Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle shared at Josh’s Farwell Fling, thanks to Leighton, this beer puts GB back to being my top style, I need a trip to the US and soon !!! 20/02/14. Pale golden with a moderate off white covering. Nose is lemon rind, apricot jam, bread dough, straw, bitter orange. Taste comprises light soap, bitter orange, citric sherbets, straw, bread dough. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light grassy bitterness in the close. A truly whelming affair!

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle shared in London for Josh’s farewell do. Pours clear, pale yellow with a frothy white head. The nose has dry, doughy pale malts and nips of lemony citrus. Light sweet flavor with a bit of tangy lemon, some hay, more dried pale malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Somewhat surprisingly tangy to finish, mild citric lemon, light pale malt sweetness. Pretty tasty.

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Leighton. It pours pale gold with a small white head. The nose is earthy, grainy, hay, citrus peel and cat litter. The taste is crisp, lemony, grapefruit, sherbet, minerals and light mouth pucker with a dry finish. Medium and fine carbonation. Smell is a bit dodgy, but tastes alreet.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014

stravale (1883) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - FEB 11, 2014
Bottle from Ales By Mail [250114]
Blonde, clear, thin white head, some lacing
Aroma of light apricot, bit woody, ashtray, slight spicy, light aroma, odd smoke
Taste of light citrus hop, slight odd smoke, odd, cigarette ash, pale malts, bit lager like, odd bit ashy taste, not working at all
Palate - medium carb, light body, soft fruits. Finish is dry, odd, I can’t get cigarettes out of my mind now
Overall - The worst beer I’ve had from Hardknott - really poor. Not surprised it’s the lowest rated Hardknott beer on here

Bottle from Bier Huis, Ossett. Clear, pale gold. Bubbly, lasting, white head. Aroma is cracker biscuit. Lemon pith. Light spiciness. Taste is mineral dry. Lime zest sharpness. Slightly metallic. A little sourness in there too. Very dry finish. All a bit odd, really.

330 ml bottle. BB 07/2015. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Clear golden colour with a small white head. Strong dry grainy malty aroma. The flavour is quite nice... dry grainy malt, mild floral hops, mild smoke and saltiness. Fizzy and quite fresh.
