Chelmsford Beer Festival. Cask. Almost clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Smooth palate, fairly dry. Modest fine carbonation. Dry malts, slightly sweet. Touch of grain. Modest dry floral mid, slightly bitter. Spicy citrus, also dry and bitterish. Dry finish. Too dry but okay.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 23, 2011
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.

omhper (26039) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2005
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear deep golden. Pleasant hoppy aroma with hay and grapefruit. Sweet and fruity with rounded mouthfeel and notes of sugar and caramel, as well as plenty of grapefruity hops. Bitter finish with some pine needles. Well balanced and very enjoyable.

Theydon_Bois (21848) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2012
Cask at the Happy Man, Englefield Green - 17/08/12. Clear golden with a minimal white head. Hops, citrus and grass on the nose. Sweet malt, grass, earhty hop tones in the taste, quite farmy. Lightish body, fairly wet, but worked well for this beer resulting in a refreshing crisp finish.

harrisoni (19704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2005 Cask at Wenlock Arms, London It was difficult to pick a winner between this and the Brewers Gold to be honest but the Crouch Vale just about won it. Again a golden beer with a really good hoppy nose with hints of raspberry and strawberry. Good in mouth with a pleasing finish of hops and fruit Re-rate cask condition handpull at Yew Tree Inn Barfrestone. Really intense rich flavours on the aroma, hop and Turkish delight. Rich and sherberty in mouth with great hop and red berry finish. Superb.

rlgk (18843) - 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.

FatPhil (17511) - 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 (16529) - 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.

bhensonb (16122) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Cask at The Wenlock Arms. Lightly hoppy aroma. Light amber color with white head. Starts with fruit and floral hop. Malt is not that noticeable. A wonderful semi-dry hop finish.
