Ungstrup (29493) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2011
Cask. A hazy golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops on a lightly malty background. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of straw, leading to a bitter finish.

oh6gdx (20668) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAY 15, 2010
Cask. Orangeish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is eggy, wooden, nectary, earthy and quite vegetably. Flavour is very similar with the earthyness being dominating. Also some more fruits and wood than in the aroma.

harrisoni (13894) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2008
Cask handpull at County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Gold, with slight haze, thin lasting off white head. Aroma of sherberty grapefruit hop. Citrusy flavours in the mouth, reminds me a bit of Oakham JHB. Right up my alley. I wonder if it has Mount Hood hops in? A little watery in mouth, but the hops are excellent. Good beer.

imdownthepub (10497) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Clouded gold with slight head. Fairly standard golden ale, dry and hoppy, light lager crossover with a touch more interest. Reasonable bitter finish, but it didn’t persuade the lager drinkers on our table to change.

Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Sweet sherbetty aroma. Slightly watery body. Sticky resiny bitter taste. Quite drinkable, but a bit boring.

Theydon_Bois (9270) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
Cask at the Seven Stars, Rugby, 04/06/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is laced with diacetyl, floral tones, butterscotch AD. Taste follows, a little less of the butterballs but still well evident, pale malt, straw, hint of citric fruit. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close. If I’d wanted a pint of Lurpak I’d have ordered a pint of Lurpak. Twiggy nonsense!
