Leighton (21083) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2011
Cask at William IV, London, during RBESG 2011. Pours hazy gold with a light film head. Bit of cat pee and citrus in the nose, some tangerine. Light sweet flavor, more pee and some grapefruit citrus, some grassy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Semi-dry finish, light sugars, lots of grass and pithy citrus. Not too bad!

[email protected] William IV, London. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is very much Nelson Sauvin like fruityness. Flavour is sweet fruits, some grapefruits as well as some sweet maltyness balancing it up. Rather bitter finish and quite mouthdrying. Very nicely balanced.

On tap at Brodies BrewPub. Hazy gold beer, small white head. Tiny bit of caramel malt. in the background over which good piney grassy hops dominate. Traces of citrus and a whisper of sweeter tropical fruits before the bitterness ramps up through to the finish and the aftertaste. Another very nice tasting hoppy beer from Brodies, just wish they had slightly more body.

Svesse (8577) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2011
(Cask at Cross Keys, Covent Garden, London, 24 July 2011) Pale golden colour, slightly hazy, with creamy white head. Fruity nose with notes of citrus, grass and grapefruit. Fruity, hoppy taste with grapefruit, grass, biscuity malt and generous amounts of citrussy hops in a fairly bitter finish. Medium body, with a solid malt foundation and a touch of sweetness. Very tasty and nice.

sm89walt (2064) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2011
Cask - The Southampton Arms, London. Fresh on & still hazy on the pour. Golden orange with a disappearing, lacing white head. Zesty citrus, some wheaty-esque sweetness, tangerine and a nutty backdrop to the aroma. Similar flavour profile, good lingering lemon peel & grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body, crisp, zesty & spritzy with a firmness in the mouth.
