DIBBLE (102) - Worthing, West Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2015
From bottle. Malty, herbal hopped aroma. Big bubbles carbonation. Frothy lacey head over cloudy amber beer (both Glastonbury beers I’ve tried so far have had some cloudy residue towards the end of the pour). Good balance of fresh sweet maltiness with light herbal bitterness. Vanilla notes in the dry sweet finish.

IronBlue (6) - Weymouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015 does not count
Bottle from ASDA Poole. Cloudy orange. I like this one, good nose and great balance of hops against quite a malty caramel backbone. But, hideously overcarbed again, took two careful pours to get it in the pint glass.

Cask at Craft Beer Co, Islington on 24th April 2015. Hazy copper with thin decaying off-white foam and spot lacing. Caramel malt aroma with pungent earthiness. Fruit and maltiness in liquid with some spice, before a fruity finish with black pepper and late bitterness. Light in body and mouthfeel.

SarkyNorthener (3483) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle from asda, bristol. Copper beer with residual head. Aroma is lots of caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet malts, caramal and some light hop, that no where near balances out the sweetness. Too sweet, not good.
