Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 5, 2007
This ale has a moderate head and a nice amber color. The mouthfeel is full and round, and the aroma has honey notes. The flavour is sweetish with notes of honey, hops, fruit and malt. The bitterness doesn’t show up until the finish, where it is accompanied by a surprising astringent acidity.

harrisoni (13156) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2007
500ml bottle from Booths. It’s gold, with thin white head. Hoppy aroma. Some grassy hop, hay. It’s got some thing in the line of Summer Lightning. Too carbonated and a bit thin in malts too. Finish is too metallic. Alcohol doesn’t over do it.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 10, 2007
Bottle (500ml). Via trade with jerc - thanks, Jer!. Slightly hazy light gold with a tinge of amber, large frothy white head. Nice cereal grain aroma, no skunk, doesn’t seem stale, soft and funky/grassy hops, hint of slightly tart fruit. Very mild flavour, touch of bottle, nice pungent grassy hop finish, still a bit of flax/grain character to it. Average, slick body, a bit astringent, slight bitter aftertaste. Not bad for the style, good hop character.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2007
Light coppery colored, medium sized white head. Flowers, caramel, lemon and hoppy bitterness in aroma, still not very rich one. Medium bodied. Flavor is somehow watery with lemon and mild flowery tones, some tangy metallic sourness also there. Aftertaste has bittern hops and lemon. One-dimensional.
