Stouts III Tasting. Cloudy gold beer, big white head. Palate is light and dry. Fine minerally carbonation. Pretty nice generic fruits are soon overpowered by white smoke. Citric peel hop bitterness before the dry finish. Typically Fantome left field.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at the Stouts Pt. III & Others - London. Thanks to Kenny. Pours hazy yellow with a fine, white froth head. Nose of smokey wheat, lemon and dough. It has that golden ale smokiness defect. It’s weird. Smokey pale malts, bitter hay, grass. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Some soap. Warm finish, more off smoke, pale malts, light wheat, straw and hay, bitter grass. Certainly a bit off. Odd. So so. Fantome!

Scopey (12705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2013
Bottle at Stout 3 & Freestyle Tasting, thanks to Ken. It pours cloudy golden yellow with a thick white head. The nose is earth, hay, pear, apple, melon, nectarine, apricot and light tartness. The taste is hay, sherbet, apple, pear, melon, straw and some mouldy wood with a dry finish. Medium-full body and high carbonation. So-so.

hopscotch (10642) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle... Pours hazy and yellow with a slightly green tint (a la Strange Ghost) and a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The nose is smoky, bready and slightly lemony - nothing overblown, everything subtle. Medium-bodied with kicked-back carbonation. The flavor is bready, lightly lemony and mildly bitter. Lingering, yeasty, bitter finish. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2014
2014-08-15. Hazy pale yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is weird and phenolic, strange esters. Flavour is rough, almost smokey, phenolic, roughly bitter in the finish. Average bodied palate, modest carbonation. A bit strange, it fails to grab me today. Bottle at Campground Brewdown

JorisPPattyn (9505) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 18, 2013
Huge, rather dense & creamy white head over fully muddy peach-coloured beer. Phenolic, tarry nose with a citrussy lining. Plastic, smelling rather chemical... Very serious phenols, woodstainer, bitter fruit and citrus- and/or walnutpeel. Wry bitterness keeps lingering. Astringent, and not a little bit at that. refreshing it is, OTOH. Not very-well bodied. Aftertaste is (smoked) soap. Definitely one gone too far in the smoked-phenolic direction to be enjoyed at best.
