Papsoe (25084) - 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

Leighton (11447) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Gravity cask at the Wandsworth Common Halloween Beer Festival - Le Gothique, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a frothy, white head. Nose of pale, lightly doughy malts with hints of lemon, too. Light to medium sweet flavor with basic white bread pale malts and supporting citrus zip. Light bodied with fine carbonation; in great condition. Sweet finish with mellow straw bitterness, some faint lemon rind. An excellent low ABV session beer.

imdownthepub (10517) - 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.

Theydon_Bois (9280) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 29/12/12. Clear mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edge and leaves a film. Nose is pale malt, light fruit notes. Taste comprises light hops, pale malt, summer fruits. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, light bitterness in the finish. Ok drinkable stuff if a little on the bland side.

Quack-Duck (7959) - 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 (7118) - 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.
