Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2015
500ml Bottle from Aldi, Chapel, Derbyshire. Pours light golden with white head that very quickly diminishes to nothing (Iíve had this beer from cask too and the head is far thicker and long-lasting). Aroma is slightly sweet, citrus, some pine. Taste opens fruits yet bitter with a long, refreshingly dry finish on a smooth palate. Good but better from cask.

MiP (15253) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle, 4.1%. Good grassy and refreshing hop aroma. Clear and shiny light golden colour. OK stable white head. The flavour is quite malty for the style. Has a good grassy hop note like the aroma. Chalky finish. Full-bodied for the style and the ABV.

Bamsen78 (5010) - SÝnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear light golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and hops, with some estery notes. Bitter, hoppy flavour with bready and estery touches. Rough and bready aftertaste. Drinkable, well-balanced, but nothing really impressive.

jamaty (1814) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Dorada clara no mucha espuma. Desaparece pronto. Aroma escaso, Ůigeramente citrico. Lupulada en boca, frutal. Seca, bastante seca. Tono extraŮo que no acaba de convencer, pero no esta mal.

Boa cerveja, mas não tem nada demais. A leffe blond é mais saborosa. Veio na assinatura mensal da Onbeer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cimbasso (709) - - OCT 17, 2014
Golden colour with lightly foaming white head. Slightly grassy aroma. The taste has a deep malt flavour and a good hoppiness with grassy and floral notes. Lacks the mouth-filling maltiness and long finish of some golden ales, but is highly drinkable. Nice label featuring Scafell Pike. If this means nothing to you, you donít know about Alfred Wainwright!

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2014
Hoppy ever so slightly caramel aroma. Very light honey appearance. Slight mist to it. Very hoppy taste on the back of the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
