Ungstrup (29850) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2010. A golden beer with a thin yellowish head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrus fruits and straw, leading to a dry finish. Quite refreshing.

ladnewton (1489) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2010
Cask at the Southampton Arms on 1st July 2010. Hazy amber with cream-white head. Bitter hoppiness and citrus notes harmonise together but are up against an underlying "ashiness" that seems to detract rather than add o the experience of the beer. As with all my lower ratings I am quite happy to be proved wrong!

Bottle. Amber with a short-lived, off-white head. Aroma of sweet malts, orange blossoms and citrus hops. Flavour also started with some sweetness, a hint of spice, huge citrus hops and a big bitter finish. Excellent stuff.
