oh6gdx (23182) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 6, 2010
Bottled (from bierzwerg.de). Slightly hazy yellowish golden colour with a foamy white head that leaves some slight lace. Aroma is bready and caramelly malts along with quite big fruity and floral hoppyness. Flavour is much the same along with some mild notes of honey as well as grass and wood in the finish. Pleasant sessionESB.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2010 Bottle from Tesco. Aroma of oats, tropical fruits & corn. Slightly cloudy light golden brown colour. Dry bitter hoppy apricot peach flavour. Lively carbonation. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Another good bottled ale from Williams Brothers.

sound67 (570) - Offenbach, GERMANY - DEC 20, 2009
50cl bottle, as pictured. Pours a clear yellow golden with a small, offwhite head. No lacing. Fruity aroma of peach, yeast and lemon. Medium-bodied blonde ale (not a bitter nor esb) with a surprisingly crisp, thick mouth feel. Medium carbonation. Peach is very noticeable as a fruit flavor in this beer, but healthy, citrusy hops and a strong note of malt keep things from getting too sweet. Oaky middle and finish, with a lingering dry, hoppy after taste. A very agreeable beer from the Williams Brothers, much more likeable than the same company’s not-dissimilar "Joker". Very well balanced between fruity sweetness and hoppy freshness, eminently drinkable. Lovers of English IPA will find much to like here, too.

Embrouille (2831) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 30, 2009
Bottled 50cl. I am guessing this beer has been brewed with Cascade hops. The nose is similar to Joker IPA (with some flaws, reminiscence of a berliner weisse). But definetely much more pleasant and inviting. Great hop profile. Plenty of character. Reminiscence of juniper berries and elderflower in the taste. Decent bitterness. Medium bodied. Dryish finish. Interesting.
