3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Fruity strawlike hops. Some sweetness and full body. Mild bitterness to finish. Quite sessionable despite strength. Hop character is quite soft - wether this is due to them being green, the variety or the quantity used I dont know.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask handpump at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden colour with white head. Hoppy aroma. Hoppy and malty taste. The hops and malts are there in equal measure, balanced but not in a good way, they donít seem very happy together.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at Standing Order, JDW Ocktoberfest. Staggeringly average bitter. Pleasent enough but no real depth or character. Has a sharpness, supposedly from the green hops, but tasted more like it was just an unrefined bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale straw colour. Apparently, this beer is made with green hops. However, the hop presence in the aroma is modest. The flavour has some sweet malt a some hop bite, but itís dry rather than bitter. Overall, quite pleasant, but all a bit muted. Not the first time Iíve tried a green hop beer, expecting a fresh vibrant, zesty character that has failed to materialise although, judging from others comments, this may have more to do with the condition than the beer itself. Cask (handpump), Lord Moon of the Mall (JDW), Whitehall, London SW1.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Cask at Charlie's Bar, Copenhagen] The aroma is hoppy and grassy. The color is hazy orange and it has a small but steady and lasting head. The flavor is sweet malty to start of with notes of fruit, fresh hops, hop oils, and a little grass. It ends on a slight bitter and oily note, that lingers prickling on the tongue. A fantastic flavor.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask Conditioned at Falkland Arms, Great Tew. A Pale Golden beer with good head. Started as an experiment with unkilned hops. The green hops impart a sharp fresh flavour with citric notes and a dry peppery aftertaste. The malt is lightly roasted and sweet.
