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.

An amber beer with a disappearing white head. The aroma is acidic and hoppy, while the flavor is sweet hoppy. Quite boring.

Cask@GBBF2011. 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.

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy with a tiny head. Lightly tart grapefruitish nose. Rather light body, weakly malty with fruity, somewhat tart notes. Kinda interesting. 030106

harrisoni (18821) - 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.

Gravity cask@1st Ryde Real Ale and Cider Festival, Ryde
Slightly hazy amber color, small off-white head. Light aroma has fruityness and citrus. Light-bodied. Odd yeastyness in the flavor. Some flowery notes. Somewhat restless flavor.

Cask (GBBF2011, Thursday)
Sweet and malty aroma, grainy too. Mid orange. Sweet rich and malty in the mouth. Malts remain with a touch of bitterness in the late finish.

Cask @ GBBF, 2011. Pours clear golden with a off white head. Heavy diacetyl and butter. Really off . .
