renffisch (760) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2008
bottle thanks to tashi. Straight forward hop nose, nothing original. clear straw colour, little white head. quite bland and un-everything. overly carbonated. ok.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Tashi’s house, 28/05/08. Not too much to say - this was very similar to the others. A bit fizzier perhaps. Bored now.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2008
A Mes rate: bottle thanks to Tashi.
Golden brown colour with a thin white head. Balanced aroma of bitter grassy hops and good earthy malt. Similar flavour but somehow it doesn’t balance out. Dry finish is nice though. So so.

Whelk (123) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2008
Cask at the University Arms, Sheffield. Pours a dark orange with a thin white head. Aroma is biscuit and citrus hoppiness, a touch of green apple. Flavors are cidery, biscuity, vegetal, with a dry finish.

StueyD (1122) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2007
A pale golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A biscuity malt, slightly wheaty, cereal nose, with a hint of citrusy hop. A dry taste, potent zesty flavour, loads of citrusy hops, followed by a balancing, smooth biscuity malt taste. The finish is dry and hoppy. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds Summer Beer Festival 2007, Heacham, Norfolk).

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2007
Gold with a white head. Sweet fruit and some malt in the aroma. Taste is hoppy and full of grapefruit. Rather too fizzy. Otherwise quite an engaging homemade quality.

omhper (19233) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 3, 2007
Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy golden, airy head. Bready nose. Dryish with some hay-like hops. Bready chewy malt make up a medium body. A malt driven, very English beer with a short, dry salty finish.

scotty (1044) - SCOTLAND - MAR 10, 2007
Draught, Staggs Musselburgh. Attractive golden colour with a long lasting white head. Well hopped, with a nicely balanced maltiness, this is a good, palatable brew.
