Yuck. Smell is not much, say sweet and grassy. Taste is sour sweet and not pleasant. Does look like beer though, so well done for that Glastonbury, fooled me.

Svesse (7775) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2015
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Islington, London, 25 Apr 2015) Hazy amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of grass, dried fruit, citrus and herbs. Malty, herbal taste with dried fruit, citrus, herbs (rosemary, thyme, basil) and a balanced grassy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a slight sweetness. Interesting and spicy/herbal. Quite nice.

imdownthepub (13084) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Seven Stars, Bristol. Amber with white head. Thin, malty beer with a dryish earthy hopped note, pretty basic beer, doughy hints. Just okay.

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle 50cl. Pours a clear orange colour with a good size head (especially for an ale) and good carbonation. Scent is very fruity and fresh, notes of citrus there. Nice bitter flavour with some sweet fruit notes there too, not too complex, nonetheless a good ale.

TBone (16116) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2011
Cask@Black Door, Helsinki
Honeyish golden color, small steady off-white head. Honeyish, a bit leafy hoppy aroma. Light bodied. Dry woody hoppy flavor with light grassy notes. Dry, sticky bitterness in the aftertaste. Quite standard uninspiring real ale.

mjs (6395) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 27, 2011
(Cask at Kitty’s, Helsinki, 20110422) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma was fruity and mildly yesty. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, straw, mildly sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and also harsh. A decent beer until the harsh finish killed the flavour.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2009
Bottle from Arden wines. JHB pale, speckled with lace and prickling with fizz. Sherbet lemon aroma with a nice underlying tang of fresh peeled satsuma. Soft, brilliant and soapy with floral and citrus hop, lemon zest, biscuit. Refreshing, if a bit aggressively carbonated and shandyish GA.

leaparsons (9779) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2009
Bottle. Golden with carbonation and a white foam. Aromas are fresh citrus with woody, yeasty notes. Hoppy with hints of vanilla. Flavours are biscuit malts with dry, fresh citrus. Yeasty and fresh with sweet grain. Dusty and peppery on the finish. Quite light in character but very drinkable.
