MTLawrence (10) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2012
A nice, lively dark ale (tasted from bottle) which went very nicely with a spicy chilli. Pleasant aftertaste which doesn’t linger too long.

jamesie1857 (1694) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2012
500ml bottle - a refreshing beer with very little in the way of nose or taste. One that falls into the category "some beer". Okay, inoffensive, but forgettable.

Musty aroma, taste is of stale bread, cereal, grains, oats and pleasant vomit

Draft. Clear dark gold beer. Low carbonation. A little fruity in the nose which carries over to the taste. Palate is semi dry. Ultimately hamstrung by some sulphur.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2012
500ml brown bottle (4.4%ABV) BBD unreadable, but sometime in 2012! Poured (twice) into a ’Back Forty Beer Co’ badged US pint glass. Nice deep golden body, clear and clean looking, on top a thin white coat of tight bubbles. The label wanted the beer chilled and served at 8 degrees C, it was. This effected the smell, only hops at first, but as the beer warmed maltly biscuits and toasted brown bread esters arrived. The taste was also hoppy at first, wether the beer was cool or warming, the hops ruled the flavours. Refreshing and fairly sharp on the tongue, an ideal summers day pint with a ’Ploughmans Lunch’: I had some mature Cheddar and Double Gloucester with my pint and they suited each other perfectly.

tkrjukoff (4205) - SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2012
Bottle 50 cl, Westholme Stores. Pours clear amber with a good off white head. Aroma is malty, sweetish, a bit caramel, hay and fruity. Flavor is fruity, metallic, malty and hoppy bitter. Very drinkable, good carbonation and in my opinion a very nice bitter. Finishes bitter fruity.

rauchbier (3668) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2012
Bottle, from Morrisons Scunthorpe. Copper gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Hints of caramel, burnt toffee and fruit in the nose with some background earthy hop notes. Quite soft in the mouth with some melon notes and a more insistent hoppiness developing, and lingering, in the finish.

niquillis (1840) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2011
On cask at Lamb Inn, Bury. An earthy best bitter. Good texture but the flavour lacks depth. Average.

Bullit (4219) - Burgos, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2011
Cask @ 3 Judges. Orange colour, off-white head. Nose is slight caramel malts, a bit hoppy. Flavour is caramel mlats, bit of fruits, followed by dry biscuit. A bit bland.

joe19612 (2195) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a light amber colour with a thin white head, plenty of hops and fruit in the aroma, the taste is all hops and citrus fruit with a dry finish.
