Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 3, 2014
Keg, Hanging Bat. Hazy, a little dull on the hops - getting more galaxy here - with a mild pale malt character. It is made well but maybe wasn’t thought out with brightness and expressive character in mind.

For the sake of the social interaction just numeral ratings and some highlighted attributes: grapefruit, very nice balance.

McNeillR (1093) - SCOTLAND - JUL 21, 2013
Fairly dank light cloudy brown, little vibrancy but a basket of carbonation producing a loose collar white head. Earthy, supermarket root vegetable nose. Fresh sweat and dehydrated pish tinge. Scoosh of bitterness speedboats away from the initial taste, leaving a fairly murky mango and malt treading palate. Carbonation doesn’t shine through. Things rock back and forth with every sip between bitterness and breadiness with a caramel crust. Linger produces a neat peppery mouthfeel breaker, consumability masks the lack of middle too much for me.
I had a bottle from Beer Ritz about a month before this live rate and just assumed it was a little over-yeasty/unsettled from the pour. I was wrong, just not singing for me.

Bottle, Beerhive, Edinburgh

tiong (3647) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2013
330ml bottle from Ales by Mail

Bottled 03/06/13 - Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grainy notes, exotic fruits and resinous grassy notes. Taste is smooth, hoppy and citrusy with notes of grain, stingy grass and hay. Finish is dry, fruity and hoppy with notes of citrus and grain. Good, quite balanced pale ale.

jd543 (388) - SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2013
Murky honey colour, with a decent white head. Aroma of pine, citrus-lemon/orange/grapefruit, floral hops, sweet malt. Taste is sweet with a sour and light bitter finish. Watery/oily texture, quite smooth, with very low carbonation. Nice beer, but I’ve had many better pale ales, especially from these guys.

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - JUL 18, 2013
Slightly hazy pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, light malts, quite floral. Citrus dominates. Bitter flavour, hops, floral, citrus and honey. Bit thin. Bitter finish, some lingering malt tones.
(From 33cL bottle @ RBESG 2013 Grand Tasting, De Molen. Thanks for sharing, chriso & Boudicca!)
