jaghana (4124) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 4, 2012
bottle 50cl, a clear golden beer with low head. Nose is a bit sourish like with ginger notes. Aroma is ginger like too with some over-riped fruit notes, body is more lemony than malty, a bit disappointing.

Scopey (7375) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2011
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. It pours straw yellow, with a decent white head. The nose is dough, floral and green vegetables. The taste is oat, dough, floral, lemon, straw, cardboard and metal, with not much in the finish. Light to medium body, average carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. So-so.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2011
Bottle from Peckham’s. Pours a light golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of mead, elderflower, pepper, grassy hops and William’s house yeast. Flavours similar with a little musty honey to finish. Not as sweet as other Williams beers, a little dry and only very mildly bitter. Moderate carbonation with a honey finish and a foamy mouth-feel. A little CO2 prickle. OK.

BoBoChamp (5759) - Gent, BELGIUM - SEP 12, 2011
50cl, Scottish brew, with elderflowers and meadowsweet, from Bierzwerg Greven, not complex brew, malty/floral and slightly spicy, not balanced, clear, small head, nothing special

mile (3118) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2011
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small and fully diminishing head. Light moderate malty and lightly sweetish aroma, fruitiness, some citrus hoppyness and some herbal spiciness. Body is light to medium, malty and lightly sweetish flavor, herbal spiciness and some citrus with caramel. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, herbal spiciness and light caramel. Herbal spiciness just no not work with this golden ale.

lusikka (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2011
500 ml bottle @ Ruby & Fellas, Tampere.
Pours a hazy yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of grassy hops, sweet malts and weird tooth paste. Flavour grassy hops, flowers, sweet malts, some citrus and toffee with hay. Medium bodied, smooth bodied and a finish of citrus and sweet fruits. Some bitterness. Overall a smooth brew with high drinkability but nothing special.

BenH (2493) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2011
Didn’t particularly enjoy this one. Some elderflower on the nose. Taste is quite negative, metallic lager flavor with elderflower. Slightly oily texture. Bad times

grapefruitmoon (22) - SCOTLAND - JUL 3, 2011
Golden ale with tight white head when poured. Tangy flavour, not much aroma. Has a definite zing to it, zesty with fruity sweetness.
