Ungstrup (29208) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] A light yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is of citrus - especially lemon, combined with notes of hops. The flavor is dry hoppy with notes of lemon and a thin body. A boring bitter.

Cask@GBBF2008. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is hops, fruits and mild notes of sap. Flavour is the same with some sour wood. Not very exciting.

harrisoni (13565) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Cask handpull at Market Porter, Borough Market. Pale gold with lasting off white head. Slightly ascetic and not a very nice gold/blond ale. Poor to be honest, with no condition. Some perfumed hop on finish.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2004
Gold colour. Aroma is vaguely floral, but difficult to get a handle on. Faintly citric flavours, but somewhat short of bite and not that crisp. The mouthfeel is dull and slightly thin. OK, but nothing more. Cask (gravity), Thurrock Beer Festival.
