hayduke (3583) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 3, 2010
From a hand pulled cask at the Kings Wark in Edinburgh, Scotland. This had a rich amber color with a medium off-white head and thick glue like lacing rings. Nose of caramel malt, with some rope fruit. Heavy malt body and smooth mouthfeel with low carbonation. Flavor is malty with some citrus in the finish and some bitterness. Solid and easy drinking bitter.

KyotoLefty (7369) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 20, 2010
Stronger, much darker, and maltier than their IPA, with less drastic and interesting hoppiny but more malt character and flavor. Still has a decent hop finish, though very little bitterness.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2009
From cask in Edinburgh. Amber colored, brief yellowish head. Caramelly malts and faint fruits on the nose. Taste is mild malty, medium sweet, whit restrained fruit tones, and a modest amount of bittering hops. Mellow in the mouth, a bit diluted. Dries up on the finish. Ok beer, a bit boring though.
