Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Cask at the White Lion, Norwich, "Boxing Day Expedition" crawl, 26th Dec 08. Golden amber with no head. Honey sweet and then dry & floral at the finish. Standard weight. The hops get out onto the nose too. Nice and refreshing.

HogTownHarry (6129) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2008
Cask. At the Pembury Tavern. Cloudy light amber pour with a small head. Floral aroma with very mild caramel malt and a hint of sourness - not a lot of grain here. The taste follows - dry, floral, light grain and a real lemony sourness that oddly seems to work pretty well. It felt slick on my palate, and the body seemed quite solid - while it wasn’t a particularly bitter finish, it really took its time, leaving a dry, acidic linger that made me quite thirsty for my next beer. A nice pint, for all that.

thewolf (11233) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
Cask @ Oakdale Arms, London.
Pours hazy golden with practically no head. Wonderful, crisp aroma, good pine, fresh malts and a little honey. Low carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour start malty, rather crisp, then gains a long, lingering, slightly dry hoppy aftertaste. Nice and drinkable.

Rune (8464) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2008
Naked, clear golden body. Grass-oily aroma. Plain fruity taste with dry hops, juicy malts and light bitterness coming along towards the ending. Easy going summer drink (Half pint, hand-pulled at Pembury Tavern, Hackney 12.08.2008).

(Cask at Pembury Tavern, Hackney, London, 28 Nov 2007) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit and fresh floral hops. Fruity taste with citrus and good amounts of fresh, floral hops in the finish. Fairly dry. Nice, but balanced, hop character.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Clear light golden. Herbal, lightly limey, certainly zesty aromatic hop nose. Easy-drinking and sessionable golden ale that appears quite flowery, very light bodied. Straight-on quaffer with no obtrusive points, but little character ultimately.

Gravity, Coalheavers Arms P’boro : Startlingly flavoursome considering the gravity. Pale, aromatic and interesting. Bold hoopy start with a malty finish
