Ungstrup (34023) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2007
Cask at The Cove, Covent Garden, London. A hazy golden beer with a thick off-white head. The aorma is sweet with light malty notes. The flavor is sweet with citrusy notes as well as light notes of wheat, leading to a dry wheaty finish. The body is thin, and all in all it is boring.

Cask@The Cove. Pale orangeish golden colour with mediumsized white head. Lacing. Aroma is wheat and some spicyness along with bananas. Flavour is wheat, some spices, slight bananas and other fruits. Experimental, but not too good. Like a blond ale meeting a wheat beer.

<i>Cask conditioned at The Cove, London</i>
Pale blond color. The aroma is quite citrusy. It has a clean but crispy malt flavor, with good citrusy hops and good bitterness. Pleasant. Underestimated.

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 29, 2006
Cask handpull at The Cove, Covent Garden with Yogi Beera, Pivo, Chris_O and Kook. Ooh this was poor. Not sure what it should be and not sure Skinners, who are normally pretty good, should have made it. Golden with disappearing head and the barmaid had not improved it by adding a slice of lime to the glass. Bizarre, odd and I can’t really say anything else.

bhensonb (13854) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Cask at the Cove, Covent Garden, London. Wonderful fruity, floral hop aromas. Amber gold color with white head. Great floral hop bitter over wheatiness. Finishes nicely bitter. Extremely refreshing.

imdownthepub (12919) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2008
Cask conditioned at The Cove, Covent Garden, London. Hazed gold with white head. A bit of nothing really, lightly malted with little character, a vanilla smooth finish, disappointing.

Rune (10928) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2009
500ml bottle shared with Arild, and as a partner to a fresh made summer salad. Nice and funny label design. Late straw coloured body with a huge, white head, quickly diminishing to a filmy layer. Discreet aroma of floral hops. Sweet fruity flavour and notes of mild wheaty malt. Well balanced, but average for the style (The Cove, Covent Garden, London 03.08.2009).

Clear golden with tiny white head. Sweet fruity aroma. Flavor is mild hoppy with caramel and citric notes. Ends bitter.
