Beershine's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle at Banana jam. First impy/bw Ive tried from Africa I think. The beer is dull rusty colored but the head is stable. The aroma corresponds with rusty thick old hops and ripe fruit. The balance is good--lots of malt sweetness with a good enough amount of hop. Thick burly palate. The alcohol is apparent but not harsh. It is fairly well-made although uninspired. The sweetness does overtake the hops in the end. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Paul. Clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, mildly dry and with decent carbonation. Soft and sweetish malts. Nice hop spice and pine. Touch of floralness before more spice and pine. Light citric peel. Smooth semi dry finish. Dunno what everyone else was drinking, I liked it!

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
November 2016 - Bottle share at Canary Wharf, as Triggerfish Titan, 8%. Many thanks to Scopey for this "insanely intense" seffefricen DIPA. Hazy golden orange, still, foamy tan head. Aroma is lemon tart, butter candy, vanilla fudge. Nice in a weird way. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is quite buttery up front, floral, astringent, cheap sucky sweets, white mice sweets also come to mind, apple peel. Not sure about this. Quite rough and buttery. (2.7)

teorn88 (7632) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 21, 2016
33cl bottle shared in CW, thanks to Paul. It pours a clean golden color with a minimal bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet and rich in simple sugars, light off flavors too. Taste holds more sweet sugary notes and light puke. Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, bad

Scopey (14012) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle picked up at Roeland Liquors, shared at level 42. It pours clear golden - amber with a medium off - white head. The aroma is soft, sweet, butterscotch, Werthers original, bread and toffee. The taste is dry, pretty bitter, pithy citrus, rather zesty, soapy, grassy, waxy peel, bit of butterscotch / toffeee in the background with lingering bitter - dry - zesty finish. Medium body and moderate foamy carbonation. Not so great.

Leighton (20591) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Scoopey. Pours totally clear yellow-gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has a lot of butterscotch, white bread, dough, faint citrus. Medium sweet flavour with notes of maple syrup, pale bread, ample grassy bitterness, crispy pale malts. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with more grassy hops, sugary pale malts, maple. So so.

Bottle shared on Level 42 14/11/2016. Many thanks to Scopey for this one. A light hazed golden dull orange coloured pour with a fading off white head. Aroma is big butterscotch, caramel, brown sugars, veg piney hop. Aged. Flavour is composed of sweet caramel, unrefined sugars, vanilla, worthers original. Tired woody piney hops with a little jammy fruits. Woody finish. Palate is medium sweet., moderate carbonation, flabby. Good stuff.

Theydon_Bois (18701) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle at Level 42, thanks to the Laird of Inverurie, 14/11/16. Golden amber with a moderate off white cap. Nose is Werthers Original but without grandads moustache hairs, orange peel, buttery, brioche. Taste comprises melon, orange pith, straw, bread dough, caramel, thankfully the buttery notes subside. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light hop bitterness. So so overall ... low end for style.

Abrakarl (436) - SWEDEN - SEP 15, 2014
Really nice aroma. Better than the taste. The taste is pretty bitter. But mine says 8,0% ABV, not over 10%. Anyway very good beer. 1st from this brewery.

WhoU (125) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle Cape Town. Instant fruity peachy lichi aroma which is very pleasant. Pours copper orange. Very light head and carbonation. Alcohol is present but not unbearable. Overall very enjoyable especially the aroma. Hoppy for sure but happily!
