I was very excited to get my hands on this. However, my excitement was soon scuppered. Very average and not at all exciting. Didn’t bother with another pint, and probably wouldn’t again.

King_Alex_II (671) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 12, 2015
Pale golden color with porous white foam head. The smell is hoppy. The taste is bitter hoppy,but has a surprising dry tart part, that comes quickly and stays as an aftertaste. This beer is a little special,yet keeps the character of the style. Very good indeed.

Hippoman (167) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2015
500ml Bottle from Bottle, Heaton Moor, Greater Manchester. Unappetisingly light yellow but with a surprisingly thick and lasting white head for a bottled beer. Aroma is light, grassy, leaves, flower and taste is lemon and mango sweetness with a hint of bitterness to the finish. Very good beer from a brewery that seems never to disappoint.

kajser27 (395) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 30, 2015
Yellow-pale golden, clear, medium strong white head. Aroma is of pale malt, floral grassy and citrus hops and some peppery notes. Taste is low to medium sweet malt, something peppery, herbal, lemongrass, bit citrus, low to medium bitterness. Dryish finish. Low to medium bodied and carbonation, thin.

Kita (1495) - Koper, SLOVENIA - JUN 18, 2015
Bottle, 0.50l. Clear golden color with medium soapy white head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma is mild fruity, herbal and almost non-existing. Taste starts with light sweet toasted malt, follows by refreshing fruity and grassy acidity, mouthfeel is dry, while finish is moderate bitter. Light to medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Quite a disahoppointment...

danielecamo (835) - ITALY - JUN 15, 2015
Alla spina. Colore dorato scarico, limpida, molto frizzante. Olfatto con frutta, erbaceo, poco intensi. al palato corpo watery, gasatura eccessiva e un oof-flavour di erba, vegetale, stucchevole.

skortila (4850) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUN 7, 2015
On tap @ Thornbridge brewery. 25cl sample. As well as a bottled 25cl sample @ home. Best on tap, probably more fresh. The aroma is light citric, bit grainy, has some fresh spice tones. Clear, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light bitter, light grainy sweetness, has citrus. Very easy drinking. Good, well brewed beer, but just a little boring.

Une très belle bière houblonnée et fruitée, super raffraîchissante et désaltérante.
