Brandman (2950) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 5, 2012
Hazy copperish body, white head. Aroma has fruity hops and yeast, harsh fruits?, tight maltiness, very dry and bitter, bit plastic, but overall good beer.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 13, 2012
500 ml bottle. From the Scottish Real Ale Shop.
Pale orange golden colour with small white head. Bitterish fruity hops, sourish apple, grainy malt and electric fire in aroma. Flavour is bitter hops and heavy grainy malt. Bitterness is harsh but somewhat weirdly enjoyable. Bitterness stays.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 4, 2012
In bottle at home. Pours a golden colour with a thick white head. Aroma of musty yeast, pineapple, hay and earth. Quite a musty flavour also with yeasty quite prominent and fairly bitter. Moderate carbonation and a chewy mouth-feel.

Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - AUG 24, 2011
Bottle from Scottish Reale Ale shop. Clear golden colour, white head. Nose is caramel malts, slightly hoppy, bit of rubber. Flavour is malty, fairly bitter, some bitter hops. A bit harsh. Not very pleasant.

Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - MAR 13, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2012 smells slightly hoppy w/ a little oak. not very nice. full body but tastes like sun tea gone a bit off bitter finish. not good. i’d think it had sun strike if i hadn’t bought it at the brewery and kept it in a box.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle, Rehills, Ncl. Sparkling pale gold beer, malty aroma and flavour, sweet biscuity taste with a zesty, lively carbonation. Bitter on the tongue and in the aftertaste, which is sharp and lingering. Does sweeten slightly towards the end.

JohnRMurdoch (4878) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 10, 2011
Bottle from The Scottish Real Ale Shop. Soapy tropical fruit aroma. Hazy golden brown colour with a massive foamy head. Unbalanced biscuit malt flavour with a bitter aftertaste. Not great.

Christian (13670) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2010
Hazy golden with a big, white head. Aroma dominated by fruit, pineapple in particular, with a yeasty note. Dry and fruity flavour with a hoppy and quite bitter finish.

Oakes (17685) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle. Cloudy light tan. Hop aroma is dried leaves and earth. Leafy character, with some toast and a dry finish.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
Bottle. Bright orange-gold with thick stable head. Aroma is gin-like with floral hop notes. Soft palate. Really lovely hoppy flavors here. the malts are richly smoky, toasty. The hops are lovely with citrus peel, bitter herbs, and dry flowers. Gorgeous!
