ladnewton (2039) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2017
Cask at CBC, Covent Garden on 28th October 2017. Clear gold with shallow white foam and full lacing. Inviting grassy hop aroma. Rich and intense hoppiness in-mouth with grass, citrus and nuttiness- peanut. Grassy bitterness dominates the finish. Zingy mouthfeel and a medium body. Superb.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2017 On Cask (yes Cask) at The Plough Inn Wreay. Lovely tasty low alcohol beer served properly and with the lovely creaminess that keg beer doesn’t give you. It’s pale and the head clings to the glass until it’s empty and the NZ hops make it more interesting than most of the offerings from the larger brewers

jjsint (3493) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 25, 2017
Keg tap at the Beer Hall, Staveley. Light yellow, almost clear, with a small loose white head. Intense white grape aroma with vinous and grassy notes. Taste is a light yet tenacious bitter, slightly increasing in bitterness to the long hop-led finish. Body's really watery; even the heavy carbonation can't hide this. Refreshing low-ABV pale ale with less character than its bigger cousins, but that's to be expected.

olsvammel (7289) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2017
Can from Bottl3.5hop in Stockholm. Hoppy smell with grass, citrus and grapefruit. Strong bitterness. Light body. The bitterness overpowers the hop aroma, could use more sweetness to balance the bitterness. Nice and drinkable though.

Gulbrun klar med fingerh�yt hvitt skum. Lukter gj�r, korn og noe tropiske frukter. Lett. Middels bitter. Sitrusskall, savner s�dmen fra tropiske fruktene som l� i lukten. Middels lang.

zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2017
Can from Hawkshead Brewery. Very pale hazy straw-white coloured with a thick white head of foam. It has a sharp citrus and tropical fruit flavour followed by malt notes and grapefruit on the bitter finish. Excellent for the low ABV.
