Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2004
An amber beer with a fine though disappearing head. The aroma is sweet malty with clear notes of yeast and caramel. The flavor is somewhat weird; sour and with a weird hop note. It starts out sweet malty but then gets dominated by sour oranges.

harrisoni (13883) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2007
500ml bottle from Sainsbury, Ashford. My first new rating of 2007, Crystal clear amber colour with lastng rocky off white head. Some peppery citrus hop aroma. I thought that it might be filtered and pasteurised and therefore a bit dead. Some candy sugar suggests that it is pasteurised. Bit biscuity on aroma. Some lovely citrus lemon hop on finish, with good bitterness. Bit soapy maybe. The middle is a bit empty with that boiled sweet flavour. Hops are good though.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 21, 2000
I love that complex yeastiness of the Yorkshire squares. This beer is a wonderful showcase for this rare brewing technique.

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 16, 2013
Bottle as Sainsbury’s Yorkshire Bitter. Pours copper with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is floral and malty. Med body, almost. Flavor is mostly floral hop with some very nice light roasty malt. It’s dry. It’s bitter. It’s very good.

Bottled, 500ml, pasteurised. From Tesco, Banbury. Gold to amber beer with slight white head, carbonated. Sharp, slightly chemical flavoured beer with thin mouth, palate. Some hoppy character but little to go on. Pretty average beer.
