yngwie (13104) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
Bottle, from trade with Rasmus40. It pours a clear, golden body under a dense, finger thick off-white head. The aroma is citrusy and generic fruity, with some biscuit maltyness in the back. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with biscuity maltyness in the back. Fruityness, citrus peel, some orange and a little touch of green pinecones. Medium body and pleasant carbonation, with mostly bitterness in the end. A quite pleasant one, easy drinkable and tasteful. 120405

OleR (4752) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 26, 2012
0.5 L bottle (4.2% abv), gift from yngwie. Thanks man! Tall near-white top. Body is slightly hazed, pale golden brown. Smells nice. A fine mix of of floral grassy, light citrusfruity hops, and toasted, cakey, light peppery malts. Light-bodied. Fairly sweet and buiscuity, freshened up by some fine citrus-fruity and flowery hops. Just the right level of bitterness. Rounded mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Moreish.

Osprey87 (1362) - WALES - SEP 28, 2013
Cask at the Rutland Arms Hammersmith. Slightly cloudy pale orange, small white head. Smell - slight tangerine, watered down ’Sunny Delight’. Body is pretty standard for the style, quite smooth. Taste - more tangerine, soft bitterness, a bit watery. A sessionable, balanced beer. Very drinkable but not memorable.

downender (6120) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2009 Cask conditioned at The Wellington, Birmingham 21/1/09. Deep, vivid gold in colour with a decent white head. Seriously subdued aroma of hay and apricots. Flavour bucked up a bit, with some sweet, digestive malts, citrus hops and a decent bitter finish, which proved to be very lingering with some accompanying floral and pine hops. Very backloaded.
