Ungstrup (38413) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2009
Cask at a Spoons in Manchester. A hazy amber beer with a dense off-white head, due to being served thru a sparkler. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, caramel, and grain, leading to a bitter citrusy finish.

[email protected] in 2010. Copper colour, small, but steady off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts, some nuttyness as well as some mild wooden notes. Flavour is nutty, caramel malty, mild wooden and some slight crisp maltyness as well. Pleasantly balanced. Good session bitter.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2003 Sampled cask conditioned at Akkurat, Stockholm, Sweden.
Pale amber. Appley, flowery nose. Dry, rounded and fruity. Lightly resiny flavour. Bitter pine needle finish.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2007 Appealing copper colour. A quite malty aroma and flavour, but plenty of tangy hop bite to offset the malt. Dry finish. A well made and well balanced bitter. 500ml bottle (bottle conditioned) from beersofeurope.co.uk

bhensonb (15756) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Cask at the Market Porter. Spicy aroma. Dark amber color with a white head. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Flavor is likely caramel malt, but it’s strongly overlaid with hottish spice - not pepper - ginger? Something like that. Really refreshing.

imdownthepub (15331) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2003
Cask Conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Pale golden beer with little head. Light fruity malts with apple, orange refreshing flavours. Sharp and acid finish, quite balanced, good drinking light ale.

bierkoning (13687) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2003
Cask, Black Bull Cockkermouth. Blonde like a Czech pilsener, slightly cloudy. Hardly any aroma, or maybe the wind has blown it away (I was sitting in a windy beer garden). Sweetish, citrusy and malty like a Crombé, but with less hop character. Grapefruity, hoppy aftertaste. Nice summer beer.

Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 27, 2015
500ml bottle many thanks to ManVsBeer. Clear golden-brown body. Lacing rings down the glass from a decent off-white head. Dry aroma of grass and mid-sweet malts. Moderate flavours of pears, herbal hops, and caramel malts. Bittersweet endnotes. Clean in the mouth and easy to drink. Accepted (hotel room, Bloomsbury 10.07.2015).

rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Cask at the O’Connell’s, Tampere, Finland. Slightly cloudy amber golden colour with a tiny creamy off-white head. Berries.... ? The flavor is hops, bitterness and berries. Not that flavorful. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle. Toffee barley malt and hay/grass hops aroma. Amber with minimal head. Moderately sweet barley malt and hay/straw hops flavor. Pretty hoppy. Very nice.
