Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Copper with a firm cream foam. Aromas are toffee and chocolate with raisins, pear and hints of pineapple. Some lemon with musty barnyard notes. Flavours are fruity malts with lemon tea and lightly tart lemon. Dry and woody with yeast to finish. Pretty good.

minutemat (4422) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2016
Cask @ The Lade Inn, Kilmahog. Pours deep amber, off-white head. Taste is leafy, some marmalade, herbal.. some off-flavours.. perhaps not in the best condition. Couldn’t make it past a few sips. Shame.

larsga (7307) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 1, 2016
Big beige head doesn’t last. Clear deep amber body. Wooden toast and caramel aroma. Dryish dusty wooden caramelly taste with toast notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft, slightly flat mouthfeel. Dryish fruity caramelly aftertaste with dusty wooden notes. Nice, drinkable, full of flavour. (0.5l bottle, from odd bins, Edinburgh.)

Heidbummer (260) - SCOTLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Pours ruby. Hints of toast and caramel on the nose. Good balance of malt, bitterness and even dark tart fruit on the taste. Drinks well to the bottom of the pint. Liking.

Idiosynkrasie (6522) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2015
500ml bottle. Clear, copper-ish, dark amber colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Nuttily, malty aroma, a touch of caramel and shortbread. Taste is dry, nuttily malty, some caramel, a touch of toffee, slightly citrusy hoppy overtones with hints of orange and orange zest; bitter hoppy finish. Nice.

zimbo (905) - SCOTLAND - APR 29, 2015
Not much on the nise but good thick dense off white head on crystal brown red. Lots of fizz and carbonic and thin in flavour and body. Metallic bitter middle and end. Not bad.
