berkshirejohn (6410) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2008
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Pale straw with a thin white head; citrus aroma; simple citrus flavour with an underlying bready dough body; puch bitter finish, and an aftertaste of powdered ginger. Strange.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2008
Cask at The Wellington, Birmingham. Clear straw appearance, with a short head and some suspended particles just below the head. Fruity, grapefruit scent. Watery, bitter and very dry. Lots of lemon, and floral in the mouth, with a hint of a sweeter peach on the end. Nice but the bitterness was maybe too overpowering.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2010 1)The Buck and Bell, Long Itchington 08. Anaemic yellow, slightly misty, nitro-creamy. Shandyish flat lemonade aroma. Hay, watery citrus, pleasantly mealy cornflake afters. 40% lager hops. No off-notes or anything, but Heinekens got more hop character than this dribble of tedium. Whats the point? 535211. 2) The Mill Hotel, Chester. Straw with a dense white collar. Soapiness, wafers, impression of corn, lingering bitterness and peanut husk, cream custard crumbs. Faint tropical hop aroma. Lime coming through; good leafy hop and lime on nose as collar subsides. Just needs the hops turning up. Solid. 373613.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2008
Cask at the Blue Bell, York. Aroma and taste of hay and citrus. A bit disappointing in its blandness. Not bad, but not great.

Ungstrup (36929) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 13, 2008
Cask at Bon Accord, Glasgow. A light golden beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with a light malty note. The flavor is sweet and more malty, combined with citrusy notes of hops, leading to a slightly bitter finish. The body is thin.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2008
Cask at the Blue Bell, York. Im sure Ive had this better before; I wasnt very impressed this time. Its in the style of a Castle Rock Harvest Pale or Oakham JHB but without having the strong hop flavours or satisfying finish.

motelpogo (7705) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 4, 2007

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 30, 2007
A rather yeasty offering of a clear golde yellow colour topped by a quickly fading white head. Citrusy hops make up most of the aromas interest as they spring up with grapefruit and lemony whispers while the grainy malts stay satisfied with their tiniest hay-like hints. Mineral impression lasts for a while in the finish where the hops take less room and leave more to a watery growing feel. Under average.
