Miksu (4946) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2011
0.5 l bottle at Kitty’s, Helsinki, thanks Jukka S! Golden to copper color with quickly vanishing head. The aromas of caramel, green apple and tart resiny hops. The flavor is biscuity and caramelly with some green apple and resiny hops. Low carbonation, reminds very much a cask ale.

Slightly hazy palish gold beer. Soft to dry palate. Refreshing clean and light hops - citrus grapefruit. Faint sweet pineapple note before the carbonted bite of a finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Nice.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Cask @ ?Royal Oak Twerton or the Raven, Bath, forgot which. Hazy pale gold with thick lacy band. Sweet juicy malts and esters of lychee and ripe plum. Juicy beer. Sweet entry and middle threatens to get cloying until it finishes with a flowery bump. Quite nice, a bit yeasty but overall balanced.

kwik-lime (1290) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Oh yeah, this is great. Light, summery beer with good hop character and just the right amount of great citrusey notes to provide a good refreshing taste without being overbearing. Superb.

Great fruity aroma, good pale yellow and great head, great flavour for such low gravity, grapefruit overtones, an extremely refreshing and flavourful pint.
