MoritzF (9959) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - AUG 6, 2017
(bottle) Clear, deep golden to amber colour with a slightly off-white mid-sized frothy head. Fruity and delicately biscuity malty aroma with shades of toffee and a touch of floral and slightly woody hops. Mildly sweet and bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a soft, almost a bit tame carbonation. Slightly biscuity cara-malty taste with present fruity and slightly resiny and woody hoppy accents; balanced sweet-bitter finish with complex hoppy notes. Good. 01.VIII.17

WillemsUrenkel (1901) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2017
0,5 l bottle, 0,99 € at Lidl Germany. Pours out clear pale copper with a mighty frothy head. Looks really good. Restrained british hopy smell. Taste starts also british hopy. Dry malt, pleasant long lasting bitterness, less floral. Hints of citrus in the background. Really a nice shot. Never expected this at Lidl.

Jonb5 (550) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2017
A: Bronze, clear, not much of a head, what head there was, was tanned and didn’t hang around. S: Didn’t have an overly pronounced aroma, but some earthy Fuggles Hop was detectable. T: Tasted some earthy, slightly sour fruits which gave way to a lingering wheaty bitter finish. M: Medium body, moderate carbonation. O: Very much an English IPA.

nephirem (561) - CROATIA - JUN 8, 2017
Bottle, 0.5l. Clear copper pour, very visible carbonation. One finger off-white head, soapy, weak retention. Pleasant malty nose with good hoppiness in the background. Herbal and citrus notes, grainy. Medium body with surprisingly soft carbonation. Regular texture, a bit light but quite smooth. Moderately bitter taste with malty sweetness. Aroma quite nice, malty, slight caramel, a bit roasty. Lots of herbal notes, touch of honey, a bit grainy. Herbal liquor. Good hoppy background, a bit earthy, a bit citrus. Mildly bitter finish, medium lasting. Overall, quite tasty. Nicely balanced, fairly complex, refreshing and highly drinkable. Good brew.

Zlotta (3409) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - JUN 5, 2017
0.5 l bottle from local ’LIDL’, best before May 2018. Clear, deep amber with a medium large, frothy, almost stable, off-white head. Slightly sweetish, fruity-herbal, floral and slightly resiny aroma of tea leaves, citrus and some spruce. A bit sweetish, slightly bitter, fruity-herbal, grassy and floral taste of tea leaves, orange jam, grapefruit and some spruce, followed by a crisp, rather bitter, very dry, grassy and slightly resiny finish. Medium body, moderately effervescent mouthfeel, average to lively carbonation. Very decent stuff, a classic British Ale with a refreshing hoppy character and the typical dryness. I would have never expected such a beer in a German LIDL. Not sure if it’s a good sign or not though.
