fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Cask at Wellington, Birmingham, 4.2% ABV
Light amber color, creamy head. Light aroma. The flavor has some light malt, and light bread trace; light caramel too makes it just a bit better than other simplistic Ales; it has a light British fruitiness too; the final is just too bitter, with light metallic note.
Not bad, but a bit rough.

0.5 L bottle (4.2% abv), gift from yngwie. Thanks man! Tall near-white top. Body is slightly hazed, pale golden brown. Smells nice. A fine mix of of floral grassy, light citrusfruity hops, and toasted, cakey, light peppery malts. Light-bodied. Fairly sweet and buiscuity, freshened up by some fine citrus-fruity and flowery hops. Just the right level of bitterness. Rounded mouthfeel. Easy drinking. Moreish.

BlackHaddock (3479) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle, best before 2nd June 2009 drank on my Pale Ale tasting day, late April 2009. Poured into a UK pint sleeve glass. A slightly hazy, fairly dull golden yellow liquid filled the glass, a white, firm foaming head sat on top, a few bubbles could be seen rising through the beer to settle on the underside of the head. The head thinned out a bit quick but it looked fine at the start of the tasting. Good hoppy aroma (Cascade and Willamette), with a hint of a floral, apple blossom smell coming through as the beer warmed in the glass. The taste was crisp, sharp and a bitter hoppy dryness, the bitterness coming from the third hops used (Hallertau). The body was a bit thin, and the 5% alcohol content is hard to find. Having said that, it does go down very well and this brewery is fast becoming one I look for when visiting new beer stores and bars.

Smooth as you like. Coasts down gorgeously. Not massive aroma, hops or flavour, but you could drink them all day.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 5, 2012
Bottle, from trade with Rasmus40. It pours a clear, golden body under a dense, finger thick off-white head. The aroma is citrusy and generic fruity, with some biscuit maltyness in the back. The flavor has a nice bitterness, with biscuity maltyness in the back. Fruityness, citrus peel, some orange and a little touch of green pinecones. Medium body and pleasant carbonation, with mostly bitterness in the end. A quite pleasant one, easy drinkable and tasteful. 120405
