harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2008
Cask handpull at Green Berry, Deal. Pale gold, thin white head. Initial hit is ginger and elderflower. I mean it is gingery. No doubt, bit too much on the spice. Also a bit soapy. OK. Some lemon

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2007
Gravity cask @ Cricketers Arms 1st Beer Festival. Pale in colour.Citrus and ginger which has a good level of heat in the finish. Slightly sweet and with the soft chalky malts this ends slightly sweet and spicy with a little yeast. Could do with being a bit dryer or maybe being slightly tart.

pilsnerrogge (2410) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2007
Cask@Akkurat, Stockholm Dark golden with a low but dense head. Aroma and flavour was dominated by artificial, lemon-y citrus; made me think of something that can be used when cleaning the bathroom. ("WC-Anka")
