Ungstrup (34696) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 25, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] A hazy brown beer with a light brown head. The aroma is powerful dominated by yeast. The flavor is also powerful with strong notes of yeast, but also caramel and roasted malt, leading to a very bitter end.

Cask at the Raglan Arms, Rugby - 19/09/12. Badged as Belvoir Best. Clear golden with a decent white head - really looks the part for a cask bitter! Very muted nose, really little to say other than a little malt. Taste is a big improvement on the nose with toasted malts, caramel, hops amd a little smokiness. Medium bodied, smooth and creamy, nice feel to this bitter.

Cask Conditioned at Harbury Beer Festival. Amber orange beer, no head quite flat. Toffee malts predominate a little sour, moderate hoppiness though boiled rather than fresh.

JorisPPattyn (9532) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 10, 2007
Cask Transparant, but decent fluffy head, over foxy-amber beer. Bit of caramel, UK hops, dry hop sacks, old hessian. Nutty & caramel flavour, but light & relieved by some good aroma hops added. A bit light for a Best Bitter. Quite some slickness, even sticky, caramel ending. Light bodied, but nice, invitingly tasting bitter.
