hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2009
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Sweet, grassy aroma. Slight wheatiness in the taste with citrus and a mid bitter finish. Good one.

harrisoni (12675) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2007
Cask handpull at Knights Templar, JDW, Holborn. Pale gold, thin lasting white head. Slightly thin and ascetic, golden bitter. I was hoping this would be best of the lot and it isn’t. Yes, it has wheat, yes it has some harsh citrus hops. Good citrus beer, along the Harviestoun lines but lacks intensity and is a sub Oakham White Dwarf.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the Gatehouse. Golden blonde with lots of lace. Citric and floral aroma. Plenty of hoppy character in the mouth with a lovely creamy texture. Slight lick of malt for some balance. Lovely dusty bitter finish. A pleasant surprise.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2005
Handpulled at Babington (JDW) Derby. Rolls in the glass from milk to custard to lemon yellow. Settles with an ice-cream collar. Zips citric on your lips, superb controlled citirc aroma, itches all the way through to a dry finish. Top blond.

veronika (410) - SWEDEN - SEP 2, 2004
Yellow with a nice head. Aroma from sour cream and hay. Flavor is too sour for me, but also brings elder and notes from sweet fruit. Bitter finish.

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2004
[Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] A light yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is sweet malty and the flavor is dry hoppy and bitter while the body is thin.
