Osprey87 (1161) - London via, WALES - DEC 29, 2013
Bottled at 5.3% on 02/09/13. Cold at a BYOB. Yellow/orange hazy, small white head, lightly sparkling, dense lacing. Smell - orange zest and caramel. Body is medium, carbonation fairly low. Taste - toned down citrus fruits, slight flowers / chlorophyll, decent level of bitterness. Refreshing and highly quaffable. Flavour isn’t particularly inspiring but marks for appearance and aroma.

Saeglopur (155) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 28, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2014 Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Golden to orange hazy body with a nice, creamy, stable, white head, that leaves some lacing. Beautiful tropical aroma of litchi, mango, pineapple, pine, grapefruit, also grass and some bready malt notes. Taste has more citric notes and also pine, grass, bread and some sugar. The mouthfeel is medium, with a medium bitter and citric finish. Great pale ale! Wonderful tropical fruit nose and greatly balanced fruity and malty taste.
