Ungstrup (29484) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 16, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] An amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is very hoppy and sweet - quite nice. The flavor is sweet with notes of both hops and grass - very fresh, but the body is thin.

Cask@GBBF2007. Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is nectar, wood and some bitter fruits. Flavour is pretty much the same. Quite long wooden aftertaste.

Sampled cask conditioned. Amber coloured. Rich aromatichoppy smell. Light bodied, dry and fruity. Notes of hay, delicate light malt profile, excellent flowery, fruity hop flavour. Sparkling mouth feel. A top class bitter, remarkably flavourful for being only 3.8%

fiulijn (14990) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2005
Bottle Conditioned
Cloudy golden color. Very nice hoppy aroma, pine resins. The body is quite weak, dry, a bit sour; but it has a high hopping, aggressive, aromatic, metallic, with a pretty long final. Refreshing.

harrisoni (13879) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 28, 2005 Gravity cask at Red Lion, Snargate. Even better than I remember this beer. Full on hops and a rounded fruitiness and body. Really one of my favourite beers in the world when it is in this condition. Had it the night before and it was very good, but this had improved by the following afternoon

Cask. Golden-amber. Bubbly head. Spicy, with light hop fruitiness. Light body but a fair bit of fruitiness. Good mellow brew.
