Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours a lightly hazy golden with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma has light oranges, very malty and a dose of wet dog hoppiness. Light and slightly grainy mouthfeel. Flavour is grainy, some wheat and very weak flowery hops. Not impressive.

Bottle, 4.2%. Hazy golden colour, very small white head. Good bitterness in the flavour, hint of plastic. Fruity aftertaste. Too much plastic.

harrisoni (15793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2008
Cask gravity at Rare Breeds BF 08. I admit that sometimes I take againse Welsh breweries for no good reason (except Otley and Evan Evans), but this has changed my perception. Gold with lasting beige head. Looks in good nick. Decent malt hop yeast balanced aroma. Hop and toffee in mouth. Very good nick. Surprisngly good flavours. Finish has some refreshing acidity. A very pleasant bitter

Cask @ Piglet BF. Gold with a white head. Pils/lager aroma, barley, malt and hops. Taste is much the same, malt and caramel with a dry hop finish. Blah!

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2007
A clear golden, almost headless pour that displays a pretty herbal, sandy nose with light accompanying tea flavours. Straight barley notes catch the tastebuds while a ricey sweetness grows. Simple and accessible, fortunately rather dry ale that does not have much going for her.

(Cask at GBBF, London, 9 Aug) Golden yellow colour with foamy white head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus and grass. Fruity taste with lemon and grapefruit. Long finish with citrussy and grassy hops. Fairly dry, smooth mouthfeel. Very nice beer with nice citrussy hop character.
