Cask - my partner was really enjoying this, although I didn’t really see the appeal - golden with a thin white head. Aroma is malty and lightly roasty with honey and nuts. Taste of grass, malts, white stilton, nuts and a faint bitterness. Medium body.

4.6% gold colour with a thin head, the aroma is of hops, the taste is all hops, too hoppy for me.

Frenger (367) - Derby, Alabama, ENGLAND - JUL 13, 2012
Off cask at Thomas leaper in derby. Straw coloured bitter with a pleasant hop taste and a bitter finish. Nice enough if not a little plain.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
This beer was tasted at the Bateman’s brewery beer festival in late May 2007. Gravity poured into a half pint sleeve glass, this blonde beer had no head, not a good sign in my eyes. The aroma was of grapefruit and hops. Four different types of ’high alpha acid hops’ have been used to produce ’ a wonderfully mellow flavour’, tasted of grapefruit to me. There was a dry, almost crisp aftertaste, but the citrus flavours from the grapefruit taste overpowered everything else.

Cask at The Old Dog, Herongate. Lovely straw coloured beer with a faint aroma of elderflower and a hint of grapefruit on the palate. Clean and refreshing.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 6, 2009
(Cask at Market Porter, Southwark, London, 7 Aug 2009) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus, tropical fruit and dried apricots. Fruity taste with citrus, dried apricots and generous doses of citrussy hops in the finish. Medium body, balanced sweetness. Very nice and tasty with a good hop character.
