Ungstrup (34351) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 12, 2003
It has a sweet malty creamy aroma with notes of oranges and a little sourness. The color is orange and it has a fine foamy head. The flavor is a creamy malty one, with a note of oranges, in the end it turns a little bitter. A very drinkable and refreshing beer - but not bitter enough for a bitter.

Bottleshare at Leighton’s Stratoflat. Can from Dan the Man. Clear gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is thin and mildly dry. Very modest carbonation, especially from a can. Thin pale malts, some paper. Trace of creamy sweetness. Esters and a whisper of something fruity. Light semi dry finish. Macro nonsense.

Leighton (18527) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
Can at home in London. Pours clear, pale orange-gold with a weak, creamy head. Aroma gives off some light leaves, toast and honey. Light sweet flavor with some toasty bread, toasty sugar, faint stale leafy bitterness and hints of caramel. Light bodied and flat. Mild sweet finish with some dry and toasty malts, weak and dry caramel, faint wet leaves. Just an all around mediocre bitter. A bit disrespectful, really.

rlgk (18199) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 29, 2015
Draught at Leonardo Hotel, Heathrow. Clear golden beer with a nice foamy offwhite head. Malty bready aroma, sourish with fruity notes. Fruity malty flavor, bready, grass, sourish, some caramel and with floral notes. Thin bodied and kinda boring.

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Bitter Ales liegen mir nciht wirklich, das wird auch bei diesem hier deutlich. Säuerlich-bitterer Antrunk, der sich im wässrigen Aroma verliert. Ab und an wieder bitter, dieser Ton steht allerdings ziemlich alleine da und macht so keine große Freude. Wässriger nachgeschmack, dezent hopfig. Geht grad noch. Test vom 5.11.2007, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 14,6,7,4,5,5 - 6,20

harrisoni (17282) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 15, 2005
Nitro at Man of Kent, Ashford. Forced to have this as there was nothing else and I wanted to watch the football. A pale imitation of what it was when I first had it 15 years ago. Some creaminess and some hop on the finish, but basically this was pants
