fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2005
Cask Conditioned
Blond color. Very light aroma. Light taste, but a bit malty, with a reasonable hopping. Decent.

Sobchak (131) - Skagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2005
(Cask, The Wharf, Aalborg) - Light straw colour. Slightly floral nose. The taste is slightly sticky, and has a pretty standard blond ale taste, with a light, floral, hoppy fresh taste. I think this one lacks some personality, you get bored with it after a few mouthfulls, the same way you would with a mainstream lager...

Ungstrup (38141) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2005
[Cask at Charlies Bar, Copenhagen] A hazy light yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet and lightly hoppy. The flavor is sweet, lightly hoppy and lightly flowery. A really good thirst quencher on an Indian Summer day in Copenhagen.

tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2005
Floral, citrus hops and biscuity malts in the aroma. Clear, yellow-golden body is topped by a decent and lasting, white head that coats the glass. Floral, citrus hops and biscuity malt flavours with well balanced bitterness in the finish. Light refreshing body with moderate carbonation. Cask sampled at GBBF 2005.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2005
[email protected] Beer Festival, London. Initially malty, but finishes quite dry and hoppy, citric, lightly floral. Lightly lactic off sourness which put me off, tastes a bit funny.

2.6
DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2005
Cask conditioned and on hand pump at The Exeter on 19/02/05. Pale straw brown colour. Bit washy, not overly dry, pleanty of hops. I’ve had this before & it was better...

2.9
DanielBrown (4527) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2005
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham, "Dry as the desert" apparently - err actually, not that dry. Very soft, watery finish. Malty really and if being polite, it’s very subtle; if being impolite, it’s plain.

2.7
maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2004
Cask conditioned - handpump - Head Of Steam Euston (RB London Xmas Crawl 2004). A hazy appearance and a green flavour to this golden beer was not an auspicious start to the day for me. There was some hop in the background of the aroma and a slight apple taste to the beer. Not in the correct condition but there were signs the beer would be better.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 9, 2004
Cask conditioned at the Head of Steam, Euston Station, London
Served before it was ready, slightly cloudy. Lagery look to it, over carbonated (again, served before it was ready). Forgetting that this was served too early this is a poor golden ale with some sharpness in there. There is a lot better.
Sampled on the Ratebeer London Meetup & Pub Crawl, December 2004. With Silktork, Chris_o & Maeib

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 Cask at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Golden coloured with reasonable white head. Fruity aroma. Fruity taste, with nice underlying malts and dry hops. Medium to thin bodied. Excellent summer session beer.
