Rune (8047) - Tromsř, - JUL 22, 2010
500ml bottle from Beer Ritz, bb.17.10.2010. Slightly unclear, golden body topped by a white layer. Fragile lacing to the glassware. Aroma of lightly spiced hoppy fruits. Sappy, semi-sweet citrus fruits in flavour. Yeasty hints behind. Smooth dry bitter ending. Foamy mouth feel. Medium to full bodied. A pleasure to drink (flat at Bodington Hall, University of Leeds, 14.07.2010).

SzopPiwosz (143) - - SEP 10, 2014
Wrocław IVFDP: Piana: Biała, drobno- i średniopęcherzykowa. Niezbyt obfita. Kolor: Jasnozłote, klarowne. Zapach: Intensywny, owoce tropikalne, świeży, rześki. Na czele mango i papaja. Nuty drożdżowe. Smak: Spora, wyrazista ciasteczkowa słodycz. Tekstura: Gładkie, nie pozostawia uczucia ściągania. Lekko rozgrzewający alkohol. Nasycenie: Średnie. Goryczka: Średnio-wysoka, mocno skontrowana. Pijalność: Wysoka. To piwo było słusznie chwalone. Zaskakującym elementem była jasność piwa zarówno w sensie koloru jak i panelu smaków. Goryczka okazała się konkretna, ale zdominowana słodyczą. Bardzo dobre.

Marko (3933) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 25, 2014
And yet again, huge thanks to Mario from Dva Tona for the superb tasting!
This one concluded the golden Chinookey APA/IPA/IIPA trinity from Thornbridge. Obviously, golden with a medium sized, long lasting white head. Heavy aroma, malty with notes of lemon rock candy, nice & balanced. Creamy, fuller earthy-lemony-soapy taste, smooooooth malty background, tasty. The bitterness shows up remarkably late, and is never too strong. Nothing too fancy overall, but damn this is pleasant.

MoritzF (8493) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 19, 2014
(bottle) Hazy, pale golden colour with a medium-sized and slightly off-white foamy head. Fruit-accented hoppy aroma with notes of citrus, grapefruit, oranges, as well as a slightly piney and herbal touch. Moderately bitter and slightly sweet flavour, medium bodied with a modest carbonation. Soft but still hearty malty base with present fruity hoppy accents, accompanied by notes of pine and spruce; balanced bitter-sweet mildly malty and pronounced fruity and piney hoppy finish. Pleasant. 13.VIII.14

Ferris (4197) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 14, 2014
Draft - Earthy skunky hops with grassy notes. Clear gold with a hood white head. Earth bitterness and some sweetness. Very flavorless, light orange and pithy.

Douberd (2292) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
(Thornbridge Halcyon) Bottle 500 ml at home, poured into a big tulip. ABV 7.4% Golden orange colour on the body, bright and sunny, with a tall slightly off-white head sitting on top. Quite thick, first half is collapsing fast but the remaining half has a very good retention. Hevy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, lots of pine too, very hoppy. Great taste, lots of citrus, grapefruit, again very pine-y, a bit of resin, floral notes as well, fresh grass, melon. Nicely bitter on the aftertaste. Medium thin body, good lively carbonation, very dry on the palate. Great beer, I could drink it every day
