Veeery disapppointing. It’s like a nice IPA watered one to one. The hops are noticeable but they don’t save the beer this time

Grzesiek79 (3305) - Radom, POLAND - SEP 30, 2014
Dobra hybryda. Niesamowicie pachnie trawiastym i cytrynowym chmielewm. W smaku cierpkosc i lekka kwaskowosc limonki i cytryny, nieco ananasa. Wytrawne i goryczkowe. Wiecej tu IPA niz lagera. Odfermentowanie doskonale. bo zero slodyczy. piana niewielka, ale troche daje znac na szklanicy o sobie. leciutkie zmetnienie. Kolor jasny cytrynkowy

Keg @ Southern, Edinburgh. Pale blond colour, white foam. Medium carbonation. Hoppy and fruity nose, easy drinkable. Good lager.

fordest (2010) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 9, 2014
I tap at The Washbar In Edinburgh. Pale yellow with not a lot of head. Pretty fizzy. Aromas were hoppy. Flavor was too. Better than all the uk bitters I have had lately. It wasn’t amazing but it was a good change.

chimpgibbon (329) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Keg. Pale yellow average head. Grass, lemon, stale fart and light malt. Dry lemony sherbet. Hints of lager but a refreshing fragrant bitterness coming through. Well balanced effort and very drinkable- especially when the other choice in this pub is beer hell.

SlackerMads (1701) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle, best before 06/2015. Clear yellow with a medium sized diminishing white head. Sulphur, grass, hay, stale farts (or is it me?), white bread, citrus. That one was me. Light/medium body, little sweetness, light/medium bitter with a long finish, airy and soft texture. Whatever hybrid this is, the end result is kind of an ok golden ale.

ElDesmadre (1716) - Mikołów, POLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Lots of green notes - grass, lime and gooseberry, also a slight amount of lychee. Also some biscuit notes and sulfur. And cat piss. Hmm... This cat piss is what seems to be most strong in the flavour. Additionally, this beer is dry, watery, lacking substance, with a not too strong but annoyingly rough bitterness. Not good.

Melkart (316) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - AUG 12, 2014
It begins like a normal pilsen, but with more body. Then comes the hop bitterness at the end. Balanced.
