shoulderbroken (2179) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 5, 2012
Cask at Craft. Thin pale blond colour, with bubbly white head. Aroma very grainy, bit of stink. Taste has lots of grain/wheat. Nice malty finish. Not bad, but nothing too exciting.

jackl (4929) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Cask @ CPK. Light golden color, small thick white head. Attractive. The nose is grassy and quite floral, herby. The taste is lightly sweet, hoppy. A very summery pint. The palate is light, soft carbonation. Overall, an inoffensive bitter. One to enjoy with grandad at the bowls or something. Nice though.

FatPhil (9594) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2006) Both the aroma and the taste agree on this - flowery, hoppy, and bitter. Long bitter finish.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2006
Arom is minimal but gives grassyness. Taste is pale malts with a bit of chalkyness, quite bitter for what flavour your getting and a shorter finish than expected, but quite drinkable.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2006

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2006
Cask (handpull) at the Flowerpot, Derby. Another good varietal Durham beer, rounded citric aroma followed through into bitter grapefruit finish.

sayravai (4673) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 20, 2006
(Cask@Gallows Bird, Espoo) Golden color with a persistent, very small head. Quite strongly, sharply bitter flavor with a dry, bitter finish and not much malt. Light to medium-bodied, sharp and low-carbonated palate. Too little body for such a sharp hopping. A not very sophisticated brew.

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2006 1. Cask Handpump at the Cask & Cutler, Sheffield 26/04/2003 Clear golden and slightly fruity. Creamy slightly bitter hop finish. 2. Cask Handpump at the Harbour View, Sunderland 01/11/2005. Straw golden coloured hoppy and fruity grapefruit and crisp bitterness in the finish.

Nekronos (3646) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 8, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 IT was almost water in appearance, like if it did not have any hops at all. BUt the flavor was extremely bitter, so, how?.
