wimpyjoe (3722) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2013
Burnley Beer Festival. A cider-esque tasting ale with an unpleasant bushy-grassy flavour and a bitterness. Golden with a small head. May have just depreciated in its lifespan.

Leighton (10698) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO Tasting - London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white film head. Toasty bready malt nose, some leaves, faint caramel. Very decent flavor, lightly fruity with citrys and berries, mild leafy bitterness, toasted malts. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good balance to finish, some woody-leafy bitterness, very faint caramel. Alright.

BlackHaddock (3605) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
26th September 2012 at home: 500ml bottle conditioned, poured slowly into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged vase shaped pint glass. Very lively (the bottle claimed best before Dec 12): huge body-less glass of foam filled the vase. I allowed the foam to settle and found about a third of a pint of beer had left the bottle. Light amber was the bodies colour the head an off-white mountainus covering. The smells were of a fruit pie made with shortcrust paistry that had just turned (off and musty): add some yeastiness and iron ore rust, strange yet compelling aroma. Drop the iron ore from the nose and the taste follows the aromas: off fruit pie and some yeast. I had to have a packet of crisps to help me finish this beer: not a good sign. The second and third pours brought the sediment up with them and the body obviously became cloudy; it also made the beer more yeasty and fruitier, the fruit being semi-sour and moving towards vinegarous. I tried to enjoy this brew and have marked it asIi saw it, should have been better!
