Smithld1 (233) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2016
Cask tap east. Tastes like cucumber. Not as bad as it sounds but not exactly a gin and tonic. A curiosity. I wont have another but perfectly doable.

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
Cask at Arcadia, Leeds. Cucumber, grass, leaves, rye, peach. Fruity white-grapes - possibly NZ hops? So nice on cask too, its just so juicy and soft and drinkable. Tied for best cucumber beer with Cigar City Cucumber Saison.

Garrold (4781) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Cask. Bath Hotel, Sheffield. Sparkly clear, yellow gold. Thin, bubbly, messy, lasting, white head. For me the aroma is as much parsley and coriander, as it is cucumber. Either way, its very vegetal. Bready malt backdrop. Taste is mostly dry. Palate is thin. Finishes dry, with some earthy bitterness.

Cask at The York Tap. Pours clear gold, thin white head. Nice lacing. Light cucumber and malt aromas. Taste is faint cucumber, but definitely there, more light malt. Light bitter finish. Interesting.

ManVsBeer (9221) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2014
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Blonde with a small head. It does smell and taste of the vegetable making it a fairly interesting brew, although a touch dry in texture.

Ungstrup (35904) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2013
Cask at Borefts BF 2012. A golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops, malt, and rye. The flavor is sweet with barley, rye, and a bit of hops, leading to dry finish.

wildgeese (1) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2013 does not count
Very refreshing summer beer. A cucumber flavour beer shouldnt work, but like the mint choc chip stout, this works. sadly i had to be an adult and only have one pint of it...
