Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2005
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2004] A red-brown beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel, while the flavor is of caramel combined with notes of roasted malt, lending the beer a dryness, but the body is thin.

Liberty Bell Spoons. Clear dark amber beer, good pale tan head. Light dry palate with fine carbonation. Tangy apple! Dry finish. Appears to be to young and thus a bit rubbish!

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2012
Cask at Penderel’s Oak, JDW, London. Pours clear brown with a creamy, light tan head. Nut much in the way of aroma, perhaps some faint fruit and nuts. Faintly sweet flavor, some semi-dark fruits, light rubber. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild sweet finish, faint fruits. Very bland. Not impressed; this is pretty weak.
