COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.

An unusual combination of fruity hoppyness with a dark, malty side. This beer is distinctly difficult to categorise – is it sort of a porter or maybe a mild? You decide!
Colour: Dark Ruby
Hops: Pilgrim, Celeia, Others

Rune (10502) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2016
Cask, half-pint at Organ Grinder in Nottingham. Solid lacing from a stable fawn-coloured head. Red-brown coloured body. Smell of chocolate and mild caramel. Slightly roasted flavours of black and brown malts. Hints of malty bitterness towards the ending. Quite alright (shared with Finn 20.02.2016).

Finn (6011) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2016
Fra fat på Organ Grinder i Nottingham 20 Feb 16. Delt med Rune. Ultramørk amber. Lavt litt tett skum med farge. Tett teppelacing. Spor av bær i aromaen. Smaken er plommer. Litt kjedelig.

Svesse (7600) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 21, 2016
(Cask at Craft Beer Co Islington, London, 25 Nov 2015) Dark reddish brown colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with red fruit, caramel and chocolate. Malty, fruity taste with notes of caramel, red fruit, orange peel and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Tasty and well balanced. Nice one.

SilverfoX (871) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2015
licorice aroma, looks like cola with a frothy tan head, thin fizzy dry licorice flavour. revolting

niquillis (2344) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2015
Cask at Lamb, Newport. Pours dark ruby. Nicely spiced, full body, good hop hit. Cracking and smooth.

Travlr (19477) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 12, 2015
Cask at Organ Grinder. Extra point for the name, I liked that song. Earns this beer a music tag. Maroon color, beige head. Aroma of burnt toast. Taste is burnt brownies. Decent body. Nice one.

FatPhil (12719) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 7, 2015
Cask (Pint Shop, Cambridge)
Nice chocolatey aroma. Brown husky aspects. Dark ruby, small tight head. Simple palate, quite dry and bitter. Not so refreshing. On the board as a mild, but I think this is more old-school porter. Palate a little harsh. A bit too drying.

MrBlueSky93 (507) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2015
Cask at The Organ Grinder, Nottingham. Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffe, light hops, some sweetness. Taste of initial caramel, light malts, toffee, some fruits, berries, orange and some subtle grassy, herby hops to finish. Nice.

Better than some of this type but it illustrates the gap in the brewery’s range: Guerilla standard no; Ape hardly; Infinity no. But good enough to watch Chelsea

jaghana (5234) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle 50cl from Ollie thanks. A clear amber red beer with low head. Nose is on caramel and hops resin. Aroma is on caramel, hops resin, honey, light berries, orange and orange peel, refreshing, light chocolate. For a porter the dark malt notes are a bit shy. Finish is more on grassy hops, more like an english bitter with a touch of licorice, nice.
