HogTownHarry (6374) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
September 7, 2014 - at Craft Beer Co (Islington) * As Dark Star Vice Beer @ 4.5% ABV but confirmed it IS this beer * Clear deep gold, minimal off-white bubbly head. Nice light slightly funky grain and solid fruit with more than a little coriander and mixed spices - pretty decent. Taste follows - more spice, less grain, a bit more alcohol character. Chewy, good body, slightly dry post-spice finish. As almost always, a well-crafted offering from DS.

JFURYCAT (1079) - East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2005
As an American who regularly visits the UK, it was nice coming across a wheat beer which reminds me of the wheat beers I have back in PA. It does seem a bit too carbonated but it has nice sweet flavor too it. It is a very tasty sweet beer but nothing spectacular. It would do well in the US if it wasn’t so fizzy.

Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 8, 2005
[Keg at The Evening Star, Brighton] A yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is slightly wheaty. The flavor is sweet spicy with notes of citrus, hints of wheat, and loads of hops in the end, which is dry.

SilkTork (5528) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2005
Carbonated keg. Evening Star, Brighton - with joet. Big carbonation. Too big - an invasive and nasty bubble rush. Tonic water bitterness at the back. Honey sweetness on the lips. Vomit aroma. Yeast infection colour. A bad experience which I wouldn’t want to repeat - and my first poor Dark Star beer.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 9, 2004
Tap@The Evening Star, Brighton. Pretty bland for a witbier, only a slight suggestion of coriander and a slight lemon tang, reminded me of a few of the blander microbrewed wits/wheats i had in the states, this was pretty boring.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - JUL 4, 2004
Keg, at the Evening Star, Brighton.
Pale golden, larger looking really. Has a persistent fizz that annoys really, given the selection of other beers. Not cloudy, no bubble gum. Nothing, fizzy, bright larger. [After the annual cricket match, Wenlock Arms v Evening Star]
