hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2007
Cask at Wetherspoons, Milton Keynes. Bright gold with a creamy white head. Slightly buttery malt aroma. Malty taste, but the overall impression was mild and woolly, not crisp and clear as promised.

Dedollewaitor (15777) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 25, 2007
Cask at C4, Odense: Clear yellow with fresh foamy head. Pilsner malts & citrus plus again a malty touch - wheat & again fruity citrus. OK smooth & fresh & a decent bitter end!

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2007
A Mes rate: Cask at Baker Street Spoons. Almost sherbert sweet with some honey. Long and rather nasty finish spoiled what could have been a lot better.

Ungstrup (35904) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 21, 2007
Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen. A golden beer with a thick light orange head. The aroma is sweet with a light hop note on a good malt background. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of citrus, as well as a good fruityness, leading to a dry bitter finish.

imdownthepub (13851) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Dun Cow Winter Beer Fest 07, Hornton, Oxon. Straw to gold colour with white head. An Archers beer that lasts the distance, thats original and quite good it is too. A little thin for its abv and quite sweet, but there are crisp hops and a pleasant biscuit malt. An enjoyable quaffer.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2006
Cask conditioned @ Guide Dog, Soton. Slightly citirc hops which are quite pleasant but fade off quite quickly in the finish and with just a bit too much sweetness from the malts creeping in for my tastes.

harrisoni (17712) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2006
Cask gravity at Red Lion, Snargate. I came to this pub to celebrate a little bit of history. As far as I am aware, the cause behind any petition I have ever signed, has failed. This one concerned the fact that South Central trains implemented a timetable which meant only the first and last trains of the day would stop at Appledore station, thereby making it more difficult for the public to access this National Inventory listed pub. Due to the weight of protest the train company has changed their timetable as of last week and trains once again stop at Appledore on a regular basis. This is a gold beer with thin white head. Sweetish aroma. Strong golden ale with some pear drop fruit hop. A bit more syrupy than Summer Lightning. Good enough but lacks the "I want another gulp-ability."
