johndoughty (4278) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2015
Bottle. My first from this fairly local brewery.Slightly cloudy yellow. Some hops with a trace of sulphur. Bitterness creeps in but that sulphur makes it a bit edgy. Reasonable but could have been better.

at_the_hop (65) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2015
So much head it was laughable - a good two inches proud of the glass at one point. Smell and taste is all sour wheat which I guess is the yeast as this isnít a wheat beer. For me this is just nowhere near the advertised style and was tempted to mark it lower. Disappointed as this brewery can turn out some good stuff.

AshtonMcCobb (3936) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle from Saucy Pears. Appearance - very lively head. Golden. Nose - lightly funky, lemon. Taste - lemon custard, yoghurt. Light grassiness. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a fairly good finish. Overall - the yeast note is too dominant. Is this what the brewer intended?

BlackHaddock (4929) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2015
500ml bottle: shared with Tony, the bloke who brought this to the 3rd De Bierboom Bottle Exchange on 6th Feb 2015. Golden pour with a good, clean white blanket on top. The nose has citrus hoppiness and a mild malty molasses undertone, the taste follows in the same way: a nice blend of ingredients that marry together well. Couldnít write any more: the night had just began and there were some monsters to conquer.

zacgillbanks (3204) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle from York Beer & Wine. Hazy golden coloured with sweet toffee and grassy flavours with bitter peppery hops on the finish.
