Ungstrup (29164) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2006
[Cask at Volunteers Arms, GBBF 2005] An orange beer with a small light orange head. The aroma is sweet hoppy - somewhat light, with the flavor being sweet with lots of diacethyl combined with light notes of mango, leading to a bitter fruity end.

harrisoni (13276) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 Cask at Crabble Corn Mill Beer Festival. Very malty mid brown beer. Again does not do anything exceptional, a typical best bitter 2.7/5.0 Re-rate Cask handpull at The King & Queen, East Malling. Decent UK best bitter, nice butteryness to the fullish malts, decent earthy hops n nose and finish. VEry suppable. NO less than I would expect from an increasingly promising Kent micro. Even with 2 flies in it, this was good. Really well put together beer.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Rated on honeymoon at the Market Porter. Cask conditioned draft. Malty, hoppy and some apple noted in the aroma. Flavor was rather dull for this style of beer-mildly bitter and light hop flavor. Lightly tingly and some hops in the mouthfeel. It was great to meet SilkTork, Spiesy, duff and chris_o at this establishment! A fun bunch of ratebeerians to hang out with!
