KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 25, 2010
Cloudy golden with a medium to large off white head. Hoppy nose with malty and florasl notes. Flavor was quite hoppy with pine, grapefruit and pale malt. Finished dry and bitter.

sm89walt (1758) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 22, 2010
Cask - Artillery Arms, Ramsgate. Poured a dark golden colour with a small, dispering white head. Subtle peachy note with orange and caramel aromas. More creamy, light notes of peach came through on the tongue finishing with a lasting pithy bitterness. Soft mouthfeel with low carbonation.

Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2009
A little hazy yellow/golden beer, with a thick foamy white head. The aroma of malts and fruits like citrus, with bitter hops. Some sweets. The taste is bitter dry with fruits and yeast. The aftertaste is dry and bittersweet.

imdownthepub (10326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2009
Cask conditioned at The Bell & Crown, Canterbury. Pale gold with white head. Quite a honeyed flavour in a yeasty, malty bitter, low on bitterness though. What made it was the pub and sitting out the front enjoying the atmosphere, an absolute belter and I was going to give it a miss because I found it on BITE not in the GBG, just goes to show.

MoritzF (8521) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 19, 2009
[bottle] Hazy, murky orange coloured effervescent hue with a big and stable blond foamy head. Fresh floral and citrus-fruity hoppy aroma with a well-blended pale malty sweetness. Bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a lively carbonation. Slightly yeasty and fruity pale malty taste with a dry, moderately bitter and quite short finish which has a light but still aromatic flowery hops character [07.I.09].

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2008
I thought this was shit, but the ratings are high. Maybe I got a bad bottle or I just dont get it. I found it flat and dirty. I didnt get the hops coming through, just a dirty, sickly mess.

goozen (2970) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle 0,5ltr: I like this English ESB-beer style, an amber coloured beer with an hoppy taste and a hoppy fruity finish.

bman1986 (173) - Broadstairs, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2008
Cask at Fleur De Lis, Sandwich: Hazy orange/yellow colour. Hop and bread aroma, flavour is more hops with a little caramel. Quite sweet but not overly. This is a really nice beer, very refreshing.

DavidGreen (2) - Castres-Gironde, FRANCE - FEB 1, 2008 does not count
Bottled. Complex aroma but predominantly hoppy. Crystal clear when poured, amber coloured with small head. The hoppiness continues into the taste. A very good drinking beer

MiP (13608) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2008
Bottle, 5.0%. Slightly raggy, citric hoppiness in the aroma. Almost clear copper colour. Small tan head. The flavour is quite citric from the hops, like the aroma. Some yeast in the flavour, too. The bitterness starts rough, turns more cleansing. Good mouthfeel. Good, but not as good as I had hoped.
