Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2011
(Cask at Cask Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico, London, 20 May 2011) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with notes of apricots, pineapples and honey. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, pineapple, apricots, biscuity malt and fresh grassy hops in the finish. Medium body, fairly sweet. Deceptively drinkable for its strength. Quite nice.

omhper (19220) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2011
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy golden, fruity spicy nose. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Honey, grains and hay. Surprisingly big and fruity summer ale, mild growing bitterness. For rainy summer days I presume.

On tap at the CP&K.Clear gold beer, residual white head. Dry palate. Some lagerish malt before a lingering dry and bitter finish. Meh!

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2011
Cask (gravity dispense) at Kingston Beer Festival on 13 May 2011. A strong golden beer. Decent condition. Fruity aroma - pears and apricots spring to mind. Clean and fruity on the palate. Slightly sweet for my taste. Very easygoing and easy-drinking for a 6% job. Maybe a touch bit short of presence for a strong beer but pleasant and enjoyable enough. Could be dangerous though.

Beersiveknown (2774) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAY 14, 2011

downender (6164) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2011
Cask-conditioned at the Seven Stars’ Hampshire Beer Festival, Bristol 2/05/2011. Golden coloured with next to no head. Sweet and slightly buttery, with some citrus fruit, floral hops and a warming alcohol finish. Ok.

MiP (13513) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2008
Cask at C4. OK malt aroma. Almost clear copper colour. Very small head. Slightly sweet, flowery hop flavour. Very low carbonation, barely enough for it to be drinkable. I blame the pub, though. Does not taste its ABV.

Dedollewaitor (13748) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2007
Cask at C4, Odense: Pale clear with no head or lacings. Sweet fruity flavor with some refreshing "spring" hops in between. Flat palate!
