Theydon_Bois (17262) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Cask at the Old Coffee House, 25/02/14. Lightly hazed mahogony brown with a moderate tan cover. Nose is biscuit crumble, caramel, earthy hop tones, light pine, brown sugar. Taste comprises biscuit malt, earthy hops, light pine, tropical pangs, caramelised sugar. Medium bodied, a little flat, semi drying close laced with earthy hops. Decent enough hoppy brown, thinking the condition not so hot on this one which probably lost it a couple of marks.

maneliquor (3484) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 25, 2014
Cask at Old Coffee House cheers to Colin. Pours clear chestnut brown with a small bubbly beige head. Nose is grapefruit, mild milk chocolate, quite pine driven and a hint of tropical fruit juice. Taste is stale toffee, mocha like, a touch ashy, grapefruit tang, and a mango and tangerine finish. Condition isn’t great but this is still quite solid

Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 28, 2012
Cask at the Brodies Bunny Basher Festival, King William IV, 1st May 2011. Deep brown. Not much nose but good malty flavour. Quite heavy palate. Nice but their Pride of St. George is better.

omhper (23733) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2011
Cask at the brewpub. Very dark brown. Lemony nose. Sweet with a flavour more reminiscent of lemony dishwater than enything else. Mid sweet with rounded mouthfeel. Mild yeasy sourness and slight bitterness Clear off and infected. Had this not been served at the brewpub I would not have rated it, but here the brewery should have had control over the beer al the time untikl it landed in my glass...

Cask (Southampton Arms, RBESG2011 Saturday)
Sweet grapefruity aroma. Deep brown, small head. Very full rich roast, tons of hops. Soft palate, carbonation low. Super solid brown ale. I’d like to see Gazza’s take on this.
