Benzai (15624) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2017
Bottle @ tasting shared by Roelzie1986. Clear loght orange dark golden color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, a bit blossomy, sweetish floral hops. Watery texture, low to average body and carbonation. Could be a lot better when fresh, tastes a bit old tbh.

Inoven (746) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2017
Flesje gedeeld door Roelzie en gedronken met TomHendriksen en Benzai. Oranje-geel helder bier met weinig schuim. Aroma van citrusvruchten iets rokerig. Smaak is waterig. Weinig nasmaak.

330ml bottle. Pours orange. Peach, lemon, sherbet, little soda water. Nice bitterness, impressive for the strength but still nothing special.

Samtzu (450) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - APR 22, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a mild god with strong white head. Lots of visable carbonation. Subtle hop nose. Light body which gives way to a nice hop profile. Excellent session beer.

vipinvelp (4438) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2017
Clear dark yellow, white lacing foam head. Fresh hoppy aroma and bitter taste. A refreshing beer. Don’t notice the low alcohol content. (Velp 201702)

drjoeng (1291) - SINGAPORE - FEB 10, 2017
3.3%ABV. American pale ale. Poured out amber. 12ºSRM. Head of small white bubbles. Nose has aroma of candy, malt sugar, ripe citrus with tangerines and tangelos being the most obvious. Sweet almost overripe oranges. Light sweet and citrusy. Very refreshing and inviting. Mouthfeel is full-bodied then light. Good carbonation. Palate has hefty malt funk on the front, then fades to reveal graham flour, light toast. Hops are spicy with spruce and pine on the front, then citrus peel with brightness first, then the slightly oily bitter of the peel, then the light stingy lingering flavor-palate feel. Finish is clean and brief with some citrus vapor. Overall, gets high marks for being a full-bodied, well-balanced pale ale. Light enough on the malt to keep it true to style. Not over-hopped demonstrating maturity and restraint.
