FatPhil (8996) - Tallinn, - AUG 19, 2011
500ml bottle (ChrisO’s post-GBBF2011 Tuesday)
Almondy maltiness in the aroma. Good sweet body, perhaps a touch winey. Fairly solid, but unexceptional bitter. No grunge from the ’organic’ ingredients. Nice gentle bitter finish.

Leighton (10422) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2010
Cask at The Carpenters Arms. Pours gold with a mild, white head. Malty nose with faint, earthy hops. Some caramel sweetness and bread in the flavor with light, earthy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Malty finish with some short bitters. Not bad.

imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle conditioned, 500ml from Millets Farm, Frilford, Oxon. Copper with white head. This smelt and tasted a little stale, there is a sweet, cardboardy, grainy flavour right from the off, with a malty but unfinished, as though it hasn’t brewed out, character. Disappointing.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2009
Coppery colored with cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Chocolaty and floral aroma with thin hops, some metallic note comes up. Medium bodied. Flavor is also chocolaty in start, aftertaste turns to dry with some flowers.

Fin (7251) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle from Millets Farm Shop, Oxon August 07 Poured warm golden, aroma was sweet toffee and malts but not overpoweringly so, more of the same in the taste and lacking in bitterness stakes, not bad though.
