Pint at the Spoons pub in Whitehall. A: Bronze, thin small head, hazy. S: Only a very faint aroma, but it was malty. T: Slightly watery, toffee, malt, cranberry, increased bitterness towards the end. M: Smooth, watery texture. O: Middle of the road, a bit too strong to session, not too much depth.

A bit disappointing if I'm honest. Standard aroma but rather bitter tasting and quite weird. Won't be having another one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hippoman (251) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
Cask at Water House (JDW), Durham, £1.99/pint. Pours very dark amber/ruby with creamy off white head. Nose is weak but there’s a slightly damp, fruity aroma. Taste opens sharply bitter,giving way to slight sweetness with burnt caramel and biscuit notes. So so.

Herbs and banana glavours are rather dilute but there’s enough there to compliment the rich body to make this an interesting beer. The bitterness of the three hop types makes for a somrwhat unusual but interesting edge.

The_Osprey (3841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - Cask at the Willow Walk JDW. Amber orange, small foamy beige head, sparse lacing. The aroma defies deScription in its lightness. Body is medium, smooth, touch of carbonation. Taste is soft malts, biscuit, watery liquorice allsorts, soft bitterness. A pleasant, drinkable bitter. Middle of the road.

ianwelby (778) - SCOTLAND - APR 15, 2015
Clear amber beer with a good creamy head. Light malt aroma. Tangy fruit taste but it doesn’t linger too long, settling into a bittersweet malt flavour. I wouldn’t want a lot of it but it’s nice.

TedE (592) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2015
Pint on tap at Palladium, Llandudno. Slight hop aroma. Ruby red beer with small tan head. Creamy mouthfeel with rich roasted malt notes. Finish is short and a little sour. It’s good!
