Nice foamy pour. Cloudy yellow qppearance. Hop aroma is citrus. Begins malty, then Bitter grapefruit taste kicks in. Other fruit lurking in background. Hard carbonation. Fresh and drinkable. Refreshes. Lace remains in glass. Thanks for sharing, Radek.

Bottled: Amber coloured. Dark beige head. Aroma is floral and malty. Flavour is flowery, hoppy, malty and sweet. Has some fruity notes. Is light malty with a touch of bitterness in the end. I like this one.

rosenbergh (11435) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 30, 2014
Draught at the Old Dominion Bar at the Dulles Airport. Clear amber colour with a tiny white head. Sweetish hops, mild bitterness and caramel malt in the aroma. The flavour is quite nice and balanced with moderate bitterness, woody dryness, floral and piney hops and caramel malt. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (11018) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 1, 2002
This pale ale rocks. A lovely amber hue. The aroma is of roasted malt. The flavor is malty, nutty and especially hoppy. The hops definitely win out overall (hopheads take note). The finish is fizzy, crisp, clean and dry. Just bitter enough to satisfy a hophead on an off day. A great Summer beer for the rest of us.

DocLock (10562) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2009
Draft. Pours copper with nose of hopcitrus, lemongrassy, caramel malt, with a medium palate and flavor of pretty heavy hops, a bit of fruit, and a solid malt bill. Very good, very hoppy, very crisp, and very assertive. Well done.

Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a smalloff white head. The aroma and flavor have pale malts, toasted malts, leafy hops, average minus.

MartinT (9765) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2005
The Lure:
Well-trained caramel and butterscotch malts lift the resinous, grapefruit hops high above their bulging arms. Screams "Come and get me".

The Festivities:
Resinous, wooden hop bitterness proliferate on the full caramel/butterscotch soil. Oranges fall to the sweetness and marry both allegiances.

Transcendence:
A boiling mind taking a break.

On tap in Reagan Airport. Amber coloured beer. Aroma is lightly malty. A bit of herbal/toasty sweetness. Fairly generic though with not a whole lot of character. Low bitterness, kind of herbal. Meh.
