CanCrusher (665) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle 0,50L. Clear, amber-red colour with small, creamy, light brown, long lasting head. Fruity aroma of blueberries, plums, raspberries, also biscuits and caramel. Taste is medium bitter with jam note as well as some woody flavor. Finish is medium bitter with a touch of alcohol, that warms up a little. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. It’s good, but not as good as previous from Past Masters series...

Lacks more complexes tastes and character, Palate: medium body, sick texture, average carbonation, medium long caramel - malty aftertaste.

BlackHaddock (4042) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
500ml bottle shared with the wife on 30th Aug 2014, drank in The Old Joint Stock, Birmingham. Really enjoyed this semi-sweet malty brew and re-living 1966 again (was too young to drink then though). Lovely colour and texture, deep, dark amber, off-white crown and a smooth feel throughout the drink. Malty molasses vie with a mixed bag of dark fruits in both the nose and taste, the alcohol well hidden within the flavours. A very good beer and one i would gladly have again and again.
