Ungstrup (35892) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2010
Cask at NWAF 2009. A pale amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of citrus, leading to a dry and lightly bitter finish. OK, but nothing special.

imdownthepub (13833) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2004
Cask Conditioned at Hook Norton Beer Festival 04. Yellow Golden no head, hazed. Another yeasty beer at the Festival, really unfortunate as the beer has the makings of a really good bitter. Behind the flabiness there is a green hoppy bitterness.

DruncanVeasey (8063) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2007
The crown, Nuneaton. Misty straw pint. Citrussy hops, soapy satsuma, a gnaw of pencilly oats. Alright but nothing more.

Unlike Joeh, I thought this beer was pretty reasonable. Sure theres some less than impressive, slightly flabby, pale malt on the palate, but I wonder whether that was down to the condition of the beer. There was a lot of tangy, resiny hop in the aroma and that came through on the palate too. Perhaps a bit US in accent. Cask (gravity dispense), St Albans Beer Festival.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at National Winter Ale festival. Mid brown with a beige film. Lovely spicy nose with some nice fruit cake notes. Similar flavour with some hints of germoline and some odd floral notes. It works pretty well actually. Pleasant clean finish. Not bad.

[email protected] Albans BF. Malts are butterscotchy and a bit on the grainy side, some citrus tang in the finish, but not much.

Bottle. It was hard going drinking this one. Massive head that exploded on pouing.Slightly cloudy with a sourness that made it difficult to drink. This is one of the reasons why people drink Euro Fizz!
