Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2011
Previously lost notes from GBBF 2006. Cloudy yellow. A hoppy almost perfumed pale bitter. Sweet finish. Very nice.

Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 2, 2011
On cask at Cloisters. Love this brewery but the retired Nelson Sauvin single hop and the Citra are my favourites. Great to see it on in Bonnie Scotland though! A blonde ale with a fair white head. Aroma of grassy hops, yeast and barley. Flavours of passion fruit, grassy notes with barley again and a little caramel. Light bitterness and a dry finish. Highly sessionable.

esox (1226) - Oulu, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2011
Hazy yellow colour, minimal white head. Intense, hoppy nose with juicy citrus fruits, a hint of passion fruit and light herbal touch. Bitter taste, balancing pale caramel malts. Almost too sweet. Bitter aftertaste with some herbs and light breadiness. Medium body, oily and low carbonated palate.

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2011
UPDATED: APR 2, 2015 On cask at The Wharf Inn, Welford, Northants. A great golden coloured summer drink with strong citrus taste. Very smooth and an excellent beer for it’s style. --- 08/05/13 - cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. Not as outstanding as before, however, this may because there is so much good stuff around at the moment.---- 01/04/2015 - cask at Post Office Vaults, Burslem. kept in good order and still a decent pint.

lusikka (7833) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 8, 2011
500 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina, Tampere.
Pours a clear yellow colour without a head. Aroma of very strong citrus and orange peel with grass. Flavour of bitter hops, grass, citrus and some sourness. Medium bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry, citrusy bitter, finish. Yet another pleasant golden ale from Oakham.

Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour, minimal head. Aroma of rubber & glue. Cereal resin flavour, bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

Bullit (4803) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 2, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2011 Cask @ 3rd Larbert Beer Fest. Clear golden colour, white bubbly head. Aroma is slight vegetables, hoppy, citrus. Flavour is hoppy, bit malty, citrus. Slight bitter finish. Would like to try this in bottle.

Miksu (5052) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2011
0.5 l bottle at Kitty’s, Helsinki, thanks Jukka S! Golden to copper color with quickly vanishing head. The aromas of caramel, green apple and tart resiny hops. The flavor is biscuity and caramelly with some green apple and resiny hops. Low carbonation, reminds very much a cask ale.

Slightly hazy palish gold beer. Soft to dry palate. Refreshing clean and light hops - citrus grapefruit. Faint sweet pineapple note before the carbonted bite of a finish. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Nice.

Cask. Swan and Rushes, Leicester. Thin white head, clear gold body. Citrus, grapefruit aroma. Bitter. Dry finish.
