) and floral hoppy nose; robust bitter-sweet taste, light to medium bodied; hops and lemons in the lingering, vinous bitter-sweet finish. A very pleasant, first class session beer......

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 9, 2007
Half pint at the Great British Beer Festival, a light gold with a white bubbly head. A strong hoppy aroma. A hoppy and bitter palate, cleansing - but dominates any flavours.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - MAY 23, 2007
Cask, Whey Pat Ale Festival, St Andrews. Gold with a thin white head. Slightly sweet with distinct off-taste... Mouth is slightly more robust on sweetness, watery, off-tasting. Palate is sweet and grabbing, with some bitter balance. Pity about the bad taste and nose.

Cask at GBBF 2006. A golden beer with a rim of beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with quite strong notes of fruit and lighter notes of flowery hops. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel, flowers, and hops.

Any first impressions?
-A ring of foam circles the clear peach golden.
-Feeble Saaz hops barely affect the nose of the sleeping grain.
-Wooden hoppiness and discreet sweet fruitiness comprise most of the flavor profile.
-The low carbonation opens a window onto the flowing brook which traverses this weak malt landscape.

What if you dig deeper?
-Leafy hop bitterness is rather low, but does dry off the finish.
-Malt flavors are minimal, and mostly uninteresting.
-The mouthfeel is tired and therefore terribly soporific.
-I don’t know what was attempted here, but next to an Ossian in superb form, this wound up to be one for the selective memory loss program.

On cask at the Halfway House, Edinburgh.

Standing Order, Edinburgh. Nice golden colour, head fairly thick and lasts ok. A well balanced beer that is actually very refreshing! Liked it.
