The Yakima hops are very present - aromawise as tastewise. Especially the first couple of sips is typed by the cistrus taste of this hop variety and offers a restricted bitterness - what makes this beer also enjoyable for the NON-IPA fraction of beer lovers! Then the British and German malt varieties take over and add a chewy sweetness. The whole, combined with the low ABV, makes of this beer a good summer drink. But by far not a perfect one as the body is too weak and the finish, despite a tart hop bitterness, is somehow castrated an stops in the middle of joy.... ippers (51) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2015
Meantime uit de fles. Geur is wat zurig en fruitig. Smaak is eerst iets zoet maar zet zich snel over in een bitter die niet fijn is MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle from Cellar Door, Four Oaks.
Pours ruby red, single finger white head, medium carbonation. Aroma of fruits, lemon, orange...then some malts too, biscuit, caramel...Taste of malts at the start, caramel, toffee, toasted malts, biscuit, bread, then hops, orange, lemon, then a bit of yeast in there too, add some pine and woodiness. Nice. Martinus (4692) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2015
Clear fox brown colour, white head. Quite fruity hoppy aroma, light caramel, malts. Light bitter flavour, light sweet caramel. Rather fizzy. Bitter finish.dj (625) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
(from 33cL bottle @ home)
Bottle. A tan brown colour with a small head. Aroma of citrus and yeasty malt, bitterness evident even on the nose. Flavour fairly acidic with citrus and coriander, some hoppy notes. Aggressive carbonation giving way to a watery finish. Poor and not at all enjoyable.

Bottle; pours clear copper with a khaki head; aroma is grapefruit with some caramel; taste starts sweet with caramel and then becomes bitter with grapefruit and orange; finish is bitter with more citrus; pretty good ale BlackHaddock (7583) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2015
5th May 2015: keg half-pint in Royal Oak somewhere in London. Red hue to the amber body, on top an off-white crown of foam. The nose had a mild malty aroma with some background earthiness. Taste, a blend of pale malts and slightly bittering hops: not as much going on as I hoped for. Not bland, but not flavoursome either. DwarfeD (3540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Clear amber brown with a small slightly off-white head. Light to medium body with moderate carbonation. Subtle sweet and bitter tones. Caramel, malts, herbs and spices. A decent amber ale. DJoer (1291) - NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2015

On tap. Pours a nice clear ruby with a few beige bubbles. Aroma is slightly nutty malts, bread and hops. Wasn’t so keen on the taste as I found this rather stale. I’ll try a bottle and re rate.
