3.56/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Slightly hazy champagne-lemon yellow with a rocky white head.
Musty lemon, carambola, and herbal hop nose plus some fresh country biscuit.
Lagery grain sack up front then slight lemon Starburst, noble grass, and herbal hops.
Coriander leaf finish and numbing linger.
Light, crisp, round, gassy.

Magnum, Tradition, Perle, Cascade, Amarillo, Citra

Pilsner and wheat malts and it shows - way too pale. Nose is right, but where did the hops go? 10.21 expiry date suggests this is 5 months from bottling, but it couldn't have faded this badly with that hops bill. Thin and toothless - not even a blonde, never mind an APA.

Not undrinkable; just an unhappy lager cop-out.

3.92/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.25

Poured a light, hazy yellow.

Faint smell of wheat, hops (earthy/citrus) and not much else.

Tastes a bit bitter of earthy hops (cascade-esque) with underlying, slight malty body throughout. Very balanced and drinkable considering the hop profile. Refreshing and crisp.

Would I buy it again? Yes. Would be savage on a sunny day.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours gold with a large head.
Nose shows lychee, melon, herbal hops and biscuity malt.
Some of the fruit remains as flavours but its more about the earthy and herbal hops. Very clean.

4/5  rDev +12%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Half litre bottle, poured into over sized Kasteel
tulip.

A: Very pale colour, slightly hazy, large to
medium thick head, which faded quickly but left
some lacing.

S: Prominent Cascade hop, notes of
grapefruit and other citrus fruits, also had hints of
cork.

T: More or less followed the nose, had a
decent balance without any unpleasantness.

M: Crisp with medium carbonation, went down well.

O: I’ve wanted to try this for a while and it didn’t
disappoint, comparable to British and American
takes on the style, might not quite scratch the
itch of a west coast hop head, but it would get
fairly close.

3.43/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours murky golden with a massive tall white creamy head. Slow dissipation leaves rich lacings.

S: Lots of tropical fruits and also pine from the American hops. Some caramell malts balances the hops to some extent.

T: Bready sweet caramell malt, slightly roasted. Mild American floral, but also bitter hops gives fruityness; grapefruits and lemons, but rather faint (considering the style).

M: Aftertaste is short, while body and carbonation is medium.

O: Started off quite nice, but what it lacked in taste also is what kept the grades down.
