DraftDodger (1660) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 5, 2015
Copenhagen 5/11 2015. 50 cl bottle from Meny. Happy golfer on the label swinging away. Pours copper brown with small white head which evaporates pretty fast. Aroma is pretty neutral. Some caramel sweetness. A little skunky. Suprisingly strong carbonation and watery palate. Taste is caramel sweet and well balanced by bitterness. Aftertaste is short and sweetish. Not bad - but not particulary interesting either. Just like golf.

Giochaurand (533) - FINLAND - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle. Pours clear amber chestnut with low white head. Aroma is malts, biscuit and caramel. Taste is malty, nutty and abit of bread. Nice, but the palate could have been much better.

LasseVPedersen (437) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2015
Bottle, 50cl. Pours almost clear amberred colour with a stable, off-white head. Hoppy, floral, fruity aroma. Buttery malty of biscuits flavour with some caramel, fruits and hops. Smooth, nice balanced mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Ends slight woody with grass in semi bitter, dry finish. Quite nicely.

Inviting great ale with a foam that is quickly vanishing. Easy bubbly carbonation. It has a soft and subtle aromas of flowers and malt, and the taste is also characterized most of malt like the subtle hint of flower. Hop bitterness is modest but present a pleasant balanced shape. The finish is mediocre. I do not think it differs moreover from many other ale. Reminiscent in many ways the usual English ales. This does not mean it’s boring. I could, for instance. well buy it again to a summer night where the menu is on the barbecue.

Florya (2027) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015

chinchill (5226) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2015
500 ml bottle purchased in St. Andrews and consumed in nearby Largoward. Great looking ale, with an exceptionally clear red-brown body. The head is not large but has durability and leaves streaks of sticky lacing. This is hoppy for style. There’s a suggestion of this in the aroma, but it becomes most apparent from mid-taste on. Good interplay of hops and malts, with the balance seeming to changes from the from to the aftertaste as well as with warming. Medium body with crisp carbonation. O: more stimulating than watching golf.

Calisky (3029) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAR 31, 2015
Couleur ambrée, très légère mousse. Nez houblonné herbeux avec légères notes de caramel .Gout un peu lactique avec houblon herbeux, caramel doux et bonne amertume. Bon corps. Vraiment pas mal.

fellebag (1547) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2015
50cl bottle. Small white head. Brown color, a bit hazy. Aroma is wood, caramel, leaves, malt. Taste is sweet with wood.

Cunningham (8282) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2015
Lovely clear copper color with a fine off white head. Ok lacing. Hoppy aroma, with light fruity notes. Moderate caramel, mild bready and hoppy flavor with some fruitiness coming through.
[Bottle from Meny Begby in Fredrikstad, Norway]

jdjuice (500) - Kumamoto, JAPAN - JAN 23, 2015
Pours pretty amber with lacy white head. Aroma is doughy, yeasty, maybe a little skunky. Mouthfeel is pleasantly refreshing, nice weight with good carbonation. Flavors are doughy, buttery, sweet, with a subtle hop bite on the early finish that makes this a bit more interesting than I anticipated.
