hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Faint hoppy aroma. Taste has a sweet almost vinous maltiness. Some bitterness. Didn’t quite work for me.

DanielBrown (3629) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2005
Gravity at Birmingham Beer Fest. An English attempt at a style coined and fashioned in the US (though based on a perception of a classic UK beer style). Confused?? Clean hops, malty finish, bready cleanliness. Clean and smooth, this is along the lines of Nogne EPA and has a certain relaxation on the hops, allowing the malt to be promoted. Enjoyable and quality as usual from DS.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2007
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy golden with orange edges. Fresh hoppy aroma of orange-peels and grass with light notes of honey and peaches. Dryish flavour of minerals, orange-peels and flowers with subtle notes of crackers and honey Medium, leaning body. Long grassy and orangey bitter finish with notes of flowers and minerals. Great stuff.

Funny hop taste in this - borders too much on the wee flavour for my liking. Not unpleasant but not a winner
