Cask at GBBF 08 ... Golden ... light hop nose ... dry fruity hops ... decent enough but not exciting.

downender (6120) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2008
Bottle from Tesco. Golden with a decent, but short-lived off-white head and slight carbonation. Grassy hop, slightly sweet fruity aroma. Easy drinking, with some chewy malt, summer fruits and citrus hops, finishing off nice and bitter. Very good.

caesar (4890) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Cask @ Roebuck, London. Golden color, short head. Bitter. I have something written down on a note, but cant decipher it. At least it ends with: ’... in a british way’. Well, that is what I can say about almost all the brews I tasted in London this weekend :-)

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2008
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. A hazy golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of straw on a light malty background. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of citrus fruits especially oranges. The body is no wonder thin.

Bottle. Clear with a presence of hops. Citrus flavours are there as well which result in a clean sharp ale. Nice.
