Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 2, 2009
Cask at the Lewes Arms, 8th June 09. Clear, classic amber look with a small white head. Rather watery, with a disconcerting green apple & washing-up liquid taste, that becomes more apparent as you go through the glass. Hops hardly figure.

Aniela (2304) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2013
Golden clear beer with a small offwhite head. Wet cardborad aroma and flavour, a strange kind of beer...

BeerViking (2290) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2010 Cask at the Prince Blucher in Twickenham 10/8/08. Light amber with a smallish foamy head, the aroma has hoppy citrus which carries through into the flavour, along with sweet malt and a slightly fuller body than you might expect for a light-coloured 3.8% beer. Crisp rather than bitter. Re-rated at the Brewery Tap, Brentford 14/9/10, nose a little more biscuity, longer bitter finish with faint grapefruit notes. Still a lovely session bitter.
