Scopey (7384) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle picked up at the brewery. It pours lightly hazy golden-amber with a medium white head. The nose is sweet, juicy, orange marmalade, brioche, creamy, apricot and pine. The taste is bitter orange, piney, lemon, grapefruit peel, salty edge, earth, light alcohol and varnish with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not as clean as I would have hoped for. Drinkable though.

rosenbergh (7361) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2014
500 ml bottle. BB 03/Nov/2013. From alesbymail.co.uk. Cloudy reddish amber colour with a tiny off-white head. Dark hops, moderate bitterness, malt and malty sweetness in the aroma. Not so pleasant bitterness stays. Maybe this would be tastier if it's a bit more fresh. Unfortunately this was sold past BB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
