omhper (19963) - Tyresö, - JAN 27, 2013
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Cloudy orange. fruity nose with peach, plastic and chalk. Sweetish with light body. Like most Islay ales it is predominantly chalky - here with an addition of plastic and rubber. Peachy hops before a finish with some chemical bitterness. Quite unpleasant.

BlackHaddock (4144) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2014
500ml bottle obtained from the Scottish Aldi beer festival shelves along with around 30 other random bottles: opened on 24th Oct 2014. Amber body with a white head. The nose was a mixed bag of citrus notes, caramel sweetness and floral traces. The taste a pleasant blend, with the aforementioned aromas coming together in the flavours also. Mild hop bitterness in the finish.

lusikka (6550) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper colour with a white thick head. Aroma of sour berries, honey, grass and some biscuit. Flavour is something completely different; vegetables, massive sourness, wort, straw and plastic. Light bodied, high carbonation and a repulsive stingy sour finish. Completely ruined and undrinkable. Aroma was not that bad.
