davidtjm (917) - Berlin, GERMANY - DEC 4, 2014
Keg. Pour is murky gold with a thin head, aroma is fruity. Taste is fruity, sweet, berries, strong carbonation but ultimately lacking in depth. Average

stravale (2495) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle from The Bottle Shop, Cheadle Hulme [061111]
Amber, hazy, big frothy bubbly white head, good lacing
Aroma of citrus hops, lemon, soft sweet malts, fresh, slight orange zest, good aroma
Taste - Fairly sweet caramel base, some bitter lemon zest, slight honey, dab of creamy sponge cake mix, soft orange zest, soft wheat. Like the malts in this, good citrus hop. Quite a complex flavour.
Palate - Soft carb, medium body, rather sweet, good mouth feel. Finish of nice sweet creamy caramel and bitter orange zest.
Overall - Liked this a lot. Bit unusual. Packed with flavour.

AshtonMcCobb (3937) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 1, 2014
On cask at the Beer Hall. Appearance - hazy golden with a proportionate head. Nose - elderflowers and a general herby feel. The main aromas are citrus. Taste - more citrus and herbs. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a balanced finish. Overall - the beer of the day which is unusual as it’s not one of my preferred styles.

minutemat (2504) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2014
Cask @ The Font, Manchester. Pours clear gold with thin white head. Unfortunately this was just way too warm, had a sweet gooey banana aroma with overripe bananas, sugar and dough in the taste. Served at the right temperature I’m sure this would’ve got a higher rating but this time it was too offputting. Will re-rate if I see it again.

Bottle BBE 05.15. Sweet vanilla, grapefruit and lemon cheesecake aromas. Cloudy yellow/orange appearance with a towering, loose frothy head. Prominent sweetness with a bitter edge. Lasting sweetness on the tongue. Smooth, creamy texture with a stickiness that coats your teeth. Low carbonation
