coil (412) - Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2019
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2019 500ml bottle. Light amber colour with white head. Pale malt, tangerine, citrus, bready, grassy, light green apple, weird light herbal, weird light medicinal, weird light chlorine, orange peel, light grassy hop finish. Solid

bdleedahl (1488) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 13, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2019 The bitterness is a little rustic and barnyard-like. Not the most pleasant aroma. Decent, not one to keep coming back to. D&S Dresden

NeverBinge (325) - Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 28, 2018
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2018 Amber and slightly cloudy, with very little head. The aroma is pretty powerful: deep and sweet and malty, with notes of red apple and whiskey, along with a hint of brown bread. Bitterness is (just about) assertive enough, lingering nicely in the finish and aftertaste. There is also a neat little dry edge to the flavour. All in all, this beer could be close to fantastic and I'm hard pushed to tell what's missing and why I'm not uber-excited - probably something to do with overall balance. But it's not a huge gripe and I would certainly buy this one again.

sparta (1197) - Pärnu, ESTONIA - OCT 23, 2018
UPDATED: OCT 23, 2018 Õlle on selline jook, et iga uus kord kui klaasi või pudeli suule tõstad, siis leiad midagi uut, sõltuvalt tuhandest-miljonist pisiasjast, mis hetke olukorda mõjutavad. Seega piirdun iga õlle juures selle tekstiga.

Mister_Li (2339) - Heilbronn, GERMANY - JUN 2, 2018
Klares Bernstein mit durchschnittlicher Schaumkrone. Malzig, etwas Karamell, keksig, nussig, leicht fruchtig, sehr süffig.

madquacker (1189) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2018
Copper colour with an astringent lifting malt under base. Maybe a little to acidic for me but very well made.

Grumbo (7811) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2017

Davros IX (885) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2017
2016 catch up - A good strong bitter. Very nice and actually quite refreshing. A good bitterness of hops and a nice strength from the alcohol.

allmyvinyl (12278) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2017
500ml bottle from M&S, the Gyle. Pours clear yellow gold with a thin white head. Aromas of light citrus, pale malt, faint spice. Taste is more citrus and light sweet malt. Gets a bit buttery down the glass.
