SirADNielsen (8949) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Tap in Aarhus. A bit hazy, golden appearance with a small white head. Somewhat hoppy, straw, a bit citrusy, light grapefruity aroma. Fairly clean, somewhat fruity, light pale malty flavor. For a golden ale, it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t anything to get excited about either.

Cask @ CPK. Golden body with a tiny white head. The nose is acidic sweet lemon, cut grass and some mildly menacing funk. The taste is tangy skunky hops. Lemon rind and cheesy funky yeastiness. Sweet citrus. Quite dirty in a good way. The finish is dry and refreshingly bitter. Very drinkable smooth body. Light. Silky soft carbonation. Very nice from Crouch Vale.

On gravity at the Barley Mow, Bristol 21/04/2012. Clear gold in colour with a slight white head. Big hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pineapple with a touch of creamy malt. Flavour had more citrus, leading to a hoppy dry finish. Excellent.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 18, 2012
Cask. Pours golden with a slight haze and a lacing white head. Lovely sweet fruit in the nose with a lemon twist - but also a discreet whiff of diacetyl. Medium body, low carbonation, sweet fruitiness and some pleasant citrusy hops that also leave a fairly bitter finish. Delicious. 180412
