minutemat (5148) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2014
330ml bottle @ La Capsule, Lille. I have no idea why I paid 6 euros for this. Pours hazy gold with frothy head. Nice enough hoppy blond taste with a little spice and moderate bitterness.

Color oro plido algo turbio con espuma blanca. Aromas de frutas verdes con punto ctrico y levadura. En boca es fresca y ligera con un inicio dulce breve que pass pronto a una moderada acidez afrutada con trazos ctricos. Bien.

Davros (3054) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2014
Pours pale amber with a large lasting head. Nose shows spicy noble hops, faint vegetable notes, sweet light malt and spicy Belgian phenols. Similar flavours , quite hoppy with more spicy and grassy notes alongside light grainy malt. Good high carbonation works well.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2014
Big bottle, shared with Ian. Hazy golden with a thick white head that leaves a mess of lacy curtains. Grassy, green hop character is front and center, with bready notes and slightly sweet biscuit malts. The hops are more central than the yeast. A nice brew.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2014
750 mL bottle. Pours a hazy light copper with a thick white head of foam that laces nicely. Grainy malt, citrusy and floral hop with plenty of musty cellar character on the nose. Crisp, bitter and dry. Light bodied but creamy with high carbonation. Similar to, but less complex than the blonde. Superbly sessionable.
