yespr (46781) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
From cask at YNWA. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Mild fruity and yeasty aroma. Flavour is light floral and bitter yet with an interesting mix of glue and ice tea and Dedollewaitor coins it. Vague sweet malt base. Light rasted malt and bitter finish.

thewolf (12711) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2009
Cask @ YNWA, Kolding. Pours clear golden with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma has grainy malts, grassy and grapefruity hops and some subdued caramel. Low carbonation, fair and rather creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has lots of notes of green apples, grainy sweet malts and a dose of light grapefruit. Quite nice and drinkable.

SaintMatty (7443) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2009
Cask (Helsinki Beer Festival 2009) - Golden in colour. Malty and ever so slightly hoppy aroma. Fruity and hoppy taste with hints of citrus. It tastes slightly flat, but is refreshing, although I don’t think the serving temperature is ideal.

sdbrown1983 (3) - USA - MAY 20, 2009 does not count
Nice citrusy beer with caramel finish. Unsual taste, but very pleasant. Drunk at Babbington Arms, Derby 18/05/09

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2009
Cask at ’Spoons, Milton Keynes. Gold with a small white head. Some citrus in the aroma. Taste is sweet, rather grapey. Bitter finish. Yes, this was drinkable.

FatPhil (16689) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2009 Cask (HBF2009)
Weird plastic or rubber aroma. Soft light grainy body, vanilla cream. Simple and tasty. Finish is light maltiness and some fruity bitterness. (6-3-7-3-12=3.1)
rerate: (6-4-7-4-14=3.5)
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Lemongrass and slight ginger aroma. Pale orange, but persistent frothy head. Palate soft, carbonation low, smooth. Taste is beautifully soft maltiness, and lots of hints of butter and sweet lemongrass. I could dip artichoke in this - great! Finish is soft, salty, buttery.

anders37 (26845) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 3, 2009
Cask @ Market Porter, Borough SE1. Pours a clear pale golden color with a small white head. Has a fruity malty citrus hoppy aroma. Fruity malty citrus hoppy flavor with some weak hints of apples. Hasa fruity malty hoppy citrus finish.

fiulijn (20993) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 11, 2009
<i>Cask Conditioned at Coal Hole, London</i>
Hazy golden color; compact head, nice lace. Amazing Golden Ale, with the classic malt (here quite strong), hop (milder) and a light fruity aroma, it has a mix of cookies, lemon (or is it lemon cookies?) and light pine needles. In the final the malt is crispy too, and there is caramel and bold bitterness. Excellent.

cgarvieuk (25391) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2009
cask at kennilworth edinburgh.. amber ... pretty much no nose ... dry bitter hop ... realy not me .. some grapefruit ...

harrisoni (19023) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2008
Cask at Horniman at Hay’s. Gold, lasting white head. A bit startling with the fruit, like children’s lime sweets, bit of rhubarb and custard too. Not unpleasant, good condition, just startling as I say, some hop on finish. A bizarre lime grapefruit rhubarb concoction. Alarming.
