Svesse (8952) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 2, 2006
(Cask at Charles Dickens, Southwark, London, 26 Nov) Pale amber colour with small white head. Fruity nose with grapefruit, apricot and fresh earthy hops. Fruity taste with grapefruit, dried apricots and a nice hoppy bite in the finish. Nice and hoppy.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
(on bottle thanx MartinKubert)Diden´t know they made ales this weak. Clear, light yellow,white head. Itchy-bitchy pale malt aroma, no flavour to detect and a mild, nowait, no hopping in the finish.

Mads Langtved (2240) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
Bottled. Horrible artificial smell. Grassy flavour. Some hops and bitterness in the finish. A pretty boring beer.

Ungstrup (38941) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 28, 2006
A golden beer with a nice off-white head. The aroma is rather hoppy, which also lends it notes of citrus. The flavor is boring; dry malty with a slightly dusty hoppy presence combined with hints of citrus.

joergen (29611) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2006
Bottle. Clear yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts and fruits. Flavour of malts, fruits and hops. Thin and boring.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2006
a sim rate: (on tap at Battersea Beer Festival) Not much to write home about. Sweetish aroma. Watery lime flavour. Bitter aftertaste. Pretty standard.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2006
Cask Stillage at the GBBF, Kensington Olympia 03/08/2001 Golden coloured and slightly pale. Hop finish.

harrisoni (19536) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 19, 2005
500ml bottle from Real Ale, Twickenham. I had this years ago on cask at the Market Porter and remembered liking it, so I decided to buy this when I saw it. Golden with thin white head. Lovely hop aroma of US fragrant hops. Slightly sweet in mouth and could do with a touch more roundness from the malt. Then beautiful US hop finish, all citrus and compelling. A tad too gassy

pivnizub (10906) - Bochum, GERMANY - AUG 31, 2005
Cask at The Royal Oak, Bank (Lyndhurst): Dark golden colour, thin foamy layer, lacing; enourmous herbal hoppiness in the nose, moderate bitter flavour; dry, long lasting, strong bitter-aromatic finish; light bodied, but well rounded. Pleasant, spicy....

sayravai (4711) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2005
(Cask [email protected] K./Fleminginkatu 6) Slightly hazy, pale golden color with a small head. Very mild, slightly flowery-hoppy aroma. Quite sharp-hoppy flavor with some biscuity malt. Light to medium-bodied, bitter and acidic palate with quite flat carbonation. A moderately hoppy, slightly stingy real ale - nothing very interesting.
