hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2007
Amber with a large white head. Curious and interesting aroma: strong, gassy, earthy hops. The taste is rather subdued in comparison with malt and a little citrus. Hoppy finish.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2010
BC from Bath Waitrose. Muddy and swirling with bits; settles down into a red-orange glow with a cream halo. Slightly agricultural aroma dappling with wet earth and cowpat until the lily, cinder toffee and juicy orange hop kicks in. Sloppy but enjoyable; layered earthy malts, toasted nuts, orange and grapefruit, chocolate liqueur, wood. Quite a skilled blending of herbal English and juicy US hops; yeasty dampness and nuts freshened up with hop zest. Building shampoo bitterness not dissipating with the swallow. Rustic and good.
