Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2008
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, and so is the flavor though added a note of butterscotch, leading to a dry bitter finish.

oh6gdx (25464) - Vasa, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2008
Cask@Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Reddish ambery colour, mediumsized creamy head. Lacing. Aroma is fruity hops, some very sweetish nectary notes as well as some mild glueish sweetness lurking. Flavour is hops, apricot and mild peach along with wood and some mild yeastyness. Quite compex, but still not that interesting.

fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 17, 2009
Cask Conditioned at Akkurat, Stockholm
Amber color; medium head. Simple aroma, some apple peel and yeast. Quite thin mouthfeel, with dry caramel flavor and light tannins, also some yeast. The hops are quite positive, the lack of malt, of body and the presence of yeast are negative. Unbalanced experience.

harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2008
Cask handpull at The Artillery Arms, Ramsgate. Copper. Very distinctive hop aroma. That’s pretty good. Nice tangerine fruit, excellent earthy hops. I’m quite impressed. Very drinkable tangerine hoppy strong bitter. Good spice on finish.

Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2015
Cask at the Claret Freehouse. It pours clear deep amber with a decent off-white head. The nose is rich maltiness, brown bread, wood, toasty cereal, toffee and some over-ripe stone fruits. The taste is bitter-sweet, firm bitterness, caramel, wood, nuttiness, brown bread, rich tea biscuit, varnish and leather with a dry, woody finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Great condition. A respectable ESB by all accounts.
