imdownthepub (9651) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2014
Cask conditioned at Fleetwood Beer Fest ’14. Copper with white head. This was a dryish bitter with notes of boiled vegetable, cabbage and caramel. Lasting on the palate. Just a little odd here.

zacgillbanks (1867) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle from Royal Mile Whiskies, Edinburgh. This is a copper coloured beer with burnt toffee and floral and pine notes, a malty red fruity body with slight woody finish.

allmyvinyl (2182) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 24, 2013
500ml bottle from Appellation Wines, Comely Bank branch. Pours a copper-tinged brown with a good, long-lasting white head. Inviting. Aromas has something floral, orangey, and pungent. There’s malt and spice in there too. It’s basically a Lush bath bomb, made of beer. In the mouth it comes apart a wee bit, but only because there’s a bit too much going on, with everything vying for attention. A very nice beer though. Want to try more.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 16, 2013
Bottle, a lightish amber with a nice head (small, but lingers). Both fruity and malty on the nose. Quite a fruity kick on the tounge but a peppercorn/hoppy finish, a tasty little number.

tombyars (1317) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Tasted this at the Fairlie Beer Festival@Village Inn in August 2013. Cask, gravity dispense. Opaque pale copper in colour with a thick foam white head. Poor lacing noted. Fresh green apples in the short aroma. Thin zingy mouthfeel with high carbonation present. Mixed malts give a weak maltloaf base with notes of sweet toffee in the palate. Hint of earthy hops giving a traditional Ruddles County like aftertaste with warm yeasty doughy bread flavours full in the mouth. Robust balanced finish with sweet vinous malt and hop resins break even in the end. This is a decent session bitter.

Rune (7361) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2013
500ml bottle from Nina’s Mini Market. Good looking with its huge, bubbly off-white head over a clear, amber-brown coloured body. Good amount of lacing down the glass. Roasted malts on the nose, hints of coffee. Taste of nuts, herbal hops and resin followed by a straight bitter finish. Pretty nice (hotel room, Edinburgh 10.08.2013).

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2013

Bottle 500ml. @ [ (Easter "Flags of many nations" Tasting) by Chriso - London ].

Clear medium yellow amber colour with a small to average, frothy, fair lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, bread - cake, light hoppy. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a a long duration, fruity, cake, bread, roasted notes. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20130331]

downender (5913) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 1, 2013
Bottle. Deep, reddish-amber with a big, tight, off-white head and plenty of carbonation. Aroma of bready malts, some sharp citrus fruit and a hint of roastiness. Roasted malts were more pronounced in the mouth, with plenty more orange fruits, and a touch of woodiness before a dryish finish. Good stuff.

Scopey (5542) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2013
Bottle at home. It pours deep amber with a medium beige head. The nose is wood, toast, varnish, stewed orange, caramel and a touch of instant coffee. The taste is earth, wood, good bitterness, tinned pineapple, resin, varnish, coffee, peppery touch and toast with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Nice level of bitterness. I’m pretty impressed with this one.
