duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 30, 2006
[email protected] Wenlock Arms, London. Typical English bitter, and better than most. Grainy malt characters, and citric hop bitterness, leafy, and lightly floral hop characters aswell. Nice, dry hoppy bitter, good session drinker.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAR 17, 2007
[email protected] Nice hoppy grassy aroma with a hint of citrus. Hazy, yellow color, off-white head, good lace. Light malty, pretty bitter and very grassy. Very refreshing and easy drinkable.

Gravity at Birmingham Beer Fest. An English attempt at a style coined and fashioned in the US (though based on a perception of a classic UK beer style). Confused?? Clean hops, malty finish, bready cleanliness. Clean and smooth, this is along the lines of Nogne EPA and has a certain relaxation on the hops, allowing the malt to be promoted. Enjoyable and quality as usual from DS.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a small white head. Faint hoppy aroma. Taste has a sweet almost vinous maltiness. Some bitterness. Didn’t quite work for me.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2007
Cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy golden with orange edges. Fresh hoppy aroma of orange-peels and grass with light notes of honey and peaches. Dryish flavour of minerals, orange-peels and flowers with subtle notes of crackers and honey Medium, leaning body. Long grassy and orangey bitter finish with notes of flowers and minerals. Great stuff.

JK54B (1602) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 28, 2008
Cask. Light yellow brown colour. Thin pale head. Not too much hops. A good thirst killer.

Cask at Proeflokaal, march 07, shared with Jbrus. Pleasant, bitter and bready malts taste, very mild, highly drinkable and satisfying, fruity touch too. Dry, moreish finnish. Beatifull, shinny golden color, with a white rim, lace leaving all pint long. Mild, light to medium MF, with a nice lingering bitter finnish. Biscuity, light caramel, malt aroma. Beatifull, sessionable special bitter.
