A golden, pale beer boasting a tremendous creaminess which marries ingeniously with its flowery bitterness.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2016
Half-pint, cask, hand-pulled in The Crown Inn, Oakengates Shropshire on 19th Sep 2016. Slight haze to the light golden body, on top a white head. Floral aroma and flavours, strange softness to the palate, could not get my head around the smooth body or the actual taste, which I found too wishy-washy. Had the beer in between two highly hopped APA’s so might have been poisoned by their strength and depths of flavour.

MrHangover (4024) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 6, 2013
Bottle, courtesy of jmgreenuk. Pours a clear, slightly hazy golden beer with a fluffy, white head on top. Aroma is faint, slightly yeasty and a touch of butter. Flavor is nicely bitter and firm, soft carbonation. Quite a decent brew, but not that much special going on.

jmgreenuk (7843) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle from Stirchley Wines. Poured a light hazy amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is crisp yeasty and with a little mint. The flavour is medium bitter, yeasty and with a little liqourice on the smooth refreshing palate. I liked this beer, but its no ESB as it suggests here!

Bottle.Cloudy yellow and pretty lifeless. Bland without any real flavour. Definitely not one of their best.

Ungstrup (34696) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2010
Bottled. A hazy golden beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of fruit and some malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruits, and a bit of spices, leading to a dry spicy finish.
