UPDATED: AUG 14, 2008 500ml bottle from Tescos - not bottle conditioned. Pale gold with a loose white head; citrus aroma; creamy orange and grapefruit flavours; dry, earthy hop finish. DruncanVeasey (8643) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2008
Cask at the Flowerpot, Derby. Not as obviously citrus as the bottled version, this had a more balanced fruitiness.
Bottle from Tossco. Looks like a very pale lager with no visible fizz, but don’t be fooled. Aroma juicy Oakham/Crouch Vale grapefruit and mandarin, with added stalkiness and fine silvery hairs. CHLOROPHYLL. More of the same in the mouth, with the hop earthiness becoming more assertive and plant-like. Reminds me of Belgian ales spiced with juniper. Grapefruit to finish, softened with vanilla/peanutty pale malt afters. My enjoyment of this was unquestionably enhanced by the fact I expected it to be shit, but consdering it’s dead, a very decent GA with a seductively earthy/citrussy blend of hops. More Willamette and Galena, please. greenmanalishi (577) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2008
cask. pale golden with grassy/grainy aroma. flavour is crisply sweet, hay, something of a cucumber/citric mix (?) with a slightly dry, hoppy finish Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle. Light golden/straw with a mild aroma with notes of straw and malt. The flavour is very malty, but it also has light fruity notes and a dry citrus. I would like to try this from cask one day. 2142 jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - JAN 20, 2008

Grainy aroma with hints of citrus. Yellow color, small white head, fair lace. Light sweet, malty, bitter, very grassy, thinnish. Refreshing but boring.
Cask @ Liverpool St. Sporks. Opaque gold with a thin white head. Malt, banana, orange and grassy hops. Slightly buttery malt with some bitter grassy hops. Seemed a tad unbalanced to me, standard fare... HogTownHarry (7401) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - SEP 17, 2007
Cask. At The Harp, Covent Garden, London. Clear gold pour, foamy white head. Sweet, light grain aroma floral, borderline perfume hops. Taste - VERY dry, crisp, with light fresh cereal grain malt, sun-dried straw, bitterness from perfumey and dried grassy hops, this has a very nice bitter finish. Crisp, light body, solidly astringent, has a longish dry grassy finish. This is an excellent quencher, simple but quite sophisticated. DownsouthGav (601) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2007
Hoppy nose. Cloudy golden hue, small frothy head. Nicely hopped with some complexity between a dry- sweet- dry run. Soft and weighty mouthfeel. A very nice session beer. downender (9089) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2007
Gravity dispense at the Miners’ Arms Summer Beer Festival, St Werburgh’s Bristol 6/8/07. Bright gold with a moderate white head. Aroma of grassy hops and hay. Flavour started sweet before the hops kicked in. Marred by a strange aftertaste which reminded me of cigarette ash. dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2007
Clear amber. Hint of flowers in the scent, but not much. Quite a bit of carbonation. Very good mouthfeel and a strong bitterness. Tastes of hop and pink grapefruit marred by a slightly sulphuric end.
