bluevegie (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2009
500ml bottle. Clear reddy amber body with short lasting head. Slightly sweet, light figgy aroma. Initial impression of the taste wasn’t fantastic but it grows on you somewhat. Light raisin notes and hints of grapefruit.

Bottle that I picked up at a small grocers shop in Potton, Cambs 04-05-09 Pours reddy amber, good clarity, not much of a head. There is a slight woodiness and also tea like flavour to this, nice easy going bitterness. This is a pleasantly tasty beer, that went down very well. A6 A4 F7 P3 Ov13 3.3

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2009
50cl bottle from Tescos, Stevenage. Very similar to the Shambles Bitter. Reddish amber coloured with a fast fading white head; malty aroma; sweet caramel flavour wirh a good fruity bitterness, more aromatic than the Shambles. Another good ordinary bitter.

[Gravity cask at Milton Keynes beerfest] A dirty bitter straw flavour. Pretty nasty, this was a bit of a struggle to drink.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - AUG 14, 2007
Cask, GBBF 2007. Coppery gold with no head. Nose is hoppy and yeasty with some alcohol and some grassy tones. Mouth is initially hoppy and then the hop fades to give malt sweetness. Some grass in the mouth to give fresh light palate. Quite nice.

Ungstrup (34360) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006, from the CBoB entry cask. A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity with hints of diacethyl and bread. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel and alcohol, leading to a slightly sticky and bitter end that also has light flowery notes.
