harrisoni (13276) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Cask at Ship and Mitre, Liverpool Had just been to the Baltic Fleet home of the Wapping brewery and this beer was everything they were trying to be and just failing slightly. This is golden, clear, fresh, refreshing with lots of citrus flavours and acids and hops on the end. Good in mouth with long lasting finish of grapefruit

yespr (30747) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2007
Half pint cask at Charlies. Pours clear and golden and with little white head. Aroma is slight floral. Flavour is medium sweet to dry. Quite fruity towards floral. Finish holds a fresh bitter and floral note. Nice.

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2007
Cask at Charlie’s, Copenhagen
Golden color. The aroma has some grassy hop. Balanced flavor, dry malt, good grassy hop, and a quite clear yeast footprint that improves it. Dry and a bit astringent. Good and refreshing.

sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Cask at Pete’s Waterfront (Bklyn). Hand pumped a slightly hazy golden color with a thin head. Some slight lemon in the aroma as well as grassy notes and light cereal (almost wheaty) malts. Nice clean flavor--straw to cereal malt, kind of wheaty tasting, with a slightly grassy hop finish. I think I hit this cask at just the right time--everything seemed to be in equilibrium. Clean, mild, smooth, no infirmities, just pure golden real ale, very poundable and refreshing.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2007
Nettle-accented leafy hop aroma. Straw hued beer pillowed with white froth. Grapefruit citrus bitterness with slivers of applepeel giving way to a long, smothering freshbread finish. Made everything else after taste bland in comparison. Pleasantly hoppy brew, but not quite up to their usual standards. Cask, Knickersby ’Spoons.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - DEC 13, 2007
Cask. Pours a nice clear golden colour with a fair white head. Soft bit flat mouthfeel. The flavour is quite fruity and hoppy with malt and some citrus. Well lasting dry hoppy and fruity finish.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 6, 2007
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton. Pale with a bit of citrus flavour and pretty drinkable but on the whole seems slightly lacklustre, especially in comparison to the Oakham Gravity I had immediately before.

anders37 (16441) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2007
Cask @ Market Porter, Borough. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small white head. Fruity malty hoppy aroma. Sweet malty hoppy flavor. Sweet malty finish with a bitter aftertaste.
