foolberry (56) - New Malden, Surrey, - NOV 30, 2012
Used to drink a lot of this. Looks the part, being a nice copper brown, yellowy foam head with lots of lacing. Aroma - not much. Taste is a lovely rich bitterness which fades to watery. Nice feel in the mouth. Pretty good aftertaste. It’s not amazing - just a good solid bitter. Like all Midlands beers, it has a hint of factory floor - but in a nice way.

fellebag (1143) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle 50cl. ABV 4,5. Big cream colored head, dark golden color, slow small bubbles. Aroma is wood, caramel, leaves. Hint of rainwater and cinnamon. Taste is some bitter of leaves from the english countryside.

Bottle. Some confusion here. Ratebeer has this at 5% not 4.5% which is what it is. A perfectly enjoyable, inoffensive pale ale slightly lacking in oomph, but goes down nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jamaty (1250) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Ingredientes naturales y agua de manantial. Cobriza. Poca espuma. Aroma no muy marcado, pero agradable, malteado y dulce, con trazas herbales. Pero de muy buen sabor, con equilibrio constante hasta el final. Tras entrada amarga sale a relucir toda la malta acaramelada para acabar de nuevo en un amargor herbal y algo especiado. Refrescante y bebible.

Copper colour, two fingers head that domes down soon, but leaving lace and ring. Aroma of butter, grass, caramel. Classic limestone flavour of Burton, medium body, rough palate. Taste of butter, butter cookies, flowers, spices. Really good.

ContemplateBeer (1755) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Finally bought a bottle only to find out the beer has been retired since 2013... well then! No bottling date, so that wouldn’t have tipped me off, either. Aroma: Biscuit and moderate caramel with light honey and spicy wood. Appearance: Rich, translucent copper pour with a foamy tan head that fades into a sticky skin. Flavor: Nice melding of caramel biscuit and woody spice throughout, leading to a fairly dry, lightly bitter finish. Palate: Light body, slick texture, soft carbonation, long finish. Overall: Probably somewhat removed from what the brewer intended at this point, but still a solid ale. Wish I could have tried this fresh.

The aroma has hints of the draught version, but this seems over carbonated and thinner than the pints of it I have enjoyed in the past.

younghomer (2) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2015 does not count
Intriguing aroma - woody and grassy. Reminiscent of carbonated piss in appearance but not too offensive. The pleasant aroma is drawing me in as I take a taster sip. Immediately I get cereal, apple, wood and grass tones balanced with tangy lemon. Moderate fizz. Sharp texture then smooth and comforting. Enjoyable experience.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2015 Marston’s Pedigree premium Pale Ale 4.5% ABV. Oxyd and metallic aroma with bitter almonds and ¿fish? Small head not persistent at all. Better flavour than aroma: Some malty and toasted notes. Aftertaste: Some acceptable bitterness but covered by metallic flavour. ¿Was it spoiled?

Erzengel (5528) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JAN 25, 2015
*Old rating. Best before 31. Jul 11. Smooth and fresh Ale. Nice well hopped, slightly malty, smooth with sweetish hints. Easy to drink with a nice bitterness in the aftertaste.
