EithCubes (5137) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2012
Bottle by DEC 2012. Nose is sweet and hoppy, body a dull pale orange with a rocky/lacing white head. Watery light body with light hops and a little to sift through, plain light caramel with little sweetness and bitterness, but we’re more into golden/pale malt territory here. A good ’worker’s beer’. Clean and decent.

pivoveskotsku (201) - SCOTLAND - JUL 6, 2012
Pale golden colour, fairly fizzy, white head. Floral hops and some sweetness, taste is a touch hoppy and some bitterness. Very sessionable, very summery. A good one.

ElDesmadre (1856) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Golden with almost no head. Fresh, hoppy aroma - floral, resiny and citrusy, with some subtle malt and strawberries underneath. Medium carbonation, light body. Taste is light malty-fruity sweetish, dominated by noble hops, ending with a medium bitterness. Pretty straightforward, sessionable summer brew. Good one.

MalcolmTucker (769) - SCOTLAND - JAN 27, 2012

AshtonMcCobb (3260) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle in 1780 Restaurant. Pours blonde with a small head. The nose has honey, lemon and hay. The taste has hay and honey with a muesli note on the end. The palate is light to medium in structure and texture with a dry finish. Overall, they can brew a lot better than this, I think.
