Mine’s a wee bit past the date on the bottle but it has been refrigerated the whole time! Going the whole hog and cracking it with a dozen oysters hand picked less than 20 hours ago by a friend. It’s a deep rich orange with a little flabby head lolling around on top. A light herbal and lemony (and decidedly wet) hop character plays amid roasted malts light, appley fruit aromas on the nose. Fruity in the mouth with a savoury, almost rye-like peppery note. The finish is a pleasant balance of light bitterness, fresh hay and tickles of toffee. It was pretty tasty, however we totally opened a mad river porter part way through the oysters.

Bottle from brewdog.com. Very malty compared to most other brewdogs. Luckily nothing happened in my trouser area. Phew.

TheJestersBeer (1930) - SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2012
Keg. Pours a brilliant, deep copper, with a white head. Fruity, very hoppy aroma, prune juice,passion fruit, blood grape, apricots, marzipan, walnuts, almonds. Off-dry, medium bodied, medium bitterness, balanced CO2. Hoppy taste, loads of fruit, cramel, apricots, mint, prunes, passion fruit, earth, yeast. Nice. (2012-02-15)

Lost some of its zing since last year, but lack of freshness gives way to a decent hit of alcohol and a great deal of hop bitterness before becoming sweet on the palate.

Sitting here waiting for the effects. Waiting. Waiting. Porn is more effective (and cheaper).

boFNjackson (4022) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... A pale, clear, golden pour with an off-white head. Solid nose with some hops and other spicing. Moderate texture in the mouthful with clean hop flavors. Sweet tart-like malts created a candied sweetness for balancing. Grapefruit with earthy herbal, almost tea-like qualities.

weaselkenievil (1094) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2012
Bottle at MesandSim’s Wedding. Poured clear gold with a healthy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy but not the hop fest I was expecting, some citrus, little herbs and spices. Flavour is similar, quite sweet. Would certainly drink again but perhaps the competition was too stiff at the wedding. Nice though. Nothing to report down below.

Ober (2806) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2012
A clear orange/red colored beer, with a thick foamy light beige head. The aroma of hop bitter, fruits like citrus, malt. The taste of hop bitters, fruity sweet and notes of spices. The aftertaste is some sweet with bitter.

Bottle from Brewdog Webshop. Hazy orange colour, off-white head. Nose is hoppy, pine, grapefruit, bit of herbs. Flavour is hoppy, pine, bit soapy, bit of caramel. Fairly bitter finish.
