ManVsBeer (5494) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 2, 2015
Cask @ Old Gate, Hebden Bridge. Dark ruby-brown with a creamy, slightly off-white head. Has lots of darker but still sweet malts with roasted malt there as a hint in its taste, although much more prevalent in its nose. There’s some roasted malt in its aftertaste where the ale lingers pleasantly for long.

Holmen1 (3297) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2015
Flaske fra Holmens importkoffert, delt med Ovesen: brunlig rubinfarge medmkort skum. Duftet og smaker godt av toast og nøtter i en solid maltbase, akkurat passe bitter til at dette ble en fin start på bryggedagen. En nydelig brown ale med lang ettersmak.
