FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 30, 2012
Cask (Bell & Crown, Canterbury)
Slight tea aroma, later a bit acetic. Looks abit thin. Watery palate, slightly sulfery taste, otherwise a dull bitter. Slight acetic in taste too. A touch of citrus can’t overcome the acetic component. OK milky grains, but minerally. Clearly not at its best.

Scopey (14723) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 19, 2012
Cask at the Claret. It pours pale golden yellow, with a thin foamy white head. The nose is cheddar cheese, hints of sulphur and some grass. The taste is lemony soap, zesty, grass, touch of pepper and leaf, with a very dry finish. Thinnish body and soft carbonation. Very so-so.

swjoduk (62) - Bridgwater, Somerset, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2012
Draught at Seven Stars, Bristol, part of their Kent ale festival. Golden ale, fairly bitter with citrus flavours

pivnizub (10615) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 6, 2012
Cask: golden to deep golden, small white head with a good lacework; herbal to peppery hoppy nose, also a bit leafy with traces of vegetables and grapefuits; dryish bitter-sweet flavour, light bodied; lingering dry grapefruity and hoppy finish. A bit thin , but all in all quite good…

Cask. Deep golden colour with a small white fluffy head. Aroma is citrus fruits, some slight floral and grassy notes with also some crisp maltyness. Flavour is sweet and quite crispy malts along with some mild fruity and floral notes. Mild wooden and resiny notes as well when the beers warms up a bit.

On cask at The Native Oyster Company, Whitstable. Lots of citrus. someone else commented that its not unlike Jaipur and I have to agree with that. Its not very heavy and went well with food.

BeerSkull (1373) - SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2011
Sweet and floral hop aroma with hints of butterscotch. The taste is made up of malt and hops (citrus and grass), but very watery, with a slight dry bitterness. Nice and easy to drink but a bit too thin in the body. A beer suitable to be consumed ice cold on a hot summer day!

kschep (1707) - DENMARK - MAY 14, 2011
Nose is mellow hops, sweet earthy notes, milk, feel is medium, carb is low, taste is stale apple, dry hops, little sour aftertaste

EdKing (2586) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2012 Cask at 32 Great Queen Street. An IPA along the lines of something like Jaipur, but not up to it in my opinion. Lacked enough malt and hop flavour and felt thin and weak bodied in the mouth. Not bad, just not great either. I expect a bit more hop oomph in an IPA.

rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 20, 2010
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Pale golden color, white head. Citrus aroma, fruity, hoppy. Fruity, somewhat peppery flavor, floral notes, a bit soapy. Spicy hoppy finish.
