Aniela (2354) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 5, 2013
Cask at Oliwer Twist in Stockholm. Three different beers in one rating. They where all golden with a small offwhite head. Hoppy and fruity aroma and similar flavour. I liked the american style best, England in second place and New Zealand in thrid place. The american one had more fruity flavour and was not bitter. The New Zealand beer was a bit thinner than the english one.

AndySnow (3300) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2013
Cask at Oliver Twist. Tried the UK and NZ hopped versions. Golden colour with a small white head. Both have fruity, floral, citrus aroma. Flavour is fruity, hops, caramel. The UK hopped version more bitter, but both very similar.

gyllenbock (4652) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2013
Cask at Oliver Twist. This rating is for the version with East Kent Goldings. Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Very refreshing and drinkable with fruit, some grass, malt and something that reminded of honey.

rlgk (10655) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2013

hirigalzkar (2291) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 [Rating based on the East Kent goldings-version and a small sample of the citra]. Cask @ OT. This is how I like me Skebos! Really, really drinkable with a deliciously smooth body. Notes of mango, honey, cereal, flour and some reisin. The citra version is a bit more grassy and flowery, altough not as extreme as to be expected from a single hop citra-beer.

finol (2167) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 22, 2013
Cask at Oliver Twist. Citra version: Lots of passion fruit and peach, some citrus. East kent goldings: similar furityness but less citrus and some floral notes. Both versions has a nice fudge malt base. Very smooth and drinkable.
