ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2008
Bottled. Pours out in a clear deep golden colour with a small fluffy lasting head. Dryish, fresh hop aroma of grapefruit, lemon and grains. Light-bodied and really quaff-able with plenty of lemon-zest and grapefruit with a grainy maltiness in the shadows. Dryish but not overly bitter finish of grapefruit, green apples, minerals and lemon-zest. Really nice UK Golden ale with plenty of hops and possesses a ridiculousy high drinkability

Tranquillity (2335) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Cask. Weird fruity aroma: can’t find anything particular. Taste some hops and grapefruit. Not too full.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2008
Cask at the Approach, Nottingham. JHB is a thoroughly delightful beer with a pale golden colour, fresh floral aroma, and really full flavour for the ABV of citrus fruit and bitter hops. Another favourite of mine.
