tombyars (1589) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2011
Tasted this bitter in Tennents Bar, Glasgow in December 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale amber with a thin white head. Slight hoppy tang in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a digestive biscuit base with tart redcurrant fruit. Strong earthy hop resins impart a dry bitter metallic aftertaste. Malt just edges the hops in the short finish. An ok session bitter but nothing spectacular.

Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Amber looks with a decent creamy off white head. Fragrant aroma of citrus, wood and hop. Intriguing flavour that had further fruit mixed with herby hop, spices and a little sourness. Dry bitter finish. Decent beer that grabs your attention and your taste buds, but something a bit strange lurking herein that I couldnít decide if I truly liked.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2011
The Babby (JDW), Derby, 30/11/11, having a sit down after a 7hr shopathon with Octo and excitedly leafing through the 14 CDs Iíd just bought for £6.84. Deep gold and lacy. Aroma has some oatmeal and an almost roasted note (as spotted by Octo) beneath mouldering orange peels. Firm and tangerine-accented with a suggestion of cardamom..chocolate orange as it warms. Just another single hop Acorn IPA.

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2011
Hand pulled at the Shakespeare (Lower Temple St), Birmingham. Orange, with prim foam bosom. Smells like a bad bitter. A bit. Mmm, lots of flavs: big coconut, some bitter lemon, some milky herb, some star anise. Initially difficult to take, but ultimately interesting, moreish and nice.

bobinlondon (1288) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2011
Hand pulled cask at the Falcon, Clapham. Amber with an off white head. A good presentation of itís single variety hop with signature pineapple, sherbet and vanilla notes. Many people donít rate this hop but I find itís distinctiveness appealing.

Cask, The Grange, Oadby. Golden with a an off-white head. †Aromas are earthy, woody with gooseberry and melon. †White wine with light lemon. †Flavours are sweet caramel and biscuit with sweet, jammy gooseberry. †Floral with citrus. Dry and quite arid on the finish. Clean on the palate. Very good.

imdownthepub (13233) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Oxford. Gold amber with white head. Dry, bitter, hoppy beer, some grapefruit with drying grape note. Sharp, biscuity body, bright and really very refreshing. Long finish. Good stuff.
