rauchbier (3596) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle, from Sainsburys. Deep gold, shortlived white head and low condition. Gently malty nose with hints of orange and a developing elderflower note. Thin in the mouth with hop resin dominant over a gentle flowery orange maltiness. Flowery hoppiness in the finish, some low malt sweetness but becoming dry with wind expected from the south later.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2005
Bottled. Shovels of hops here; liquid lemon, dark amber body, began by thinking it was a little too hopped and tart but it settled to a surprisingly good crunchy beer. Keeps on tingling. More like alkie lemonade but I ain’t complaining.
