Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 24, 2008
Cask at Guildford Arms, Edinburgh. An amber beer with a lazing orange head. The aroma is sweet malty and fruity combined with a light flowery note. The flavor is sweet malty and fruity, leding to a dry bitter finish. The body is thin. A bit boring.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2007
Cask at Guildford Arms, Edinburgh. Deep golden. Grassy and lightly buttery. Fairly sweet with medium body. Slightly hopier than your average Scottish cask ale, and also with a tad more bitterness.

harrisoni (13156) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2007
Cask handpull at Guildford Arms, Edinburgh. Gold, lasting white head. Typical Harviestoun beer with good citrus flavours from the addition of (I’m guessing here) Liberty Hops. Good sherberty hoppy beer.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Three Pigeons, Banbury. Gold to amber with light white head, sl haze. Thinnish golden ale, almost lager on the palate, but with some yeastiness and a touch of fruit. Lateish hops, but all very low key. It’s ok.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask handpull at the Guildford Arms. Gold colour with a decent creamy white head and lots of lace. Hoppy aroma with a little salt and pepper. Creamy malt flavour with lots of nutty and peppery notes. Bitter hoppy finish let down by some eggy sulphur. Tastes darker than it looks. Interesting but not amazing.

The Guildford arms. Fruity, lightly peppery hop in the nose. Taste has spicey malts, hints at butter, but alround good balanced ale.
