Spab (2241) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
500 ml clear bottle from LCBO (part of Brewery Collection mix pack). Pours a clear amber colour with quickly disappearing off-white head. Aroma is musty caramel with some fruit and herbal bitterness. Flavour has caramel and fruity malt with a curious mustiness and a light herbal bitterness. Minimal carbonation. Ok.

Borresteijn (4541) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2013
Nitro tap at The Harbourlights, Noordwijk. Clear ruby amber colour, creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, confit fruits, hint of smoke and toast. Flavour is sweet, malty, caramel, confit fruit, nice smokey touch, tobacco, decent bitter finish. Light to medium-bodied, good mouthfeel for such a low ABV beer. Good.

A very nice smoky ale. Aroma is a mild hop and malt balance. Appearance is a distinct reddish golden color, deep. The taste is medium hoppiness with a distinct smoked malt flavor. A very pleasant ale.

Nice crystal clear brown body with also nice and thick beige head. Aroma is mostly malty, but hops are well noticeable. Tastes very full bodied, malty and has medium bitter finish. Good ale.

Luvystypotables (530) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Aroma is a bit like skunk musk, a dark copper colour, balanced taste, a bit sweet, slight undertone of peat. Finish is a bit watery and has a hint of scotch in the palate.

MichaelAwesome (3558) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
I really thought this one would be a classy and classic British beer experience. Well, it turned out to be a massive disappointment. A watery, slightly bitter beer with smoky hints is just not the right one for my tongue. Drinkable - nothing else.

McTapps (3558) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - SEP 23, 2013
Like expected, this beer turns out to be quite roasty-smokey, something in this combination and in being so far in a beer,is something I just canít stand. I mean, who likes to drink smooth blended smoked sausages in a beer? Maybe you have to be a big smoker to really enjoy it - me, as a non-smoking person certainly doesnít.... Anyway, pours out clear amber, low head, medium body. Nose of roast and malt. Taste of malt, roast, dust, smoke, sausages and woods. Awful unpleasant to drink, didnít enjoy it.

teddybeer (2162) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 23, 2013
Bottle. Coppery color with an off-white head with medium lasting and good lacing. Aroma is floral, earthy and malty. Flavor is slightly caramel, moderate dry fruits, slightly sweet with a moderate bittery and dry final.
