OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2012
0.5 L bottle, purchased @LÝrenskog Brusshop. Body is clear deep gold, covered by a low creamy off-white head. Not mush for the nose here, a faint whiff of creamed caramel and some dusty hops. Light malt body. Fairly dry, and not very flavorfull. Lively carbonation, watered down mouthfeel. SOm bittering hopdcan be noticed in the finish. No offs, but utterly unexciting. Probably far better from a well kept cask.

dogbomb (1021) - ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours a crisp clear amber with a thin white head. Thereís a hint of nose in the form of cakey spices. Once in the mouth it wakens out - liquid christmas cake. Itís mild, but itís there. Cinnamons, nutmegs, the cakey maltiness. Not overly sweet as itís balanced with a decent bitterness. A nice seasonal.

ALLOVATE (2593) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2012
Pours an attractive, radiant deep orange, not quite bright, with a big, dense, rocky white crown fuelled by fine streams of bubbles. Pronounced nutmeg and cinnamon on the nose with an odd hint of ginger and root beer, and toasted marshmallow. Unexpectedly raw and bitter, herbaceous hops in the mouth. The cinnamon and nutmeg blend in to the biscuity toasted malts to give a savoury edge to itís sweet front. Mild buttery notes and hints of caramel are forgettable. Not too long in the finish, ends quite crisp, the body light and adequate carbonation gives it bounce. This wasnít too bad a drop but I canít see it being overly sessionable! (50cL, BBE 02/13, Cellarbrations Kinross)
