Bottle that Craig shared with me in a field at Cropredy Festival 13-08-09 cheers Craig Pours amber with an off-white head. There is some hoppiness on the nose along with some cooked vegetables. In the mouth there is a touch of sourness from this UK style hoppy beer, with some streaky bitterness, its a simple beer but not bad at all. A6 A4 F6 P3 Ov13 3.2

Bottled (at Chriso, BB 12/2009, bottle from GBBF) Dark amber color, small offf-white head. Diacetylic, buttescotch aroma with odd dusty notes. Diacetylic, toffeish flavor too, not as bad as the aroma, has some English hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste as well.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2009
Cask at BQ, Milan. Cloudy ruby, no head. Black currant aroma. Medium sweet and medium bodied. Dominated by black currant-like hops. The malt just supports the beer, the hops drives towards the marked bitter finish.
