pivoveskotsku (201) - - SEP 21, 2012
Light pale yellow lager colour, slightly grassy aroma and quite hoppy. Taste is very much like a grassy lager which has been hopped. The "hybrid" label is a tiny bit misleading as it’s essentially just a hoppy lager. That said, I think it is very tasty and I very much enjoyed it. Brilliant name, too!

Borresteijn (4677) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2014
50cl Bottle, tfs R&J! Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma is floral, medium sweet, light hoppy, citrus, malts. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, light grainy, floral, citrus, hint of grapefruit, grass, decent bitter finish, a bit soapy. Light-bodied. OK stuff.

fordest (1994) - 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 (308) - 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 (1606) - 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 (1553) - 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 (296) - 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.

Bottle received as a gift. Pours middling gold colour, thin white head. Strong hoppy hit in flavours which is pretty enjoyable.

Mr_Pink_152 (705) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2014
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. Very pale beer with a small white head. Aroma of lemon and hops. Taste is strong malts and sharp bitterness from the hops.

McWorta (591) - LUXEMBOURG - JUN 22, 2014
Golden crystall clear coloured with a medium fading white head. On the nose subtle fruity aromas of light rasberry, light black currant and some hay develop. The tase is lightly sweet rounded with some bitterness. The texture is rather soft with a light liveliness. Medium bodied the beer offers a medium lightly fruity finish in which the bitterness holds its momentum.

doradobotella (101) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: Color dorado tranlucido con una capa de espuma blanca y muy duradera. Aroma: Muy lupulado, donde predominan básicamente notas cítricas y florales. Sabor: Muy equilibrado pero con un predominio de un amargor superior al usual en una Lager.
