Idiosynkrasie (7322) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2017
500ml bottle. Clear, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, slowly osteoporosing, minimally lacing, white head. Piney, hoppy aroma, hints of spruce, a touch of orange zest. Taste is bone dry, slightly piney and grassy, bitter hoppy, some spruce, a mineral touch. Stands clearly behind other excellent Crouch Vale Golden Ales.

500ml bottle bought at Queens Head in Chelmsford. Clear golden-brown body, remaining creamy white head. Solid lacing. Very nice looking in the glass. Mild aroma of ripe fruits. Flavoured with slightly roasted caramel and resinous hops. Dry bitter ending. Likable, easy to drink. Shared with Finn (Troms 24.04.2017).

Cunningham (7719) - Halden, NORWAY - SEP 3, 2015
Hazy amber color with a tan head. Very hoppy, malty and bready nose. Light sweet and an ok bitterness. Medium body. Unfortunately very flat. Citric hoppy, bready and fruity flavor. Flat carbonation destroyed this one.
[On tap at Peter Kavanaghs in Liverpool, England

yngwie (16990) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
Cask at the Wharf. A clear deep golden beer with some white bubbles on top. The aroma is on the fruity side, weak but pleasant. Pine cones, resins and a touch of malts. Its dry and soft on the palate, quite bitter, with pine cones, grapefruit and some resins. Low on malts. Lasting mostly hoppy finish. Easy drinkable but rather dull. 150301

NosirIwont (2492) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
Cask @ The Wharf, Aalborg. Pours golden with a small, diminishing white head. Decent lacing. Sweet, floral hop aroma, a bit spicy. Flavour is sweet with spicy hops, a hint of grain, and faint hint of plastic. Dry, bitter hop finish. Overall good; a decent, well-made beer without a lot of fuss. 28.02.15.

Desverger (10888) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2015
[email protected] Bar, CPH - golden pour with healthy white head. Aroma and taste is fruity and grassy hoppy, with some lovely orange and lemony accents, slightly floral, clean and fresh on the palate, in such great condition, so easy drinking, could drink loads of this. Lovely stuff!

JohnRMurdoch (4796) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - AUG 14, 2013
Cask @ The State bar. Dark golden amber, good head. Resin grain aroma. Biscuit grain f& mid lemon flavour. A bit bland and watery with slightly bitter aftertaste. Had better from Crouch Vale. I was really looking forward to this one but was disappointed.
