Refreshingly clean, easy-drinking bitter, with a wonderful aroma of freshly-rubbed hops that carries through to a satisfying aftertaste. Also available as a cold-sterile filtered (not pasteurised) kegged beer

Vignale (2149) - Malmö, SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2010
Goddards standard ale. Ett bra hantverk men inget som stack ut. Typisk engelsk EKG karaktär.

wheresthepath (1593) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2009
[Cask at the Windmill Inn, Bembridge] Amber with a small, loose off-white head. Watery with a light lemony aroma and a vague, ill defined dusty hop bitterness in the finish. Disappointing.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 9, 2009
This is somehow the clearest drink I have ever seen. Simple sweet malty nose with the tiniest hint of hops deep in there somewhere. Nice and thick with very little carbonation which works well with its laid back nature. It has a nice balance but it has nothing particularly worthy of a note home. Lots of neutral cereals and a honeyed finish with some bitterness.

SaintMatty (5487) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 27, 2008
Cask (The Bell,Whitchurch) - Golden/amber in colour. Lightly hoppy aroma with some grapefruit and tea notes. Refreshing light hoppy notes in the taste with tea and grapefruit featuring again with a malty element. Well balanced.

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Cask at the Bargeman’s Rest, Newport, Isle of Wight, 5th Sept 2007 (thanks to the lads at Stainless Games). Strong aroma of fruit and wine, but a bit musty. Clear amber appearance. Rich, malty taste - reminded me of Wadworth 6X. Full bodied but short on the finish. Good enough but not great.
