Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, - OCT 1, 2004
Cask Conditioned, at the Wenlock Arms, London.
Amber, lacking a little condition. Slight sulphurous aroma. Fruity with bags of flavour but not exciting on the palate. Must have been a good beer at some point in the recent past.

Mr_Pink_152 (2140) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2015
Tried at the Threekingham beer festival. But spelt with a c not a k. Golden colour with a small white gear. Aroma is fruity caramel and hops. The taste more nasty caramel.

niquillis (1910) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
On cask at The Huntsman, Cheadle. Pours amber with off white head. Fairly inoffensive session ale. Not much really going on to excite or disappoint.

Aroma is faint hops and swimming pool. Taste is watery. Something didn’t go to plan. Meh, it’s a blond ale, why should I care?

Hazy amber beer, good white head. Semi crisp palate. Fresh minerally malt, nicely balanced with light orange and tangerine hops. Turns fairly soft in the mid but finishes with a carbonated snap. Fresh clean beer, refreshing. Double the hops and it would be very good indeed!

swooper (1247) - Cambridge and Kladno(Czech Rep.), Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2012
bottle, nice u.s. hop(citrus) aroma but not as strong as sometimes is, but still nice. golden, cloudy, white foam, very bitter and might be little malt sweetness in the background. medium body very refreshable, but this bitternesssurely make you hungry .... slick feel, soft carbonation, good stuff but could be a bit better

Svesse (7033) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 9, 2011
(Cask at The Rake, Southwark, London, 23 July 2011) Pale amber colour with foamy, white head. Fruity nose with citrus, apricots and mild aromas of fresh hops. Fruity, slightly malty taste with notes of citrus, biscuity malt, orange peel and fresh citric hops in a finish with a fairly mild bitterness. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Quite nice.

Cask at The Babington Arms, Derby. Pours a clear golden-orange with a spare diminishing frothy white head. Aroma and flavour of light citrus hops, fruit and biscuity malt. Light bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty nice, I enjoyed it.
