Pedrosnr (5) - Kilmarnock, SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2006 does not count
Handpump at Cavens Arms, Dumfries. This is my idea of a good Ale, hoppy and refreshing.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 22, 2006
Half pint pulled at the Corn Mill in Llangollen (Denbighshire, Wales), poured milky white, settling to a pale clear straw yellow with a pure white bubbly head. A clean grassy hop aroma - very lagerish (maybe hints of pineapple). A crisp dry palate (lagerish again), but also a flowery smoothness. Some fruit flavours and a dry grassy finish. Good for a hot day.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2006

omhper (19950) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2006
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear golden, light citric aroma. Dry and light bodied with soft mouthfeel, Light hop intensity. The finish doesn’t seem as bitter at first, but it keeps lingering forever. More of a thirst quencher than a sipper.
