Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2011
Cask at Bree Louise, London. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of butterscotch, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Cask at The Harp off Trafalgar Sq. Pours dark amber with a creamy off-white head. Light citrus? aroma. Flavor is very nice ripe light stone fruit with a touch of citric bitter. It’s just excellently fruity.

ndon (857) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Cask at The Harp. Quality stuff. Pours a clear copper, with a small off white head. Big banana hit surprisingly, toffee, sugary, thin in the mouth, but very smooth.

kwik-lime (1157) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2011
Good bitter this - fairly sweet malt, with hints of fruit, toffee and nuts. Smooth and easy-drinking which makes it good for a session ale, but far more interesting than most in that category. Good stuff.

Sigmund (4812) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2011
Cask (hand pump) at the Bree Louise, London. Copper colour, low off-white head. No aroma detected. Soft and smooth mouthfeel and flavour, nutty malts. Low bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Cask handpull, SIBA Champions Fest 2011, The Canalhouse, Nottingham. Copper-bronze, lacing white slick. Aroma of dates, figs, oranges, a snort of exotic spice: cinnamon? Flavour: not fully dried stone fruits (plums,dates, apricots), milk choc afters. Fragrant, slightly chewy...and a little bizarre. Nothing like anything else I’ve had today. Fair play to them. Liked this.

CamdenD (1056) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 7, 2010
Quite nice beer. Not terribly hoppy with good barley fruit. Average to above average session ale.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2010 Cask på Bree Louise, Euston 28 Sep 10. Rødbrun. Lavt stabilt svakt farget skum. Lovende fruktig aroma. Smaken er litt søt. Karamell. Forsiktig fruktig ettersmak med antydning til bitterhet.
