Pale gold with a light haze frog spawn head. Fuddy cereal straw head a tad metallic but heavily hopped English style. Lovely wholesome cereals lovely toastiness mingling with lightly citric hops and a sweet toffee fudge finish. A really great session that drys the top of the mouth a tiny bit too much but is otherwise perfect.

Golden with a small white head. Fruity aroma with pear and just a hint of butter. Dry and fruity with good hop flavour, and a lasting bitterness

On cask at The Carpenters Arms, Marble Arch. Hazy golden with a smallish white head. Earthy and fruity hop aroma and flavours. Quite bitter. A good bitter.

Clear light to medium yellow orange color with a small to average, fizzy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, dusty, light to moderate hoppy, grapefruit. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. (070808)

GBBF, Trade Day, 2008 Cask. Mmmm. Very nice. Smooth and gently sweet and juicy malt with a pleasing hop zing. Lovely beer. My last of GBBF 2008.

MiP (15972) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2008
Cask, 4.4% at GBBF08. The flavour is slightly peppery as if it were stronger in alcohol. Other than that, there is nothing to say.

Cask (GBBF 2008) - Golden in colour. Light hoppy aroma with a bit of malt. Watery and thin at first, you can then detect some grapefruit and lemon. Fairly refreshing but has the potential to be much better.

KimJohansen (10497) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - AUG 7, 2008
Clear golden with tiny white head. Sweet aroma. Sweet fruity flavor with a mild bitter end.

3.3
oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2008
Cask. Golden colour with small head, which leaves some lace. Flavour is citrusy and quite much of caramel and mild notes of not-too-sweet honey. Flavour is quite much the same along with some mild spicyness coming in as well as a nice grassy bitter dry finish.
