reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2009
Handpull @ ’Sporks, Crosse Keys. Golden with a white head. Nose of sweet malts, grassy hops and a bit of fruit. Taste is much the same with sweet biscuity malts, nice grassy hops and some tropical fruitiness. Ends dry and bitter, went well with my curry.

EFC1878 (315) - Manchester, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
Another class act from the excellent Phoenix (they’ll always be Oak to me) brewery. Light gold colour with lasting head. Very citrussy on the nose. Satisfying malt body with suitable bitterness on the finish. A winner.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2007
Clear straw yellow body topped by a large white head that lasts. Hoppy, leafy, tart nose of mango, orange and bitter herbs that lasts and leave a bitter impression. Pretty dry mouth presence underbearing soft exotic and citrusy suggestions with obvious pepper notes. Surprisingly easy, yet complex session ale. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated.

Ungstrup (34350) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 17, 2007
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is mainly sweet malty. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and citrus from the hops. Jens! What do you know about beer? Love from Mes&Sim!!! (I guess the latter part of the rating is not mine - hmmm, but how did it get in to my note book I have no idea)
