AshtonMcCobb (2600) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle from Tanner’s of Shrewsbury. Pours golden and hazy with a generous head. Nose of gentle toffee and some ginger. Taste of fudge, biscuits and then a lemon note on the end. Palate is medium bodied with a bitter tangy middle section and a dry bitter finish. Overall an interesting bitter.

DruncanVeasey (7203) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2012
Bottle from Nuneaton Asda. Pale, brilliant gold slicked with white. Smells like a cheap tinned Greek lager; envelope, cooked veg, wheat citrus, fizz and corn. Better flavour with a Belgian hint of fruit and spice; coriander-like impressions, finishing hop bitterness.

BlackHaddock (3797) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Sept 2006 from BA: This is a straw coloured English Bitter, available in Shropshire and the surrounding counties. If you see it at a Beer Festival, take some. Straw blonde, lighter, if the sun catches it, at other times almost see through. Hops and Barley come to mind in the aroma, subtle fruit flavours too. The taste is almost sweet for an English Bitter, smooth and not overpowering. This is not a complexed beer, it doesn’t bite your head off with exotic overtones or explosive ingrediants, it could be called almost ’a simple taste’ because the mouthfeel is so soft. Very drinkable, I have had it at the Brewery, at Beer Fests and at a lot of Shropshire pubs.

Brandman (2080) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2011
Golden body, white head. Aroma has lenty of grassy hops. Quite pissy smells. Crisp and crunchy malty flavour, slight roastiness, fruitiness and sweetness. Long aftertaste, if it only would be little better.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2012 Bottled. A bright golden beer with a white head. Orangey hops in the nose with some sweet sticky malt. It’s the same in the mouth. NIce citricity and a bit of hop sting. A good mouthfeel. Nice beer. Score 3.3

Leighton (11101) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2011
Bottle at home with Drew. Pours a golden hue with a big, white head. Some mild, earth and straw hops. Lightly sweet with some faint bread and mild bitters. Light bodied with average carbonation. Faintly sweet finish. Nothing special, but OK.

BeerViking (2489) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2011
Cask at the Roebuck, Richmond Hill. Mid gold with fine white head and aromas of floral hops and hints of pineapple and citrus. Nice balance with malt and drying hops, then an astringent yet smooth finish. Tasty.
