swooper (1246) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Fresh aroma light fruit tones. Amber light white clear. Medium bitterness but not usuall might be the new zeeland hop. Light sweet with butter end. Good but not excelent

sm89walt (1751) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2011
Cask - The Trafford Arms, Norwich. Fine though lasting whtie to off-white head & a clear copper-amber coloured body. Pleasant enough fruity hop profile with a dose of earthy yeast throughout. Good citric bite with a light toastiness on the palate & a sweet biscuit maltiness. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel, good condition. Lingering hoppy bitter finish. Quite crisp & suppable.

DanielBrown (3735) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2011
Hand pullwed at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Nice start: fresh, with leather sofa polish and some lemon cream. Then gets a bit messy, with some hay and kellogs. But... has a nice aftertaste of cascade. Quite good.

Bullit (3975) - Burgos, SPAIN - NOV 13, 2011

imdownthepub (10020) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Chequers (Nicholsons), Oxford. Amber with white head. Sharp hoppy, piney beer, seemingly a complete contrast to previous beers brewed with Green Bullet hops today and by far the best. Bitter and drying in the close. Good stuff.

EdKing (1796) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2011 Cask in The Dog & Duck Soho. Pours golden with a touch of brown. Foamy white head and delightful nose of citrous, bit of lime and yes something sugary/soapy like bubble gum. Taste is citrousy green hops and then fairly typical English crystal malt backbone. Nice fresh crisp hoppy bitter but the malt character is a bit dull. Updated: 24/11/11

maeib (8611) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Southwark Tavern London. A golden beer with an off-white head. Very obvious Adnams yeast in this throughout. This balances really well with the hops which are sharper than your average Adnams beer but not obviously Green Bullet. This has had a rounded fruity feel to it but its still the Adnams yeast which is the most obvious component. There is no doubt that that yeast works better in this recipe than in any other light beer Adnams do. I thoroughly enjoyed the flavours in here.
