minihame2 (493) - Oulu, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2016
Clear, yellow colour and some white lacing. Fruity aroma, mango, citrus fruit, some hops. Taste has mild bitterness, finish is quite hoppy and dry. Smooth mouthfeel, medium carbonation, medium body. It’s quite fruity but besides that not very exciting, needs more hops.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2016
(Draught at Craft & Draft, Amsterdam, 16 Sep 2016, as "Bear State") Golden amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit, orange peel and a touch of resin. Malty, fruity taste with citrus, orange marmalade, grapefruit, resin and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made IPA with a generous hop presence. Very nice.

imdownthepub (13391) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2016
Bottled, 500ml from The Coach House Stores and Post Office, Castleton, Derbys. Hazed gold with white head. There is a slightly fuller malty character to this, crisp, biscuity the a touch hay like. The hops come through with a citrus punch, zesty, bittering, juicy. Really decent.

fhoublon (461) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 20, 2016
Bouteille de 500 ml dégustée le 22 juin 2016 au Pub Pit Caribou de Montréal au coût de $10. Bière blonde dorée voilée. Assez effervescente, bulles moyennes, avec un col mince off-white assez persistant. Légère odeur d’agrumes (clémentines) et de caramel. Saveur légère d’agrumes, de malt sucré. Amertume pas très intense pour le style. (Note: Bière non filtrée ni pasteurisée, bouteille meilleure avant le 24 novembre 2016).

mice (818) - FINLAND - JUL 23, 2016
Kirkas, kullankeltainen olut kivalla kestävällä sentin tiiviillä ja pienikuplaisella vaahtokerroksella, joka jättää myös pitsiä. Tuoksu eksoottisen hedelmäinen, sitruksinen, mutta myös makean maltainen ja karamellinen. Maku eksoottisen hedelmäinen, havuinen ja maltaisen makea. Loppupuolella katkerampaa greippistä otetta. Melko täyteläinen runko, kuiva ja katkera jälkimaku. Lopussa havuisuutta ja pihkaa kivasti. Tässä on oikeastaan yllättävän hyvä liitto makeampaa karamellisuutta ja katkeraa pihkaista havuisuutta.
