[email protected] Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is caramel malts, fruits, wood, toffee and some earthy notes. Flavour is very nice wooden, mild maltyness as well as some cereal and caramel. Very nice fruity and wooden aftertaste with some mild spicyness as well.

Cask at GBBF 2011. Clear golden coloured with no head. Fruity aroma of hops and grass with notes of caramel. Fruity flavour of hops and caramel with notes of grass. Hoppy finish.

Bottle. Citrus is very present as are hops.Clear golden appearance with a medium body. Trace of spices as well. Refreshing and interesting.

harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2009
Cask gravity at Battersea BF 09. Amber, disappearing off white head. Grapefruit hoppy aroma, some toffee. Actually that toffee is diacetyl. Too much diacetyl. Poor.

yespr (48895) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
50 cL bottle, courtesy of Ungstrup. Pours hazy orange with a collapsing white head. Slight soapy and perfumed hoppy aroma. Fruity and medium sweet flavoured. Light citric to orange fruity on the back of the nose. Ends fruity and slight citric.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2008
Golden colored, little yellow head. Aroma is rich with flowery hops, even some caramel here, good aroma. Medium bodied. Flavor is also fine with this dominating flowery American-typed hops. Aftertaste is hoppy with American flowers still. Weird but good cask.

Ungstrup (38898) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2006
An amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is acidic and hoppy, while the flavor is sweet hoppy. Quite boring.

Mungo (2470) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2006
BCA (from Southwick Brewhouse, BBE Apr 06). Hoppy citric nose with slight piney undertone. Quite sweet with some tartness but little bitterness. The use of coriander seems wasted with such a distinctive hop presence.
