Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 30, 2013
Cask. Pours an almost clear golden with a creamy, lacing off-white head. The aroma is fairly neutral fruity. Light body, low carbonation, fruity alright but also quite a hop bite leasing to a rather bitter finish. 300113

McNeillR (1240) - SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
Perhaps drinking as the first snow of 2012 falls slides it a little. Standard yellow larger search, thinking head and whippy creamy mash nose. Hungry initial palate a slim Werthers vibe finishing an ineffectual hum. Nothing special, nothing too session unreasonable. (Cask, Bow Bar, Edinburgh (Winter Beer Festival))

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 26, 2012
Very hoppy, very dry, very pale, nice enough starting point. So dry in fact it’s more like the after taste of a dry white wine

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2011
Pours a pale clear amber, quickly fading to nothing soapy head. Citrus and melon, little bit of biscuit on the nose. Mouthfeel is thin but nice, very light carbonation. Sour & hoppy, decent bitter aftertaste. A bit thin-bodied but not bad.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Pale gold with a small white head. Hoppy aroma, perhaps a bit citric. Limey citric taste. Slight bitterness. Fairly average midsummer ale that they happen to market with a winter theme.
