Very attractive almost continental pilsner nose this pours a reasonablt htick velevety head on top of a a light relatively hazy yelliw body. Positive fine beading sustains that nice head leaving rings of delicate lacing with every sip. Slight carbonic quality but never burpy. Refreshing quenching taste which is lemony and zesty with a resonably long gentle chewy bitterness at the end. Rewards patience.

This is a great beer. What a surprise, good times indeed. Why? The flavours don’t stay with you long, there’s not much to smell, it looks good, but it’s the taste. Totally refreshing, and has a certain lovely sweetness to it. The hops are lurking in the background and there’s floral something there, but it’s the sweetness that is spot on. Really nice. Oh yeah, Quadrant 6 was by Dom and Optical, I never knew, makes sense though. Link coming through.

flying_pig (1419) - SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle (500ml):
Light and clear looking golden amber with a thin, bubbly white head that is about half a centimetre tall and has decent retention before turning to a thin lacing.
Hops and floral note are present, along with some lighter malts and a vague smell of berrues coming through. There is quite a sweet aroma with some citrus and possibly some lychee as well. It is quite a light smelling beer though.
Sweet malts and a definite floral note to start as well as some lighter hops and a background fruit taste. There is a moderate, earthy bitterness to th ebeer to round things off with too.
Smooth to taste and with a medium body and a mild citrus tang to it. There is again a light bitter finish to this one.

A nice pale ale that has some good fruity notes and a pleasant, malty base to it. The beer is quite drinkable and goes down very easily. It would make a good session beer.

Another one from the brewer that just lacks a bit. Im not downing it too much as its a perfectly sessionable beer. just wish it had that extra punch to make it really good.

EithCubes (5616) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle by DEC 2012. Nose is pretty modest, some light pale malt. Pours a dull clear orange with a rocky bright white head. Taste is sticky and malty, full-bodied with some layers but not really fat; low bitterness and sweetness comes in a tick higher. There’s a gentle herbal/medicinal quality to the aftertaste that reminds of heather and gruit. I found some measure of contentment here.

From the bottle. Golden yellow, clear, lots of a white head, malt, fruit, some hops. Fairly refreshing and rather clean. A decent summer brew.

Bottle. Sweet thirst quenching ale. Nothing exciting but does the job on a sunny day.
