Reid (2094) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2013
22oz bottle from"Lifesource" in Salem. $4.59 Pours a dark,ruddy red colour with a large and thick light tan head. In the aroma its nugget hops to the front,herbal alightly grassy with a good caramel malt aroma to the end. Taste is a fair balance of the caramel hop and the hops with the malts just winning out. OK mouth feel. Nice drinkable amber. Good beer.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Dark copper amber, hazy, with an average golden head. Earthy caramel with light floral undertones. Not a bad amber.

Leighton (14433) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle shared in London - many thanks to Fergus! Pours unclear amber with a frothy, off-white head. The nose holds some juicy citrus fruits, orange, grains. Medium sweet flavor, a little grainy, with rindy citrus, earth. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Finishes with toasted grains, earth, orange rind, mellow tobacco. Fine.

UXO (871) - CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
Appearance: slightly hazy amber-brown with one finger of creamy tan head, OK retention and moderate patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: caramel malt, nutty, light earth, pine, and citrus. (5/10) Taste: mild to moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (5/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, bitter and slightly boozy warming finish. (3/5) Meh. Not really my favourite style at the best of times, and through nobody’s fault but my own (I’ve got to get better at checking bottle dates in the store!) this thing is about a year and a half old. Still a fair bit of hops in the flavour, though, giving a fairly bitter finish, but they’ve faded somewhat from the aroma. Might’ve been a bit nicer fresh, but I doubt I would’ve loved it even then. (11/20)

Idiosynkrasie (5029) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2015
650ml bottle. Clear amber colour with huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Floral hoppy aroma, a soapy touch, hints of rose hip, slightly nuttily malty background. Taste is nuttily malty, floral hoppy overtones, a soapy touch. Not my cup of tea.
