sarauckelman (464) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2016
Clear amber with no head. Not much aroma except for a bit of musty barnyard hay at the end. Starts off tasting like a normal beer and then suddenly turns soapy and musty and with a very short mouthfeel -- all of a sudden you cant feel it any more but you can still taste it (mostly hops). Oily body.

BeerViking (4403) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2016
Bottle from the Co-op, pours orange-brown with almost no head and light aromas of caramelised citrus, floral perfume and a little earth. Slightly metallic bitterness overpowers a biscuity malt body. Distant lemon and spice notes.

wheresthepath (2208) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle that Dad shared- cheers! Hazy yellow-gold with a thin white head and a light fizz. Straw up front with light sweet peach and some bready malts behind. Mildly bitter and dry finish. Pleasantly drinkable.

gyllenbock (8247) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2016
Bottle, thanks Wolff. Hazy light orange with a white head. Soft and easy to drink with grass, citrus and some hints of perfume. Also some bread and caramel. The finish was bitter.

I_LUV_BEER (223) - - MAY 27, 2016
Served in a tulip from a 500ml bottle. Pours hazy gold colour with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, hops and grass. Taste is following the nose very closely - citrus, hops and some grassy notes. Medium body with soft carbonation and a pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste. Nicely balanced and smooth, would consume it as a session ale any time.

Pours golden, slightly hazy, a bit of particulate matter in suspension. Aroma is hard to identify, a bit vegetal, and some orange peel? Rather oily body. Meh.

imdownthepub (13715) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2016
Cask conditioned at Spooners Bar, Porthmadog, Gwynned, Wales. Gold with white head. This is quite a light, malty beer,fruity sweet, thinnish palate. It is simple, perhaps a light biscuit note. Its okay.

Cimbasso (841) - - JUN 6, 2016
From a bottle. Pours a hazy orange gold with very soft carbonation. Malt, peach and grass in the aroma, and also in the taste. Nice grassy bitterness, and a long, bitter finish. A tasty golden ale.
