harrisoni (17278) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2009
Cask handpull at Three Mariners, Hythe. Gold, slight haze, hoppy aroma, bit soapy on the hops, but the hop bite on the finish was good and it was a very refreshing pint as well. Just above average blond ale.

berkshirejohn (5988) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2009
Cask at the County Hotel (JDW), Ashford. Straw with a thin white head; grainy aroma; sweet grainy flavour with some sour fruit; gently bitter finish. Not very exciting.

BeerViking (4140) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 3, 2009
Cask/handpump at the Lord Moon of the Mall, London. Pale gold and slightly cloudy, with a fine clingy white head and a spicey-hop aroma. Flavour is initially sweet malt, but then quickly turns dry and gingery, with a dry-bitter finish. Quite light bodied, and yes, reasonably guzzlable...

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2009
Cask-conditioned at Mr Foley’s Cask Ale House, Leeds 23/06/09. Gold in colour with a moderate, off-white head. Aroma of floral and grassy hops. Flavour started with a touch of sweet malts before some citrus hops and a dry finish. Enjoyable for the ABV.

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.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2008
Cask. Blackfriars, Glasgow. Golden color with a white head. Aroma: Citrus, sourishness, hops. Flavor: Hops, citrus, grain, grass. Very tasty for a 3.6% ale.

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.)

oh6gdx (25327) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 6, 2008
Cask. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is nectar, sweet malts, some flowery hops and berries. Flavour is berries, nectar as well as some sligtly sour wood and grassyness.
