alex_beacon (5) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2011 does not count
hand pull and cask at the beacon hotel, Sedgley. Great pale colour, fairly good head retention, disappointingly lacking in body, nice citrus fruit aroma, dry throughout, fairly pleasant session beer.

Nice new brewery, to me. It was refreshing this one and a little sweet, a little herbal too although not too bitter. At GBBF 2010.

Svesse (6291) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 12, 2010
(Cask at GBBF London Earl’s Court, 4 Aug 2010) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, apricots, grass and elderflowers. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, pineapple and grassy hops. Rather light body, balanced sweetness. Refreshing hop character. Possibly a bit thin, but refreshing.

Cask@GBBF2010. Slightly hazy yellowish golden colour with small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, mildly grassy and quite citrusy as well. Flavour is citrus, quite zesty as well as some mild honey and nectar. Mild bready malts as well.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 2, 2010
Cask. Clear yellow with a white head. Very fresh citrus notes in the nose - even grapefruit. Ah, now I see - Nelson Sauvin, yummy. Light-bodied, rather flat, fruity alright but completely dominated by the fresh aroma hops leaving a slight astringency. 220110

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2010
Cask, gravity, at The Pig’s Summer Beer Festival ’10, at the Pig and Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire. Pale gold. Citric hop aroma. Grapefruit taste with some sweetness. Mid bitter finish. Standard hoppy golden of the type that has become tediously common in English summers.
