Svesse (8599) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2007
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 7 Aug 2007) Chestnut brown colour with brief beige head. Malty, nutty nose with dark fruit and dusty hops. Malty, nutty taste with notes of dark fruit on a solid malt foundation, balanced dose of dusty hops in the finish. Hardly adventurous, but a good solid session bitter.

HogTownHarry (6872) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2017
September 27, 2015 - At Cask Pub & Kitchen - handpull cask. Clear bright refractive gold, slightly bubbly, with a decent off-white creamy head (lovely lacing). Mild golden ale aroma - pungent grassy bitterness, light grain; taste is also dry with some sharp lightly acidic fresh hop bitterness, very light all round. Light body - heck, it’s a golden bitter and pretty solid, if dull.
