larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 25, 2013
Small white creamy head. Clear yellow body. Floral grape aroma with fruity notes. Dry-sweet, and somewhat tart, floral resiny taste with earthy mealy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, flat mouthfeel. Dryish floral resiny aftertaste with grassy mealy notes. Nice, but served lukewarm, which was a bit warm, even for me. (0.284l keg at The Knott Bar, Manchester.)

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2013
August 13, 2013 - hand-pull cask at Ol Fountain. Slightly hazy light gold with a solid creamy lasting white head. Light aroma On draught at dry grain and lush lightly catty pungent bitterness and light alcohol. Light body and carbonation, longish pungent alpha-bitter grassy finish. Another damned fine beer.

Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2006
(Cask at Marble Arch, Manchester, 28 July) Colour is golden yellow with little head. Nose is fruity with lots of citrus (mostly lemon, but some grapefruit as well) and a grassy hop aroma. Same goes for the taste: fruity with grapefruit and lemon, long bitter (citrus style hop taste) finish. Some sweetness, but well balanced by the citrus. Very nice, hoppy and summery.

jackl (4299) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Cask @ The Cock Tavern. Light amber color with no head. The aroma’s very sweet orchard fruits and apricots. The taste is light grassy hop, more sweet peaches and plenty of strawberry fruit salad. Light and refreshing. Zippy hints of lemon. Sweet, but very flavorful. Nice!

Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Cask at the Marble Meet the Brewer event at the CASK, Pimlico, 8th Sept 2010. Clear bright gold looks. Nose of grass and citrus. Medium, very drinkable palate with a very long aftertaste of pink grapefruit. Definitely competing in the same space as Dark Star Hophead. This is all about robust dryness and strong citric flavours.

BeerViking (2293) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 26, 2010
Gold with a big white head, lots of floral hoppy aroma, with hints of violet, then a crisp bitter and malt body. Well balanced with a long bitter-dry aftertaste.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2010
Cask at the Marble Arch, Manchester. Golden looks with a smallish white head. Juicy fruit and hop abounded in the nose and flavour which both had a real shine to them. Bitterness spot on. Supremely refreshing and glaggable. Just about all you could want in a summer brew. Only a pity we never had much of a summer itself up here in the North West (again).

evergreen0199 (1929) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2010
Cask at Cask pub and kitchen, Pimlico, London. Golden coloured pour with a slight white head. Pleasing hoppy, floral aroma. Tastes hoppy, citrus fruit, crisp. A pleasant well balanced summer offering from the excellent Marble.
