MrHangover (4410) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2017
Bottle. Pours a semi clear, golden beer with a big overcarbonated white head on top. Aroma is floral and perfume-ish, tropical fruits, passionfruits and citrus zest. Also some malty touches in there. Flavor is fruity as well, but has this soapy thing going on which is hard to put a finger on. Highly carbonated for sure, bittersweet flavor overall and medium short, bitter aftertaste. Dry on the palate. Decent beer in my book.

radassace (257) - SCOTLAND - FEB 19, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a white head. All sorts of bits floating around in the glass ! Very citrus, tropical aromas with some caramel on the nose. Taste starts off with the malts, silky nice and sweet and then come the tropical peach, apricot and grapefruit. Mellows out a bit again to more sweet malts and then a lovely bitter finish with a touch of resin. Oooft this is good !

Andrus86 (635) - Busselton, WA, AUSTRALIA - FEB 14, 2017
BOTTLE. (Batch1084, BB dec15, drunk feb17) Pours a cloudy gold with big bubbly head.. That dirty generic nogne head that comes with there "base beers".. Taste has held up, good golden malt,a touch chewy, yet with enough "fresh sweet" hop to not be dull, score is for aged version, yet I would rate much higher fresh.. Sourced my old stock cellar

Bottle from marks and Spencer’s. A decent ale, strong grapefruit flavour and a good alcohol level to take control of the bitterness.

Cimbasso (886) - - FEB 8, 2017
33cl bottle from Marks & Spencer. A pleasant surprise to find this in my local supermarket as this is one of the finest breweries to be found anywhere. Pours an amber colour with a healthy white head. Good, spicy aromas and a taste of spices, orange peel, grass, tobacco. Great hop flavours on a good malty base, exactly what a pale ale should be! Highly drinkable!
