Grumbo (5389) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2018
6/6/2018. Draught at Arch 2, Ouseburn, Newcastle. Pours cloudy yellow gold with a small just off-white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, hops, vanilla, light herb and grass. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Quite full bodied, sticky texture, average to soft carbonation. Lemony dry bitterness to finish. Very good. jinroh (2781) - ESTONIA - JUN 6, 2018
Tap at Bishops Arms, Linnegatan. Pours hazy yellow, not much foam. Nose is quite faint, light tropical fruits, bit of lupulin dust. Taste has more juice and tropics, bitterness also there but in a quite balanced way. Smooth and well balanced, tasty and quenches my thirst - works great as the first beer of a day.

Growler fill from Beerhive. Pours very hazed yellow, thin lacy head. Soft cereal and dank mushroom aroma with pineapple cubes. The taste is initially sweet tropical fruit, then dry oatiness. Quite soft, perhaps a little undercarbonated. Nice, but needs another layer to be really good. Stuu666 (16483) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 20, 2018

Keg @ Ramble + Rose, Hebden Bridge. Fully hazed amber with a small head. Has a light, crisp, sweet tropical fruitiness, which is evident in both aroma and taste.

Keg at The Pint Shop, Oxford. In town for a Phobophobes gig at The Cellar, Thursday 22nd March 2018 Murky yellow colour, really hazy. Wow I love this, nice sweetness, juicy, fruity, nice tropical fruit salad tang and a bitterness that has a softened edge, really like this.

Tap at the Junkyard Nottingham. Pours murky orange brown with halo of lace. Aroma is herbal resinous hops which can produce interesting fruit/vegetable effects in the mouth. Taste is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and an aftertaste rather than a finish sour mainly like salad . So a puzzle in that it is not unpleasant but it left me with the unnerving thought that it might taste much the same on regurgitation. FatPhil (17748) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2018 Draught (Angleterre, Helsinki) (6-:4:6+:4:13=3.3)
Sweet aroma, fruity, "eww"- sickly tinned fruit, pineapple in syrup. Nice bitterness in the mouth. Gentle malts. Great drinkability. Even after it's warmed a little, still no booze to it, and a good drinker. Decent strong IPA once you're past the sickliness of the aroma.

Same night as the Draught sample. Yeah, not as good. More evidence kegs suck.
Rerate: Tap (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) (6-:4:5:3:11=2.9-)
Really quite interesting hoppy aroma, spicy, until you start detecting the celery, and a hint of pulse. Fashionably cloudy, pale, decently persistent spongy off-white head. Flattish smooth palate, carbonation seems forced. Remarkably bland taste, floury, starchy, more adjunct than malt, worse, the legumes are back in force. Or was that a root vegetable? Some herbal bitterness in the finish, with quite a long biting tingle. Alcohol is covered, so I guess this is good for getting the boost on if you want beers without having to taste any barley. Begrudging bonus point for that.
