tombyars (1332) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JAN 5, 2012
Tasted this in the Saltcot, Saltcoats (JDW) in October 2003. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale straw in colour with a thin white head. Light floral aroma with orange zest present. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malts give a strong citric flavour of tangerines and lemon. Bitter hop resins give a floral note to the dry aftertaste. Finish is rather weak and bitter edged. An ok session bitter and another pale type to add to the expanding Golden Ale section.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Cask at The Lord Moon of the Mall in London. Amber gold color with little head. Fruity smell. More hop than usual. Cool name. I liked it. Note from 10/21/2004.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2006
(Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy off-white head. Fruity and nutty nose with notes of toffee, orange and apricots. Fruity, hoppy taste with orange, grapefruit and a nice dash of hops in the finish. A bit sweet. The low abv and the great hop flavour makes this quite enjoyable.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2006
Cask (handpump), at the Devereux, Fleet Street. Mid brown colour. Smooth and sweetish, with a caramel base. Some dry(er) malt comes through late. All right, nothing very special! Didn’t make a big impression on me.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 13, 2006
Cask@The Devereux, Fleet Street, London. Slightly toasty wholemeal malt characters. Ever so slightly smoky, with touches of choc-caramel. Quite smooth, and drinkable.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2005
Another beer festival fellow added by the mexican. I have to say everything about this beer was just uninspiring, aroma, flavour, it just seemed like another ale, there ws hops and there was malt, but just not blended well together.

Nekronos (3633) - Xalapa, MEXICO - NOV 11, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 9, 2006 Too bitter, and it looks very good, but the palate can get a little tired of beers for the moment with this one. A little like if having orange on it. That looks good.
