DruncanVeasey (8260) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2010
Clear 330ml bottle, back-to-back with Pannepot GR ’05 and Moor Fusion ’09. Can it withstand that kind of competition? Well, actually, yes it almost pulls it off. Bright, faintly hazing gold with a collar of white foam in the bottle, which is where I’m drinking it from. Lime, grass, rabbit piss (really) and compost aroma: oddly refreshing like a squirt of Jif in the eye after a slew of narcotic, sticky big sippers. Obviously slight, limey and metallic with dabs of butter and shortbread at the edges, but a grassiness and wholemeal malt character that partially salvages the experience. Chlorine, lime, Innis and Gunn sickliness and cleaning products to the fore. I sort of grudgingly admire the fact they’re marketing a clear-bottled, lime and vegetable-accented suck of wet air at the surfer market whilst discreetly sneaking a shred of quality under the radar. Good luck to ’em.

Christian (13773) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 26, 2009
Golden with a lasting hite head. Malt aroma with grain and caramel. There is a hint of fruit, and some diacetyl. Sweet and fruity flavour

DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2009
Tap in the cornish pub ontop of the cornish pasty shop on the corner of covent garden. Fantastic little find of a pub this as its got great views over the market. Alround rating: Pale malt with notes of green apples, but a sweetness and peppery character help it out. Alright.

BlondeGrim (23) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 5, 2009
Botlle/ASDA. Fresh and fruity nose, bit sweet. A lot of taste for it’s style, grassy hops, bitter finish. Good beer.

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 10, 2009
<i>Draught at The Cove, London</i>
Blond color, with a whipped-eggwhite head. Everything is very average; respectable ending bitterness. Forgettable.

johndoughty (5521) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2008
Bottle. Golden ad clear but lightly thin for its strength.Starts of with a very refreshing flavour that soon fades. Should have been better.

KimJohansen (10511) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 4, 2008
Clear golden with large white head. Sweet malty aroma with caramel notes. Sweet fruity flavor with caramel and malty notes. Ends sweet.

downender (8774) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2008
330ml bottle from ASDA with a stated ABV of 5%. Deep golden in colour with aroma of buttery malt, hay and grassy hops. Flavour started sweetish, with a hint of citrus and a short, bitter finish. A good lager.

Ungstrup (38242) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 5, 2007
Draught at The Cove, Covent Garden, London. A light golden beer with an off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with light citrusy notes, but also an acidity that reminds me of brewing cereal of some kind. The flavor is sweet with notes of brewing cereal and malt, leading to a slightly bitter finish.
