imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2007
Cask conditioned at Fellows, Morton & Clayton, Nottingham. Pale straw with white head. The best of the beers in this pub, bitter and dry with a touch of yeast and burtonisation sulpher. Quite flavoursome, citrusy, astringent and quite drinkable.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2007
Cask conditioned - handpump - Fellows, Morton and Clayton, Nottingham. A very pale blonde coloured beer with a thich white head. This beer was served with a very tight sparkler and took ages to clear. The aroma is a touch yeasty and has lemony citrus notes. The taste is citrus and yeasty also. A reasonable session beer but I would like it to have a better hop note.

Ungstrup (34708) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 21, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006. A hazy pale yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with a weird hop note giving it light notes of sulphur - is it the Pioneer hops? The flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of citrus, but also light notes of sulphur. An OK refreshing beer.
