maeib (8751) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
Bottled 28/06/14. A golden coloured beer with a whitish head. A reasonable golden ale type beer. Hoppy notes to tend towards the grassy though. There is good malt balance and a little spicey bite. lacking citrus. Drinkable but nothing special.

Bottle, thanks to Colin. Clear pale golden beer with a rich white head. Fruity aroma, grassy, grape, peach, red apples. Hoppy fruity flavor, grassy, a bit artificial. Slightly thin bodied.

yngwie (17185) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. A dense, creamy, off-white head of two-fingers size forms over a clear golden body. Some floaties, and nice curtains. The aroma is pretty weak, with citrusy hops and a touch of grass and pine cones. The flavor has some bitterness, but not enough I think. Grass, pine cones, pineapple and some citrus notes. Canned fruits. Malts as well. Medium to full body with too much carbonation. Short hoppy finish. Not bad, but far from interesting. 140418

Bottle - incredibly lively, huge 4 inch head even after very careful pouring. Visibly highly carbonated. Hazy gold with white head, prone to lacing. Big citrus hoppy aroma, oranges, peaches. Same for the taste, plus malts, candy, tropical fruit. Nice texture. Impressive.
