Svesse (7850) - 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.

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2010
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 (25063) - 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.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2010
Hand pulled at the Pub, Leicester. Soft, slightly grassy, mushy feel and flavour. Not much of anything here - neither pleasant, nor unpleasant. Slight soap and faint hop. Like bathing with hop soap and then eating the sponge and rinsing your tongue with the water from the shower head. Or perhaps like putting a cushion down your trousers. A bit of a grower actually. Peachy aroma. So much text from such an innocuous beer - perhaps I am impressing my own personality into the glass. The beer thus ends up a reflection of the drinker and is liked or disliked as such. Scarlet Johannson perhaps.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2010
Halves and pints, The Flowerpot, Derby. Thought I’d had it before, so didn’t really bother rating it. Brilliant with a slim dying head. Lovely fresh flowery and tropical hop; background biscuit and honey, perfumey Earl Grey, then Darjeeling leafiness. Lemony hop and creamy biscuit above all. Best beer on a fairly exhaustive trawl of Derby.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 31, 2010
Cask Handpump at NWAF The Venue, Miles Platting 22/01/2010 Big fruit and hop aroma. Clear golden coloured hoppy and fruity grapefruit flavour with a hint of dryness and creaminess in a bitter malt finish.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2010
Cask at The New Oxford, Manchester. A light golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and citrus. The flavor is light, but lovely hoppy lending it notes of elderflowers and citrus fruits on a lightly malty back ground, leading to a dry and bitter finish.
