wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2009
Cask, Newcastle Arms. Pale gold colour with a medium white head and decent amount of lacing. Muted citrus hop aroma. Flavour was sweetish malt and quite light citrus. Brightish and lively mouthfeel with some fragrant hop in the finish. Unspectacular but glaggable.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2009
Cask at The Oxfford, Macclesfield. Nobody knows why there are two ff’s. In fact, I’ve never asked. Golden, little darker than a lager but pretty golden with a nice lasting white head. Very refeshing and tasty, a real pleasant surprise. Light citrus and light hops with nice mellow caramel notes. Good work.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Gravity, Far From The Madding Crowd, Oxford. Warm copper, small but persistent clean white layer of head. Fresh grapefruit and honey aroma, just a little distracting blackberry/belltone, but a very minor thing. Fresh light hoppy fruitiness, fine textured spicy carbonation, nice gentle warm toast finish. Really impressive beer at 3.6%. (Would still be a good beer at 2x the strength.)

KimJohansen (10404) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2008
Clear golden with tiny white head. Sweet fruity with caramel and hoppy notes. Fresh fruity flavor with floral hops to finish it bitter.

gary07734 (500) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2008
Cask in York, standard blonde bitter pour, bitter finish, a little on the think side. Just about average for a bitter not much or any interest here.

asheft (2778) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2008
[cask] Blast of floral hops, almost like a fruity white wine, in the nose; white grape plus caramel--FRESH. Almost clear straw with no foam. Crisp and fruity in balance with a nice bitterness but a bit weak in the malt with surprisingly low hops flavour. Light body, low carbonation, clean yet weak.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2008
Cask at the Lincolnshire Poacher, Nottingham. A very good session beer with a light fruity aroma and a citrus and grassy flavour. Excellent as the first beer of the night but could fall flat against more flavourful ones.

cgarvieuk (18564) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 23, 2008
Cask at Thomsons Edinburgh ... amber colour ... light fruity nose ... musty fruity hop ... quite astringent... quite tart
