BlackHaddock (6629) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 25, 2012
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle: best before 16 Sept 2012, poured into three pilsner glasses on 10 March 2012. Yellowy orange body of well carbonated beer: on top sat large heads of white bubbles which left some good lacing as the beer levels dropped. Smells of citrus hops, metal mops and fresh yeast. Tastes of fizzy citrus hops, rusting metal mops and old yeast. The alcohol is well hidden, but overall this isn’t a well balanced brew in my eyes: different certainly, but not really interesting or compelling enough to have another bottle.

AirForceHops (6570) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2012
Draft @ Novare Res. Pale yellow color with thick full head, good retention in the Tulip. Light malty nose. Flavor is mild yeast providing a light fruit. I also get a light grain. Lighter in body with a short finish. Very plain and simple. Drinkable but I wasn’t craving another glass.

Clear dark blond colour. Flavour has sweet stale malts. Much too sweet and has a metallic finish.

jaghana (5700) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle 75cl @Auchan, a clear copper beer with medium head. Nose is on fruits, sugar and spices. Aroma is sweet, medium malty, currant fruit notes, peppery hops, bit too sweet. Quite basic.

erickok (5628) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUN 4, 2013
Golden body, clear. Little aroma, light malty, cereal and clean yeast. Light bitter, simple accessible taste, very short aftertaste. Well enough made but too boring for me. As expected. (75cl bottle from Auchan)

minutemat (4751) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2015
75cl bottle all to myself, present from my Belgian father-in-law. Pours gold with medium fluffy white head. Taste is fairly basic but a pleasant table beer with a nice strength.

RichardGretton (4694) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2006
Bottle. Pale golden beer with a weak grassy aroma and a yeasty and weak flavour. Overall quite a poor beer for the style.

Bottled: Quite sourly aroma, notes of champagne. Flavor is grainy and fruity, light winey. Interesting.
