albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, - MAY 1, 2008
Bottled. This hazy straw beer has just the sort of grassy, floral, and citrus flavours I like and is pleasingly lightly fizzy on the tongue.

Hippoman (408) - Durham, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Cask at The Market Tavern, Durham, £3.70/pint. A beautiful looking very pale amber beer with a smooth white head. There’s citrus and wheat in the nose and the taste has well balanced citrus sweetness, malt and biscuit notes and a crisp, dry, mid-long finish. Very good.

kerenmk (3483) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUN 9, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting at Max’ place. Thanks Grumbo. Clear light gold with white film. Grainy and sweet and bready aroma, bitter, mild and quite stale taste. Quite quaffable and a nice summer drink, with its light body and long, mildly bitter finish.

DSG (9343) - Tel Aviv, - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear golden. Aroma of stale malt, skunky hops and cardboard. Flavor has a bit of sweetish stale dusty malt, and some bitterish skunky hops. Rather light-bodied.

theprof (192) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2015
Aroma pleasant and slightly nutty. Appearance Golden with thin head but strong lacing. Taste tang of mown grass not my usual preference but ideal when the sun beats. Palate strong initially with bitter ripples. Slightly acidic aftertaste. This could wear on you over a session but it could equally provide a foul for a malty brew.

Cask - Golden with a creamy white head. Some fine lacing and okay retention. Aroma of grass, peach, hay and lemon. Taste of grass, hay with light bitterness and lemon peel to finish. Light body. Pretty nice but not terribly exciting.
