HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2007
Sampled on my Cornish adventure from 26 - 28 January 2007 whilst visiting my friend and ratebeer fellow member Ruprecht - Yes! This is good. A pale golden refreshing ale with a clean taste. Sweet baby!

Sigmund (5193) - Tau, NORWAY - DEC 28, 2006
500 ml brown bottle, courtesy of Cardinal pub, Stavanger. ABV is 4.5%. Clear golden to amber colour, moderate but lingering head. Lovely hoppy aroma with distinct notes of flowers and tropical fruits. Moderately malty flavour with "dusty" / biscuity and citrussy hops. Moderate bitterness, fairly dry. Moderate carbonation, easy drinking.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 14, 2006
Clear copper with a medium white head, good retention. Aroma is slightly sulfurous, with some nuts and caramel trying to surface. Very lively carbonation. Dry hoppy flavours of pine/herbs and a bitter astringent finish. Just OK

thewolf (11193) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2006
Fresh aroma of american hops but still kind of sweet with a flowery feel to it.

StueyD (1187) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2006
A mid golden brown coloured beer, thickish white head. A light hoppy nose accompanied by a sweetish caramel malt aroma. The taste is bitter and hoppy to start, some fruit flavours that blends into a sweetish malty finish. (Cask - The 2006 Peterborough Beer Festival).

ALLOVATE (2443) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 8, 2006
Cask, handpump @ the Red Lion (I’m quite sure?), Helston, Cornwall.
Slightly hazy, orange gold in body with a stirred up, bubbly white head that drabbed foam down the glass. Short-lived burst of grassy, raspy hops, salt and yeast in the aroma. Flavoursome enough in the mouth. Quite a fresh palate dominated by tangy grapefruit, lemon and lime flavours with just a touch of pale malt and pasty yeasty notes that added body and smoothness to the flat mouthfeel. Gently bitter and grassy on the swallow but quite short in length. Very refreshing, light session ale. 5,4,6,3,14
Bottle, the Lizard point general store, The Lizard, Cornwall.
Lovely, bright sunny gold with fine carbonation raising up to a short film of white that left some good legs. Hint of salt and seaweed in the aroma atop some fresh pine and grass. Sweet caramel upfront in the mouth before drying out well. Light in carbonation showing off some grapefruit, lemon rind and palest malt flavours before finishing off crisp and short in the swallow. Fairly easy to drink though I found it to get heavy as the pint progressed. Nice. (50cL, 21/09/07) 6,3,7,3,14

Gethinbeer (2180) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 1, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2007 All to add is an excellent ale. From bottle. Good crisp fruity aroma of sweet pears maybe. Clear golden appearance with a decent head. Very nice smooth texture with a fruity taste. Not much left on the palette. Overall I enjoyed this beer a lot. A very good refreshing ale.

bluevegie (3057) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 6, 2006
Cask @ Cove Bar, Covent Garden. A rounded beer with a little grapefruit in the taste which wasn’t offensive, then lemons. Dull looking, orangey golden body with a reasonable head.
