Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Cask at Charlie’s Bar, Copenhagen.
Hazy amber beer with a fine off-white head. Classic English bitter aroma of hop, malt and flower. Flat and rather mild flavor. Dry hoppy and light spicy with flower tones. All right but ordinary.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Deep amber coloured body. Thin grey vale. A comprehensive blend of malts greats you from the outset. Wide ranging with rich ripe fruit flavours. Balanced nicely by bitter length the beer drinks nicely, even if I was a tad cautious of the 4.8% ABV.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 27, 2002
A beutiful amber beer with a good head. It has a very nice aroma of flowers and fruit and that it comes from a cask. The flavor is of a good maltblend, prickling your tongue and ending in a good bitterness. And ofcourse it has the cask feel.
