oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottled@chriso. Orangeish golden colour, small off-white creamy head. Aroma is fruity, wooden and mild herbal notes. Also some mild not-too-sweet peachyness. Flavour is fruity, mildly leathery, some slight yeast and mild peachy and citrusy notes. Balanced and quite bodied blond ale.

Vladivostok (227) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Rather more heavily carbonated than most cask beers and slightly hazy. Overall, a likeable gentle golden ale without too overt a citrus character. Well worth a session.

imdownthepub (10023) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Gold with only slight head. This was quite perfumed on the initial taste, burnt cracker note in the body, flowery fruity, passion fruit type note or even fruit cocktail. A touch over sweet, a bit of a mixed bag.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Alice BS. Hazy golden with a small, rough white head that dissipates completely. A dry, fresh fruitiness in the nose with a whiff of citrus. Light in body, completely flat, citrus notes and a dry lightly hopped finish. But fairly fresh and drinkable. 051011

johndoughty (3890) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2010
Bottle.Slightly cloudy with a thin body.Some bitterness but this is really quite band and forgetable. The label is the only thing I can remember about it.

Quack-Duck (7778) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2010
bottle from Topsham Wines (08/2010). Hazy pale strawy colour, mid-sized white head. Spicy citrusy nose. Light-bodied, malty, with lots of citrus flavours and aromatic hops. Hints of spices such as coriander and clove. It strongly reminds me of a (good) Dutch or Belgian blonde ale with some witbier character. A beautiful, light summer beer.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask handpull at the Market Porter.
Clean pale gold with no head. Rather harsh and raw. Feels a little under brewed. Floral and very fruity. Oddly sweet. Interesting but nothing I could get excited about.

maeib (8621) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2009
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Merchants Inn Rugby A golden headless beer sitting still in the glass. There is some sweet apply honey notes in the nose. The taste is also sweet with a hint of biscuit and some crunchy cracker notes..
