Calisky (558) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 8, 2014
Couleur jaune, pas de mousse. Nez de houblon floral. Gout de houblon leger et agrumes, petite amertume, assez longue en bouche. Presque a la date limite de conso, peux etre pour cela qu’elle est moyenne??

Ipa molto inglese, abbastanza maltata e con una luppolatura leggera e dolcemente agrumata, amaro poco persistente. Piacevole e beverina.

oh6gdx (20272) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 24, 2014
Bottled@Public Corner, Vaasa. Much to my surprise, Public Corner in Vaasa has stepped up their selection again. Amber colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is floral, mild fruits with some resin and mild pleasant malty sweetness to it as well. Flavour is rather imilar, and it turns out this was a rather nicely balanced mellow IPA, more of the UK style, than the US.

Beese (1540) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle at the Doric Arms, Edinburgh on 16 May. Poured a hazy mid-golden, with a thin layer of white head. Aroma was malt heavy, with tinned fruit and some citrus hops in the mix. Grapefruit flavours and other tropical fruit, with dry cereal. Finish was sweet malt, bread and raisins.
