maeib (8391) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 23, 2014
Cask conditioned handpump Willow Walk London 18/03/14. A dark brown coloured beer with an off-white bubbly head. A nice malty fruity bitter. A bit of licorice and some good hops. Tasty and well balanced. This is an old fashioned malty bitter on first impression but it’s actually bouncing with life.

BeerViking (2084) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 7, 2014
Cask at the Kings Tun JDW, hazy brown and malty, but a little flat and warm, and just on the turn, sadly. It was swapped without a problem.

Idiosynkrasie (3234) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 22, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear dark copper colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Earthy aroma, hints of moss, forest soil, rotten spruce, a nuttily touch. Taste is mild malty, earthy with a woody nuttily touch, hints of juniper berry. Too many dull earthy flavours like a handful of forest soil solved in a glass of water, lacks a light and refreshing component.
