melonfarmer (7) - - OCT 21, 2013
330ml bottle chilled. Really surprised at how bad this looks, like puddle water, no head at all. Almost zero carbonation which I don’t think suits the style at all. The result is a sickliness to what could be a really decent beer.

SlackerMads (1239) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2014
Bottle, bottled in August 2013. Unclear dark orange with a minimal head that doesn’t live up if you swirl the glass. Pine, citrus, light caramel, white bread. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation. Medium sweet and bitter. Good IPA, but a shame that it’s so flat and unclear. With a little carbonation this could be pretty good. Still quite pleasant.

Psytron (1151) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 6, 2014
Smell of hops, grass, pepper. Cloudy amber colour, minimal white head. Aroma of hops, pepper, mead, yeast. A faint of licorice. Very sweet. Very little carbon. Oily and full-bodied.

harrisoni (12648) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle on the 2nd Friday night is Bottled Beer Night 2014. From The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Cloudy hazy dirty golden brown with a lasting bubbly white head. Aroma of grapefruit but sharp gooseberry as well. And some sweet toffee. I’m guessing from the aroma I’m looking at a big IPA or DIPA. Very piney on the aroma. It’s sweet. For someone who likes a fully attenuated beer this has way too much residual sugar left in the beer. Too sweet. It unbalances the hops. I feel bad but this may even have to be a low rating. I love these 2 breweries and yes there is some nice hop going on and a lovely grapefruit sting on the finish, but it’s too sweet for me. Ken, where are you??? I need you.

wyzzywyz22 (1881) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle, Beer Moth, Manchester. Poured a vivid gold with a compact off-white crown. Aroma had notes of citrus and piney hop. Flava unfolded with similar traits alongside some tasty fruits and robust bitterness. Tidy beer. You can’t beat a bit of good old fashioned carnage.

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAR 2, 2014
Pours murky amber with a pretty much non-existent head. Nose shows wild honey, spicy hops, soft booze and piny notes. Lots of honey. Similar flavours, bit sweet honey notes along with spicy and piny hops leading to an abrasive bitter finish. Could use more carbonation.

JonMoore (1804) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle - opaque, murky orange with a slim off-white head. Fruity, acidic, malty, caramel aroma. Flavours are malt, caramel, marmalade, herbs, with a dry spicey bitter finish. Medium bodied, oiley mouthfeel, near flat. Not a favourite.

maneliquor (2781) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2014
Bottle from BD sheps bush. Pours dirty amber with a beige rim. Nose is loaded with dried and marmaladey/sticky fruits. Taste is dried apricot, sticky caramel, quite resinous and jammy. Solid beer but probably a little bit past it

sebletitje (6326) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 17, 2014

Note un profil assez rond et épais avec cette épaisseur d’avoine. Houblonné anglais accompagné de notes épicées. Pétillant est faible, note de pin et huileux.
