Beese (2555) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
50cl bottle. Poured a clear copper, with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hop and toffee. Nutty flavours, with some biscuit and grass. Finish was somewhat earthy, with lingering peppery hop and chewy grain.

Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - amber with a nice lacy head. Nose - toffee and stewed apples. Taste - more toffee and apples with a slight bitter and biscuit edge. Palate - medium bodied with a tangy/creamy texture and a nicely balanced finish. Overall - decent bitter.

BlackHaddock (4124) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2014
8th June 2014 sat in the sun on the front terrace of the excellent Barking Smack on Great Yarmouth’s seafront road. Hand-pulled half-pint. Good deep amber body with a reddish hue, on top a smooth white covering of tight bubbles. I found it hoppier than malty, a nice blend of flavours actually. Nothing overly powerful or mega tasting, just a good easy to drink British beer.

StueyD (1234) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
A mid reddish orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A light but full aroma of nutty malt, caramel and bready, there is a hint of orangey hop in the background. Dry mouthfeel. A medium dry malt flavour, nutty, caramel and cereal, followed again by a tangy citrusy hop flavour that adds a good balance to the finish. Tasted at the 3rd. Fakenham Beer Festival. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Otterdance (164) - Norwich, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Cask UEA. Chestnut coloured beer with a large, soft head which shrank to nothing. Fruits, woods, and some caramel. Lovely long lingering bitter finish from juicy hops - which is what lifts this above beers of this type. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Nice from a cold cellar.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Cask at Ales & Tails, Twickenham - 15/12/12. Lightly hazed copper with reddish hues and a thin off white head that clears to the edge of the glass and leaves a thin film. Nose is caramel malt, sweet sugars, pine, hops, strawberry jam. Taste follows, more fruit notes, apricot, pine, sugars, a little biscuit. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter sweet finish. Decent stuff.
