Ungstrup (33990) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 14, 2012
Cask at ACBF 2012. A light golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of yeast, hops, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of dusty hops, hay, and malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish. Boring hops.

From the tap. Light gold. Tight long lasting head. Fresh grassy aroma. Bitterness up front and throughout the pint, but never harsh. Good summer pint.

DnAuK (112) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2012
Pale and thin due to the low ABV. But lots of tropical fruit on the nose and a decent bite to it. Not much depth to the taste tho. A bit like a premium lager but without the strength. I know which I'd rather have tho! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2012
Cask handpull, The City Arms, Coventry, 13/04/12. Straw gold lacing all the way. Shaved lemon, lychee and vanilla tea aroma. Lovely soft black tea bitterness; sweet vanilla, lychee. Stood out as a very good beer, even towards the end of a fairly hop-heavy session.

fairwater (146) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
Cask @ JDW. Clear pale gold. Tropical fruit aroma. Citrus and more tropical fruit to taste. Quite bitter, and lingering. Woukd be a very refreshing pint on a hot summers day, and very sessionable.

leaparsons (9674) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Cask, Highcross, Leicester. Pale gold with a thin head. Aromas are peach and grapefruit with background caramel. Some sharp lemon with bready yeast. Flavours are sweet barley lemon squash with grapefruit, pithy bitterness. Dry biscuit with floral, spicy aspects and hints of ginger. Bitter and dry to finish. Tasty for its modest strength.
