Finn (4032) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2008
On cask at The Golden Lion, York 30 Apr 08.Golden colored. A decent creamy head that lasted.A complex - but modest fruity aroma. A decent fruity flavor with bitterness in the finish. Well rounded.

sleepylopes (318) - New York, USA - MAR 24, 2008
A winner. Smells like teen spirit... No mild bitter and hop. Small to medium bubble head atop gold clear body. Annise ulta bitter finish after light malt and bitter drinking pull. Notes of fruit skins and boil.

DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2008
UPDATED: APR 20, 2010 CASK: The Crown, Nuneaton. Pale, misty and headless. Lychee and mandarin hop notes, too much quinine sting. Astringent back-of-the-tongue bitterness and not enough else. OK but tedious. 535212=2.7. BC: Bottle(s) from Arden Wines. Tastes like lemonade on top of a Duvel, initially... Pours beaten gold with a bleached white collar. Sherbet and pale biscuity malt in the aroma, overlaid with greenery; lemonade and Bombay Sapphire on the palate- citrusy botanicals, fizz, faint rubber, good sting of hop to finish. Afters nut husk and crackerbread. Duvel and tonic? No small compliment. 373714=3.4.

Rastacouere (6123) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2007
Hazy golden ale with a lacy sparkler’s white head. Kinda wrong smelling with an off sourness in there that is out of place. Getting old I presume as it is quite metallic and its minerals are getting obtrusive. Biting lemony hops feel dull and not bright at all while they get overtaken by appley overtones. Poor condition.

cgarvieuk (14082) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2007
Golden colured ale, with a hoppy aroma, and a light fruityness with little grapefruit and and a bitter finish

dmradus (227) - Ithaca, New York, USA - FEB 22, 2007
Cask at Weatherspoon’s Postern Gate, York. Cloudy yellow verging on orange with a dense white head that laces considerably. Aroma is citrus predominate, with lemon and orange taking the stand. Slight caramel and toffee in the nose and in the taste as well, with lemon, grass, and an overarching fruity sweetness. Slightly sour in the finish, a bit watery.

thebeertourist (4774) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 19, 2007
Bottle. Clear golden colour, big white head. Grassy and citrus hop aroma with a bit of caramel. Caramel flavours nicely balanced by grassy hops, overall very bitter. Light body. A decent pale ale.
