Ungstrup (29172) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2005
[Cask at Carlies Bar, Copenhagen] A slightly hazy orange beer with a thin slightly lazing off-white head. The aroma is slightly hoppy and slightly grassy. The flavor is extremely dry, with absolutely no sweetness and no alcohol, which makes it very thin - like a Danish light pilsener. A boring beer - order only a half.

joergen (20589) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2013
Cask at Charlies. Clear golden coloured with a small white head. Fruity aroma of caramel, hops and grass. Fruity flavour of hops and grass with notes of eucalyptus. Dry hoppy finish.

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2011
Cask@GBBF2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, mild floral and resiny notes. Flavour is caramel malts, some wood, mild burnt wood, some earth and herbs as well. Pleasantly bitter finish, but gets a bit ruined by a rather metallicness in the aftertaste.

omhper (19239) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2002
Sampled cask conditioned. Pale amber. Aroma is dead similar to Swedish ’snus’, ie tobacco and raisin aroma. Rather light bodied, a bit sweet. Fruity. Just a hint of bitterness. Very flavourful for being only 3.8%.

Spoons Fest! But not a fest beer! Clear gold beer with a residual white head. Fresh hop bitterness but with a touch of sulphur. Lingering bitter hop aftertaste. Tiny bit of sweet orange and minerals. Dry.

cgarvieuk (14082) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2007
Cask Bow Bar Edinburgh ... Copper colour ... fruity hop nose .... juicy sweet malts with a solid hop base. nice enough but no real character.

harrisoni (13288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2010 Cask handpull at Westgate, JDW, Canterbury. Can’t tell whether this is diacetyl heavy or its supposed to have som much buttery toffee on it, but given everyone else’s reviews I tend towards the former. Butterscotch and hop on aroma, bit bready too. OK in mouth, bit sour with hop on finish, which is really quite drying. Default score 525213 2.7/5.0. Re-rate cask handpull County Hotel, JDW, Ashford. Loved it, I had two pints in half an hour. The hops were superb. The diacetyl wasn’t anywhere present on this. Just lovely hops, tangerine and orange fruit. Good hoppy finish.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
Gold colour. Vague aroma, maybe some caramel taste. A little bit of burnt electrical phenols, but also a lot of fruitiness and some minerals late. Plenty of character, but at no point coalescing into anything I actually want.
