shoulderbroken (3222) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2016
Tap at Craft Clerkenwell. Aroma is strawberry, shortbread, bit of grain. Taste is very nice. Dominated by the strawberry, very strong fruitiness, almost like undiluted squash. Some tropical fruit too. Herbal sparkles at the end. Quite interesting! Maybe feels a touch boozy though.

Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is chalky, dry, floral, light citrus, a touch sour. Not bad.

Scopey (10658) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2015
Bottle at the second 42nd Floor Tasting. Thanks to Matteo. It pours cloudy gold with a thick white head. The nose is sweet, fragrant. juicy tartness, tangy apricot, white peach and candied peel. The taste is toasty, grainy, farmyard, soft peach, stewed lemon, ginger root, light funk, sticky sweetness and alcohol warmth. Finish is pretty hot and sweet (but not in a good way). Medium body and moderate carbonation. Although this has some nice aspects to this I find it a bit messy overall.
