stravale (3135) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [230114]
Golden amber, clear, thin white head that dissipates
Aroma - citrus hops, soft graprfuit, slight lemon, soft sweet fruity light malts
Taste - Soft citrus, mellow grapefruit, slight lemon, soft fruity malt, some caramel, touch of toasted malts, flavour a bit too light
Palate - Medium carb, light body, bit oily. Finish - light citrus, quite thirst quenching, soft bitter, light finish
Overall - OK but was expecting it to be better from the aroma. Prob better on cask. Don’t understand why it’s not in a 500ml bottle as its only 4%.

zacgillbanks (5506) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle from Waitrose, Windsor. A golden-amber coloured beer with a sweet citrus fruit and toffee flavour, malty notes and a red fruit and light bitter finish.

3.3
The_Osprey (9120) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2014
Cask at Black Dog Vauxhall. Short review at a work do. Clear orange, still, tiny bubbly head. Smell - not much going on here - slight citrus and malts, too toned down to describe fully. Body is medium, carbonation low. Taste - toned down citrus, fair whack of chemically hops suggesting TCP. OK overall.

mR_fr0g (13475) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle at home from oddbins london bridge. orange / light amber colour with a lasting thin white head. Aroma is nutty malt with some caramel and berry english yeast esters. Some mineral character in the nose as well. Flavour is light honey / nutty malt, some caramel sweetness, mineral and english leaf hops. Solid earthy bitterness in the finish. Palate is fairly light medium body and slightly thin with a fairly dry finish.

MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2014
A nice and easy to go piwo with its fine caramel moments. Drinkable all the way but maybe every beer on the 31st of December is.

3.7
McTapps (6976) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 31, 2013
Pours out of the bottle in a deep amber colour with very low head and medium body. Nice aroma of of nuts and straw. Taste of hops, caramel, chestnuts, nuts, malt and mild chocolate. Very easy and nice to drink with a very smooth and mild finish. Nice one.

3.2
kufdam (159) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2013
Cask at The Windsor and Eton brewery. Flowery hops on a rich pale malt make this eminently drinkable.

Juha (73) - Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Bright and coppery. Aroma is toffee and NS hops behind a Crystal Malt wall. Taste is malty toffee, hops quite subdued, but some tropical hop bitterness coming through. Quite clever actuaaly, crystal toffeeness and pacific combo.

3.6
saxo (19522) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle from AlesByMail.co.uk. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are rich flowers, bitter hops, malt, caramel and fruits. Nice bitter finish.

3.2
ianwelby (1521) - SCOTLAND - JUL 5, 2013
Clear, deep gold beer with a frothy head. Peachy, hoppy scent. Peach in the flavour but it’s predominantly the dry hop flavour coming through. The finish is dry but with a sour, sweet tang.
