Ungstrup (30938) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2007. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel, and so is the flavor.

Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. Gold, lasting off white head. Lovely fresh hop aroma, grapefruit, but restrained. Really lovely in mouth. Good condition. Fragrant hop. Nice beer, malts are fine, a little earthy on the end.

Leighton (14694) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours perfectly clear gold with a stupidly tight, white cream head. Pleasant though mild aroma, pale malts, light dried citrus and lemon in particular, some hay. Light sweet flavor, lightl citrus fruits, mellow bitterness, straw, lots of tasty, dried pale malts.ight bodied with fine carbonation. Clean, lightly dry finish, some dirty hay, nips of tangerine. Very nicely balanced APA.

Theydon_Bois (13377) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2013
Gravity dispense at the Happy Man Autumn BF, Englefield Green, 11/10/13. Clear golden with a thin off white head. Nose is toasty malt, citurs, orange, a little subdued. Taste carries more depth, orange pith, toasty malts, lemon rind. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, dry grassy bitterness in the finish. Not enough hop presence for an APA - good old golden blonde in my book, an average to drinkable one at that.
