StoutHead (715) - DENMARK - NOV 26, 2014
Draught at Mother Kelly’s. Pours red with a dense white head. Taste is of malt, rye, hops with notes of citrus. Sweet with a bitter finish. Average body and carbonation. Easily drinkable but nothing special.

BlackHaddock (4137) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
Cask: hand-pulled pint on 24th Oct 2014 in the lovely Abbotsford, Edinburgh. Deep reddy brown, clear with a full lasting head. Aroma was both fruity and dry malty molasses. The taste was like the nose: fruity, malty and fairly dry in nature, I also found some rye bread type flavours and a mild hop bitterness in the finish. Decent.

mkel07 (3680) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 3, 2014
Bottle from The Wine Emporium 030814. Huge tan head that leaves some good lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant and the flavour is equally so. Not sure about hop extravaganza as the labels states but is is reasonably hoppy.

tombyars (1411) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - JUL 18, 2014
Tasted this at the GRAF, The Briggait, Glasgow on 27th June 2014. Gravity dispense. Dark copper red in colour with a thin off white head. Fresh green hops present in the aromatic, floral aroma - which is long in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts gives a fruity pink grapefruit flavour full in the mouth. Strong hop element giving a dry, grassy prickle to the floral aftertaste. Strong chewy grain note present in the drying, malty finish with tart fruit alongside giving a full bodied flavour overall. This is a decent Grain Ale and slightly better than the Rare Earth from Atom.
