Ungstrup (38138) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2007
Cask at GBBF 2006, from the CBoB entry cask. A hazy orange beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet and very fruity with hints of diacethyl and bread. The flavor is sweet malty with light notes of caramel and alcohol, leading to a slightly sticky and bitter end that also has light flowery notes.

2.9
Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2006
BItter, at GBBF2006, not too malty, not my style, but nice aroma of hops, foamy and dark a little golden.

anders37 (26824) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2006
Cask @ Volunteer Arms, GBBF 2006. Golden colour with a small white head. Fruity slightly hoppy aroma. Fruity malty flavor with some hints of caramel. Fruity bitter finish.

3.3
harrisoni (18983) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2006
Cask gravity at Rare Breeds BF 06. Hazy copper, with lasting beige head. Resiny hop aroma, bit of grapefruit. Smooth in mouth, juicy citrus finish. Yes, could do with another half a day settling, but still a pretty good bitter.

3.2
maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Cask conditioned - handpump - Falcon Fotheringhay. A reddy brown coloured beer with a fruity berry aroma but also a little diacetyl and toffee. The body is full and fruity, but again there’s something a little disconcerting about the sweet caramel/toffee flavours. Score 3.1
Subsequent ratings scored 3.0 and 3.4. Average becomes 3.2
