Hanoi (933) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2014
Nose is gently tropical, caramel and a little orange; its insubstantial. Taste is of a commercial pilsner , with a tropical finish. Mouthfeel is too fizzy. Id heard a number of positive things about the brewer, but this is a genuinely terrible beer utterly disjointed.

larsga (7497) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2014
Medium coarseish white head doesnt last. Clear yellow body with light carbonation. Resiny tropical fruit aroma with oily grassy notes. Dryish resiny tropical fruit taste with mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish resiny mealy aftertaste with faint fruity notes. Its not bad at all, but a little bit too thin and watery. (0.355l bottle, from Meny Strmmen.)

The_Osprey (7835) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2014
From bottle at The Diner Shoreditch. Short review due to social/session. Drunk from bottle so no idea what it looks like and difficult to judge aroma. Body is medium and carbonation is active. Flavour is kiwi and apple. Fruity hops, a soft bitterness. Pleasant accompaniment to my double burger with pulled pork. Better than Id been led to believe.

Crystal clear with a white head. Light fruit and malts on the nose. Taste is light malts and not much else. A faint bitter finish.

rumproasts (5324) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2014
bottle. Golden with small head. Light malt body. Flat with a bit of sweetness. Mild hop bite in the finish. Slightly below average. Its about what I expected for a faux-craft golden ale.

gschrade (1082) - Collinsville, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste slightly sweet, lightly fruity, refreshing. I thought this was pretty good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

johnnyoski (445) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle. Pale, yellow color with a thin white head. Citrus and coconut aroma. Surprisingly its more sweetly floral flavored. Average carbonation with a thin texture. Definitely a unique tasting blonde ale and it exceeded my low expectations after sampling some of their other offerings.

Pikkio (11) - ITALY - MAR 1, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2014 Gold colour, bubbly lager style head which disappears quickly. Light tropical fruits aroma. light body with nice carbonation. Strong juicy pineapple flavour. Its definitely interesting for an Hawaiian beer, but its very unbalanced and the tropical taste it feels a bit artificial and too overwelming for a beer which is very light in all the other flavours (hops and malts).

TBone (17316) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Bottled at kkk Kamppi. Golden color, medium-sizef head. Tropical fruity aroma. Light-bodied. Tropical fruity flavor but quite dry finish with grapefruit and even some cardboard. Easy going thirst-quincher.

sailracer (486) - Massachusetts, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Tap. Pours a light gold. Great hop aroma. Initial taste had some grapefruit and citrus flavors, like a good IPA but without lots of bitter aftertaste. The flavors wore off slightly as I worked my way through the beer, which was the only down side. This was a pretty good beer and one of the best lower gravity beers Ive had in awhile.
