Vladivostok (271) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2014
A nice golden ale, if slightly sweeter than most with a delicate malty nose. Served in this particular instance with a tight creamy head and although the palate was quite robust I found it difficult to detect more than a hint of citrus in the final product. Nonetheless quite drinkable and refreshing. The pub in which I tried all the Gower beers (The King’s Head, Llangennith) was clearly top-notch for its cellarmanship and whilst it could not make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear, its skill in this direction certainly did the beers no harm at all.

JorisPPattyn (8032) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - FEB 16, 2014
Medium off-white head, fed by very lively carbonated orangeish golden, clear beer; end of bottle a little yeastveil. Spices/hers nose, veyr nicely, but impossible to determinte which kitchen herbs. Tad of caramel. Hoppy, C-hops - passion fruit, not very British. Bit grapey too. Very fruity, and a bit of malts. MF is very British: just not empty. Bit onedimensional, but I suppose that it must be a very good session ale on cask. Txs to Stef!

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Bottled 19/12/13. An orange gold coloured beer with a little white ring of head. An acetic note to the nose. More fruity and acceptable in the mouth. Does still have a hint of infection but otherwise it’s drinkable enough.

imdownthepub (10646) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Sainsbury’s in Banbury. Hazy gold with short lived head. The flavours are low impact in this, there is a smoothish body, a touch of sweetness and a hint of caramel. Maize and corn notes perhaps, a light bubblegum flavour then sweet fruitiness. Nothing exciting but drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a dark orange colour with a thin white head, aroma is malty and fruity, the taste is sweet with a dry finish.

Bottle from Sainsbury’s Team Valley. This is a pale golden hazy beer with sweet biscuit and slight sour citrus fruity flavours followed by toffee and sweet almond on the finish.

BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2013
500ml Bottle: BBD Apr 14, poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged pint vase at home on 16th Nov 13 having just got in from watching Grimsby Town win away at Tamworth. As the name might suggest, this is a golden coloured beer, the white head disappeared into a weak wisp within 30 seconds and a thin collar not much longer, not good in my eyes. Lemon notes in the nose, more so in the taste: a bit one dimensional and not really my thing, refreshing enough, but not exciting enough to make my taste buds ache for another sip, had trouble finishing the whole bottle to be honest, but this was my lining for the evening before the heavier stuff got opened. Almost got the evening off to a bad start, I’ll not be seeking out this beer again.

birstallblue (20) - batley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2013
Poor head retention colour is a slight off orangey gold. Very little hop aroma coming off the beer. Now for the positives. What a lovely unique tasting beer. A lovely fruity flavour with a slight hint of spice, followed by a pine taste and really full taste on the palate. The finish is moderate.

Beth101 (531) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
Golden but cloudy. Pours with a large frothy head. Has lacing on the glass. Light aroma of honey and hops. Refreshing taste of hops and citrus.
