2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared by fonefan. It pours a quite clear, golden body, topped by a small, beige head. There’s fruit and caramel in the aroma, but also some signs of infection. Lemony, caramel flavor with the fruits dominating. Dryish and astringent in the mouth. Lemony finish. Quite drinkable, and I bet it’s a great session beer from cask. Still, too focused on the lemon.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
TFODRBSG08 Courtesy of Fonefan. Golden with a creamy head. The aroma is on the thin side with light fruity notes. The flavour has a sour, slightly sharp citrus, mostly grapefruit, but also a little malt and sweetness. IMO to heavy on the sharp citrus, making it a bit unbalanced.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
50cl bottle. Pours hazy orange/amber with a off white head. Thin & a bit mouldy old taste with hints of citrus. Palate is a bit weak. Allright!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fruity (mostly citrus and distant berries) light bitter. Quite drinkable. Has spicy spectre but it’s not very dominant. Light hops with light herbal aroma. Reddish in colour. Low in carbonation, medium head. Refreshing fruity aftertaste, bit sweet but light.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Red Knocker. And then the beer. Sunburnt half at the brewtap. The quality of this brewer’s beers just didn’t dip throughout the evening...a waft of lemony, blackcurranty hop on the snout again. Clear chesnut with beige lace. Juicy hops to the fore, with a faintly biscuity background. Zesty and unputdownably moreish. The Fox is really on form. If you’re in the Norfolk area, check out this brewer’s generously-hopped, no-expense spared ’portfolio’. I was impressed by everything I tasted, and 1401 beers in, I’m getting a bit fussy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is honey, grassy, citrus. Taste is pale malts, grass, citrus and a bit spicey malts in the finish. Very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy red-copper with many particles. A very earthy beer with pine tree and conifers bark flavours. A bit fruity with some minerals notes (almost metallic). Medium bitterness. The taste was more original than the standard description I’m making of it but I don’t know how to put it. I liked it. I’d take a few big bottles of that stuff. One could say that I like big knockers.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask conditioned (Red Knocker) at The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk. Orange amber with light head. Sharp citric aroma followed by a lemon citrusy tang, very much on the tart side and a zingy lemonade flavour. Lacks body and balance for me, not the best Fox beer I had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle.Pours amber with a big offwhite head. Complex hop aroma promising citrus, grass, some earthiness, even berries. Good fruity flavours, mostly berries, offset by good bitterness. Some acidic as well as metallic notes. Dry. Light-bodied and sparkling. A great little beer it is.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bottle (courtesy of the London crew), lively out of the bottle with lots of carbonation that settles to a good clear ruby red with a think head of white foam (tha stayed through the whole glass). A malty aroma - nothing fancy, just clean and eniticing. A perfect medium bitter mouthfeel, releasing the fruit and malt flavours, with a spiced and tangy finish. Very easy to drink and very enjoyable too (more-ish is right).
