Tap @ Fermentoren, Ĺrhus. Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Nose has a little butter. Thankfully non of that later - citrus, marmelade, strawberry and hayish malts. Dry and bitter. Smooth also. Hmmh. Not in prime condition!

Keg @ Birmingham Beer Bash July 14. Pours gold with big white head. Good hop profile, citrus, juice, hops.. some grassiness before a subtle bitter bite. Decent.

500ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Boring aroma, some sticky malts, some aromatic hops. Dishwatery taste. Watery and lemony. Thin. I can tell they use lemon fairy liquid to clean their kit, but they don’t rinse well enough. Weak shit, scroll on past...

On tap at the Hare and Billet, Blackheath. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Pear, baked apple and light malt aroma. Lots of fruit in the flavour- pear, banana. Fruit laden action. Good stuff.

Pale blond. Citrus aroma, quite lemony. Really light and easy to drink with slightly sharp citrus. Feels juicy. Bitterness is not over the top. Quite crisp, dry, thirst quenching.

ThirstyBird (1486) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2014
Pours a clear middle yellow with a hearty white cap. The smell is grain, citrus, candy sugar. The taste is floral, citrus, grain and a bit of sweet light malt. The body is Light+ with nice carbonation. A solid well integrated pale ale...I probably shouldn’t have had a Heady Topper before it!

Swaroga (1272) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2014
Butelka 50cl. OCZY : piwo jest całkowicie przejrzyste o wyjątkowo jasnym, złotym kolorze. Piana jest średniej wielkości, ma konsystencje piany mydlanej. Po nawet kilku minutach utrzymuje się kilku milimetrowa zbita warstwa. NOS : aromat nie jest intensywny ale czytelny i świetnie zapowiada smak : mleczne suchary, trawa cytrynowa, skórka cytryny i liczi. USTA : piwo jest średnio gazowane i puszyste o konsystencji miękkiej wody z sokiem. Na pierwszy rzut mało wyraźne ale po kilku łykach coraz bardziej złożone, aksamitne i subtelne. Przede wszystkim świetnie zbalansowane. Nuty słodowe przypominają mleczne suchary o bardzo umiarkowanej słodkości. Staje się delikatnie cierpkie jak herbata z cienkim krążkiem cytryny. Gorzkość jest delikatna (jak na moje przepalone chmielem kubki smakowe) i nie zalega. Posmak jest cytrusowy i delikatnie cierpki. ODCZUCIA : piwo jest subtelne, orzeźwiające i łatwe w piciu. Całkowicie pod mój letni gust. Jedynie szkoda, że przy tak delikatnym piwie cena nie jest równie subtelna. OCENA : smak : 5/10 pijalność : 9/10 styl : 0

Tap. Clear golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Dirty cloth, wort, fruity, sweet, bit yeasty aroma. Perfume, malty, faint fruity taste. Low bitterness. Light body. Boring.
