Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2004
[Cask conditioned] Golden brown coloured. Very boring and weak. Sweet with some hops in the finish. Strange unpleasant notes.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2004
Cask Conditioned at The White Horse, Whitwell, I.o.W. Yellow gold beer with thin head. Sweetish buttery smooth beer with a peachy fruitiness. Few hop notes.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2003
Pale brown. Gale's beers often have a reputation for malty sweetness, even in the bitters, but this one despite having some malt, is much fresher than the Gales norm. A little sweetness at the start, quite fruity, but hops dominate here. Dry finish. Although the Gales website suggest this beer is designed to be served through a sprinkler, with a big head, the CAMRA tasting notes suggest otherwise. The version I tried was handpumped, but not through a sprinkler. Quite well balanced and very drinkable, but nothing exceptional. The Speaker, London SW1, July 2003

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2003
A yellow beer with no head and no aroma. The flavor is slightly sweet and slightly bitter which leaves a very good balanced beer. A nice bitter.

SilkTork (5542) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2003
Stewed hops in the bottle. Some malt lazily struggles to overcome the damp cardboard of this dead and dead useless beer.

Cask-Conditioned. Honey-coloured. Hoppy bitterness prevails over all else.
