reakt (950) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Cask from Beer Cricus’s LBBF ’05 (02.07.05). The best thing I remember about this beer was the pronunciation - is it tu-neck-ee or tawn-uh-kee? Everytime I said it one way, someone would correct me and claim it was the other way. Didn’t spoil my experience though. Cloudy amber in colour with foamy head. Aroma of toffee and spice. Sweet-ish taste with a spicy edge and lemon notes. Grassy finish? Probably hops. Fairly standard, but no less good.

Bart (2940) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2006
Draught, light amber coloured, with some light carbonation and an average white head. Sweet malty aroma, clear roasted caramel hints. Full body, little sweet roasted. Finish is sweet-bitter with some light herby touches. Average belgian ale.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2006
Bottle (from Bitter Virtue, BBE Jun 06). Sweet caramel malty nose with lots of pear drop. Sweet easy going body. The combination of pear drops and sweetness had an almost artificial feel which didnt sit well with me.
