Ungstrup (29667) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 10, 2005

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 5, 2006
(Bottle 50 cl) Pours a slightly hazy amber, no head and basically no carbonation either. Malty, slightly sour aroma. Light body with vague notes of nuts, but otherwise just sour, vinegary and plain nasty. Yet another bottle conditioned English beer gone terribly bad. Needs a rerate. 040706

oh6gdx (20842) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 4, 2007
Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is wood, slight nectar and some earth. Flavour is quite papery bitter with some hints of fruits. Leaves a tickling feeling on the tongue. Not the most exciting brew I have had.

Church Inn, Ludlow. Cask. Clear gold beer, small bubbly white head. Palate is light and smooth and semi dry. Mild fine carbonation. Smooth pale malts, light and semi sweet. Mild honey vibe and floral notes. Modest citric hops on the back end. Finishes light and semi dry, mild bitter linger. Not bad, pretty quaffable.

Cask Conditioned at Københavnske Øldage 2007
Hazy golden color. Light fruity aroma: white wine, lemon peel. Some malt flavor, high bitterness, aromatic enough; strange crossover between Golden Ale and white wine. Very long final. Refreshing. Dry.
