harrisoni (17352) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2009
Cask gravity at Battersea BF 09. Amber, disappearing off white head. Grapefruit hoppy aroma, some toffee. Actually that toffee is diacetyl. Too much diacetyl. Poor.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2008
Golden colored, little yellow head. Aroma is rich with flowery hops, even some caramel here, good aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is also fine with this dominating flowery American-typed hops. Aftertaste is hoppy with American flowers still. Weird but good cask.

Ungstrup (34715) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
An amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is acidic and hoppy, while the flavor is sweet hoppy. Quite boring.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2006
BCA (from Southwick Brewhouse, BBE Apr 06). Hoppy citric nose with slight piney undertone. Quite sweet with some tartness but little bitterness. The use of coriander seems wasted with such a distinctive hop presence.

madsberg (11412) - Søborg, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2006
Bottled: Golden coloured. Hazy. Off white head. Sweet, perfumed and fruity nose. Flavour is sweet and fruity with a grapy note. Is quite fresh and medium bodied. Has a light bitter end. Easy to drink.

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy with a tiny head. Lightly tart grapefruitish nose. Rather light body, weakly malty with fruity, somewhat tart notes. Kinda interesting. 030106
