Majek (795) - Ząbki, POLAND - DEC 30, 2013
Light yellow colour with medium head. Some lacing. Quite strong aroma of citrus, grapefruit zest with some diacetyl. Taste is very bitter, full of citrus. Soft carbonation. Low to medium body. Its not as good as I supposed.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2013
Bottle - cloudy golden colour with huge white head, very lively. Aroma of citrus (lemon) hops and pine, with biscuity malts. Similar in the taste, nice blast of hoppy bitterness. Medium bodied, quite carbonated. Quite straight forward and pretty good.

MustangMarkF (247) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2013
500ml Bottle. This pours a very light yellow body with a medium thick white head (very similar to its sister Kipling). Its aroma is more biscuit than Kipling with a strong follow up of citrus (lemon), mango, and passion fruit. Its taste follows the scent quite closely but it has a sweet start and a dry bitter finish - much more so than Kipling. Top top pint!!

From a 50 cl bottle shared at home on Christmas Eve. Pours a clear pale gold with a thick white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of pine and citrus with a strong pale malt backbone. Light bitter finish. Tasty.

Tall, skinny 0,5L bottle. Pours pale color. Aroma of fermented pineapple, hops, & pale cereal grains. Flavor of sharp, bitter hops. Some cereal notes in the finish, underlined by citrus oil bitterness. (3918)

Slowbeer ontap (20-Dec-2013) Lovely biggish fresh herbal hop aroma. Cloudy light amber yellow colour, decent head and sheet lacing. Big hop spice pepper aniseed flavour. Big bitter herbal spice pepper finish and tangy stark pepper hop aftertaste.

Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
(Bottle): Pale golden colour, white head. Aroma of grapefruit, mango, pineapple, lemon, orange, caramel, malt and biscuit. Flavour is a delicious fruit bomb of the aforementioned fruit notes. Really light and crisp, decent bitterness and dangerously drinkable for a 7.4% beer. Very impressed.

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2013
Floral aroma with a pungent tang. Sweet taste up front, but mostly bitter citrus and pine. A bit acidic though. This has a great bitter finish - really dry and feels like youre raking around in the embers of a bonfire. NIce slow drink. Shame it looks like wee.
