Scopey (12707) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2014
Bottle from Alesela. It pours deep brown with a thick beige head. The nose is sweet, fruity, brown bread, meaty, earth and mild smoke. The taste is bitter-sweet, spicy, dried fruits, raisin, sultana, earth, wood, coffee and toast with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not much depth, but easy drinking anyhow.

omhper (23713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2014
Bottled. Mahogany colour, no head. Light woody nose. Completely flat with light body and rounded mouthfeel. The lack of carbonation makes it hollow, despite promising woody malt character. Low-medium bitterness.

imdownthepub (13374) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 6, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Craven Arms, Birmingham. Chestnut with cream head. This was a light, fruity, sweetish mild. There was a hint of mushed apple in the malts along with a faint almond note. Only slight impact though. Nothing too exciting.
