A beer with a flowerly, hoppy and fruity nose, although malt is never far away. Fruity hop is evident in the taste and there is a consistent bitterness.

The Paddock Chaddesden Derby. A good satisfying pint. Smooth, well balanced, pronounced hop friut, and sweet malt creeping up at the rear. A good pint.

Cask handpump at The Eagle, Cambridge. Clear amber with an aerated head. Hoppy, citrus scent with some biscuit malts. Quite carbonated. Well balanced at first, then a dry, bitter end. Some sweet roast nuts in the mouth and a slightly cereal aftertaste but hops predominate. Quite nice.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2005
Handpulled at the Ship Inn, Sheffield. Smooth stuff (almost too cold and smooth) and the first time in twenty years that I’ve had this (the good old days of Kimberley Ales from the town next to where I was brought up). And it turned out to be a pleasent bitter, nothing remarkable but a decent drop.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 17, 2005
[Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] A hazy orange beer with a thin lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet and OK hoppy, combined with light caramel notes. The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel. The mouthfeel is very smooth.
