Cask (gravity) - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Small & loose though lasting bubbly white head, clear golden body. Sherbet lemon hop, pale malt, some apple & lime aromas. On the tongue it’s similar again, dominated by a citrus bitterness. Some astringency & tang. Light to medium body, mostly soft on the palate with some carbonation & a medium length crisp hop finish.

weaselkenievil (1094) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Cheeky half at The Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Opposite the station for anyone ever visiting. Not sure why you would but there you go. Pale yellow gold with a thin white head. Boring. The same kind of beer as they always have on in there. Does my swede in. So many styles of beer and all he ever has is bitters and thin dry hoppy and citrus golden ales like this one. The obligatory hit of grapefruit before a bitter finish. Bah humbug..

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2011
Cask. Clear golden body, white head. Aroma of cardboard, citrus, settled maltiness. not so pale and clear lager. Flavour has malts. Some bitterness, but something seems to be wrong. All this cardboard and earthiness reminds me of baltic lagers.
