Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 24, 2009
Pale and nicely lively. Looks like a good ’un. Nice lemony hops on the nose, crisp and slightly sweet malts in there too. Slightly green with tingly cereals. In the mouth a big wholesome cereal flavour quickly gives way to nice drying hops and a light maltiness. Leaves the tongue very dry but with a really tasty aftertaste of dusty straw and pine needles. A light carbonation and body make this quite drinkable. I wish it didn’t dry the tongue quite so much.

RichardW (1461) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle Conditioned: Pale gold, with a thin white head. Very refreshing zesty flavour, loads of dry hoppiness, with a lemony aftertaste, with a touch of creaminess and quite a floral scent towards the end.

Quack-Duck (7777) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 1, 2009
bottle from Tuckers Maltings. Clear golden yellow, large white head. Citrusy-hoppy nose. Light-bodied, shy malty base with citrus-hoppy flavours and hints of coffe and roasetd malts.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2008
Bottle @ Beer Exposed, September 2008.
Pours a clear, lightly pale golden with a small, white film head. Aroma is hoppy, some pine and a bit citric. A bit flat mouthfeel. Flavour is lightly hoppy, weak malty sweetness. Not impressive.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2008
Clear, golden body. No head at all. Shades of fruity-hops in aroma. Flavoured by mild and sweet grapefruit offset by bitter notes towards the finish. Oily texture (Third pint, hand-pulled cask at GBBF, 09.08.2008)

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2008
Bottle, Barleycorns, Nantwich. A really pleasant surprise this one. Hazy orangey colour with a white head. Citrus,grassy, hop aroma. Really liked the cascade hop present here. Great balance of fruit and hop with a superbly bitter finish. This is seriously under rated on here. A cracking brew.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2008
Light amber colour, small quickly fading white head. Smells of blokes changing rooms, sweaty socks. A little metal in there, grapefruit, slighty bitter and a bit too watery in the texture for me.

Light unclear light yellow color with a small, fizzy - frothy, virtually none lancing, fully diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, light to moderate hoppy, flowers, buttery. Flavor is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter with a average duration. Body is medium to light, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. (170508)

Maria (10129) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Light-golden with fruit and citrus in the aroma. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of fruit, citrus and hints of caramel, and the finish is dry. It’s quenching and uncomplicated, ideal for a session beer!

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2008
Bottle. Golden with a small white head. Fruity aroma with hops, including an apricot note. Dry and malty flavour with a touch of apricot.
