omhper (20606) - 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.

thebeertourist (5046) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2005
Cask at The Head of steam, Euston, London. Clear yellow with almost no head. Grassy hop aroma. Grassy bitterness dominates the flavour as well. a bit watery. Rather boring.

harrisoni (14701) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2005
Cask gravity at Notts BF 05. Think that this may have been getting a bit tired like me at the end of an 11 hour session on the Friday. Golden, no head. Hay and stale malt on nose. Some hop, some acid in mouth. End has dusty hop. Disappointing and not how I remembered it in the Head of Steam

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Light straw colour. Slightly floral nose. The taste is slightly sticky, and has a pretty standard blond ale taste, with a light, floral, hoppy fresh taste. I think this one lacks some personality, you get bored with it after a few mouthfulls, the same way you would with a mainstream lager...
