BeerViking (2984) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Cask at the Magpie. Dark gold with a clingy head and a very very faint haze. Bright floral and citrus nose, Fruity and citrus on the palate, and extremely bitter, with an almost harsh finish. Needs a sparkler perhaps?

Douberd (3048) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2015
(Buxton SPA) Bottle 330 ml at home, served into a tulip, ABV 4.1% Golden yellow colour on a crystal clear body. Big white head, frothy, with average retention, leaving spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma has grass, hay, light hops. Taste has nice citrus notes, light pepper, malts, grass , less hay, quite bitter with the bitterness building up on the aftertaste, long lasting. Medium thin body, good carbonation - towards the high side-, very dry palate. Decent, definitely thirst-quenching.
