Ungstrup (38383) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2005
[Cask at GBBF 2004] A dark yellow beer with a small disappearing head. The aroma is very hoppy and sweet - and so is the flavor, leading to a dry finish. A nice beer.

Leighton (22301) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2010
Gravity cask at the Pembury Tavern. Pours clear yellow with no head. Honey malt nose with light, citrus hops. Flavor holds moderate sweetness, with some rigid malts, wood, grass and subtle fruits in the bitterness. Light bodied with almost no carbonation. The finish has a dirty, grassy bitterness to it with little sweetness. So so.

3.2
chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 28, 2004
Pale gold colour. It was very difficult to assess the aroma of this beer as there was a barbeque smoking away in the immediate vicinity. Lots of grapefruity citrus in the flavour. Can’t say I noticed the elderflower. Dry, but quite soft, finish. Clean and crisp. All in all, a pretty good quaffing beer - no great complexity, but does the job. Cask (gravity), Red Lion Beer Festival, Isleworth.

Theydon_Bois (20609) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2013
Cask at the Castle Tavern, Inverness, 18/10/13. Clear golden with a good sized white head. Nose is toasted malts, vanilla, citrus, sweet fruit aroma. Taste comprises caramel, summer fruits, vanilla fudge, toasty malts. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, in good nick! Decent GB.
