Rastacouere (6174) - 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

omhper (23735) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2007
Cask at Peterborough Beer Fest. Straw colour. Evidently grassy nose. Very dry with light buttery malm. A, well made, slimmed very drinkable session beer with a bitterish grassy finish.

FatPhil (14174) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 20, 2007
Draught (Cambridge Blue, Cambridge) Light gold, no head. Tinned asparagus aroma and caramelly malt. Some mushrooms and malt. Almost tinned tuna in places. Richly malted too. Anna says "tinned veg.".

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUL 22, 2007
Cask, Pembury Tavern. Fresh citrus aroma, cinnamon, musk. One of those beers that smell like something that would make nice soap. Mild sort of dull bell-toned hops give way to an incredibly delicious toasty note that lingers amazingly long. If the sort of muddled hop profile didn’t dull the stunning malt character, this would be something truely fine. And not bad as is.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2007
Cask, Pembury Tavern, Hackney. Pale yellow colour. Light citric notes throughout. Dry, slightly sharp mouthfeel. The body is, not surprisingly, quite light but this is a good, no-nonsense, refreshing, quaffing session beer in a fairly modern style. Obviously not just a one-off special, but whether it is now a permanent part of the range or an occasional brew I don’t know.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at the Pembury Tavern. Straw coloured. Hoppy nose with some tobacco. Dusty hoppy flavour with a drying finish. Basic but rather tasty.

harrisoni (17353) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2007
Cask gravity at Pembury Tavern. Gold, lasting off white head. Bit of butter which fades to leave a pleasing session bitter. Decent drying dusty hop on finish. Fine.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2007
Cask pint, Lloyd’s, Nuneaton. Yellowish haze with a slick of white suds. Hints of wood and citrussy hop in the snout. Delicate, aromatic Pale Ale with wafts of lemon and biscuity malt. Tasty-ish sessions I suppose, but a touch on the watery side.
