Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, - JAN 11, 2006
A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of fruit. The flavor is sweet malty combined with notes of straw. Ordinary.

mt_hall (105) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottled. A bright, clear copper colour with virtually no head. Malt, molasses, honey, and grapefruit aromas. Start is slightly sweet malt, but refreshing and clean overall, with a slightly drier finish. Pretty good.

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 13, 2013
bottle. Hazy golden colour, id-sized hwite head. Malty base that suzppoets the shy but aromatic hops quite well. Well-balanced golden ale.

Grumbo (546) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013

Cloudy and thick head, sharp bitterness, orange and lime. Very nice. Very refreshing.

minutemat (1497) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2013
Cask at Camp Bestival, Lulworth. Mild, uncomplicated, full-tasting ale. Has a pleasing aftertaste, almost verging on orange zest without actually getting there.

Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2013
500 ml bottle sampled in 2009. Slightly hazy golden body with a small off-white head. Light but quite nice aroma of malt and a bit undefined hop aroma. Flavor is light malty with low bitterness, not much flavor actually. Thin body and weak aftertaste. Rather boring.

berkshirejohn (4440) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2013
Cask at the Rose and Crown, Sandhurst. Golden amber with a scummy cream head; fruitya roma; sweet and fruity flavour to start, then lightly bitter, before a sweet biscuity finish. A reasonable but rather average bitter.

Decaf (21) - - JAN 6, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear golden amber, light caramel aroma. Medium body with fruity esters and malty sweetness. Light bitterness on the finish but the malt flavor dominates. Enjoyable session ale.

Beesbeer (452) - WALES - NOV 24, 2012
Surprisingly rich. Deep flavours of metallic resin hops, around a medium body. Would seek this out again.
