3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Backus’s Backdoor Bash ‘08... Murky, dark, prune-colored ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Spicy, herbal, tart aroma. Medium-bodied with a coarse mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Interesting flavor - a wonderful balance of tangy acidity, hop & alcohol bitterness and caramel sweetness. Finishes crisp, then moderately sweet, lightly acidic and pretty darned herbal. The alcohol is nicely tucked away. Different and delicious. Many thanks to scubarex for providing the bottle that I shared!

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Thanks to goldtwins for sharing this. Deep brown appearance. Aroma is very intense. Loads of big molasses, cocoa and toasted rye. Rummy with a some blackstrap molasses, buckwheat honey/treacle and sweet maltiness. While the aroma is intense but suggestive of something appealing the flavour is really quite terrible. Sticky, rotten banana and peach with a lingering funky (not good funky) rancidness. Like rotten fruit mixed with fresh raisins and some lactic sourness. Freaking awful.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
No head; red, fully hazy beer; Toilet desinfectant, some cooked greenery, alcohol. Sharp MF for a more ore less fruity taste, orangepeel coming out, all in all a jumble of conflicting flavours. Sharp, resiny finish. Medium bodied, feel as from acidburn. I prefer Matt’s IPA’s...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at pre-Zythos car park tasting, Alvinne, March 2009. Thanks to whoever contributed this. Mid brown colour. Some sharp yeasty notes, coupled with raisiny fruit and peppery spice in the aroma. Bit of a kitchen sink job on the palate. All sorts of flavours that seemed to be engaged in a bit of a struggle but came through OK in the end. Good zesty orange bite at the end with some resinous notes. Something of a mish mash - I wasn’t at all sure of the style when drinking it - but definitely tasty.
