Keg in The Rake. Hazy, cloudy deep rusty orange amber, thin white head that’s gone quickly. Nose is white wine vinegar, fresh Granny Smith and Bramley cooking apples, urine, lemon citrous, sour acidic. Taste is nice tongue curling sour, urine, sweat, sour Bramley cooking apples, acidic. It’s like a Berliner Weisse meets a Wild beer. It’s clean and crisp and fresh with more sour fruit kick than a BW and more body, but not really funky or farmyardy like a Lambic. Good beer. On the finish it’s a crisp fresh acidic sour.

Keg at The Hanging Bat. Glad to get a chance to try this again after the misunderstanding the first time around. pours slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of sherbet lemon and wheat. Tart sour taste, pleasantly lip-puckering at first, then settling down to something closer to cider as you acclimatise. Very nice.

My one and only rate and it’s to balance out the two ’beer lovers’ below who are punishing a beer because of an honest mistake that was quickly rectified by the venue they were in.

Theydon_Bois (9915) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2013
Tap at the brewery in Henley, 05/05/13. Lightly hazed pale golden with a thin white head that retains well. Nose is sour grapes, light funk, touch herbal, pissy hint, elderflower, faint citrus. Taste comprises soured white grapes, lemon rind, funy barnyard, tarte citrus fruits. Medium bodied with fine carbonation, crisp and dry in the finish. Good lightly soured fayre, great to add a tarte note to the tongue and refresh on a warm day.

Stouts III Tasting. Cheers Paul for this one. Pale amber beer, bubbly white head. Palate is light and crisp, semi dry. Pleasant sourness, so not too much then! Light apple, apricot and lesser generic fruits. Finishes light crisp. Very drinkable sour.

Growler @ The Stouts Tasting Pt III: Brokeback Edition. Cheers Scopester. Listen Leighton, there’s nothing wrong with a man taking his mum to see Brokeback Mountain its day of release. Nothing at all. The pour’s light amber with a tiny head. The nose is fresh-baked apple pie, a bit of wild yeast. light white grape tang. The taste is similar. Only mildly sour. Light pear and apple juice. Mild citric bite. Low carbonation. Light body. Super drinkable stuff. Overall, really nice.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2013 Growler shared at Bruce’s in London during the Stouts Pt. III & Others: The Brokeback Tasting - big thanks to Paul. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Pale bread in the nose, hints of orange and other citrus. Light sweet flavor with mellow tang, lemon, some corn, white bread. Light bodied with fine carbonation, clean finish, some cereal, lemon, hints of orange, wheat. Tasty. Very drinkable.
