On cask at the Anderson, Fortrose. Cheers Jim! US hop led amber ale in the modern style. Big malt body with a finger of tight creamy head. I had suspected rye in the grist but has been assured there is not, must be the mix of the melanoidin and biscuit, as it has a bit of a pleasant malty pepper-y-ness which is full and astringent. Full fruit and spice body. Lightly bitter and extremely well balanced. Very good, I’ll be seeking out more of his brews

Opalescent amber off-white head, aroma - hoppy sweet floral grassy; taste - gentle citrus hops, mild bitter on finish, rather pleasant.

Bottle from alesela. It pours clear deep amber with a medium white head. The nose is caramel, wood, caramel, orange peel, tangerine and sherbet. The taste is bitter, pine, varnish, resin, caramel, grapefruit rind and a touch of soap with a rather dry-bitter finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a touch watery, but nice bitterness nonetheless. Decent.

Almost clear amber beer, little pale tan head. Palate is smooth and with fine carbonation. Clean malt. Surprising amount of smoke, goes all right with the marmalade hops. Little dry malt before the finish. Not bad, not what I was expecting but not bad!

33cl bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. Well it’s a clear amber colour with a thick off white head. Bit of rubber on aroma and flavour. Some ok malt, but not a very good beer to be honest, that rubber is not great.

Keg at The Southern. Pours golden brown with a decent white head. Aromas has something distinctly cheesey going on, acidic anyway. Weird. Tastes a bit unusual, but fits the parameters for beer. Forgettable ending.

Van de tap@ The Southern in Edinburgh. Amberkleurig, ruikt tamelijk bedorven op een positieve manier. Smaakt moutig, bedorven op een aangename manier. Helaas wat weinig body. Apart bier, goed te drinken.
