Scopey (8544) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Bottle at Bruce’s leaving drinks. It pours hazy reddish with a small off-white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, sugary, candy and some generic red fruity action. The taste is bitter, earthy, over-stewed tea, red fruits, mild astringency, pepper, sugar and light tang with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Quite a big black tea character about it. OK at best.

MrHangover (3111) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2014
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a murky brown beer with a massive off white head on top. Aroma is malty, rather faint, very hoppy, light citric. Flavor is moderately bitter, very hoppy and woody. Long bitter aftertaste, classic example of an Amber Ale.
