pivoveskotsku (201) - - OCT 19, 2012
Nice pale orange/golden colour, some white head, aroma of citrus and peach, taste more of the same, grapefruit, some orange, not bitter at all in the finish. Quite good, not spectacular. Needs more juice.

yellow/gold clear, with a small foam which lingers. Mango, papaya and citrus on the nose. to taste, its mellow, following up on light tropical fruits, it is crying for citrus to come through, but it just doesn’t hit the spot. good nonetheless.

nihtila (1468) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
19.11.2013. Hieman sitruksen ja humalan tuoksua, myös hunajaa? Maku aika samoilla linjoilla: hieman sitrusta ja humalan puraisua, jälkimaussa kuivaa humalaa ja ruohoisuutta. Aika suoraviivainen, mutta jotenkin kevyt alkutuntuma ja lopun bitteri eivät ole tasapainossa. Jälkimaku ei oikein miellytä.

zacgillbanks (2971) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle from BeerRitz, Leeds. Hazy golden coloured with a toffee and earthy flavour, bitter pine notes and a sweet floral fruity finish.

ElDesmadre (2135) - Mikołów, POLAND - FEB 2, 2015
Bottle. Lychee, gooseberry, citrus and elderflower aroma. Fantastic. Lots of residual sweetness against which the bitterness struggles for a few sips before the whole achieves the desired balance. Nonetheless a crisp beer. Very tasty.

alberti92 (151) - - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle from cellarbrations super store hami hill. Pours clear golden with a thin white head leaving some lacing. On the nose you get hints of citrus, stone fruits and grass. It's typical English style, low carbonation resulting in a very thin mouthful. It has a lingering bitter finish with lots of stone fruit notes. Quite a nice beer but It just feels and tastes a bit incomplete. If this had a bit more carbonation I think I would have enjoyed it more!

Gurthnar (2727) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle. Aroma hoppy, fruity, earthy. Light caramel. Clear golden to orange colour. Rather short lasting head. Taste is quite surprising with its up front hoppiness. Almost no balancing malt, which also results in a thin body. Fruity, zesty, earthy, moderate bitterness with a definite touch of sourness in the very beginning. Might just be a good beer in some way, but does not fit me at all.

Bottle at World’s End Brewpub 141214. Decent beer with a big hit of hops. Golden in colour with a good head.
