ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 27, 2011
Out the bottle, cool not cold. There is a subtle haze to it on a careful pour, yeast pack is loose. Solid, compact white crown holds on and laces well. Complex malt and hop nose, quite pronounced, with hints of toffee, wood, Anzac biscuits, tangerines and apricots, rose petals, dusty earth and Bee pollen. Good body, soft rounded mouthfeel with a smooth full finish. Quite nutty and weedy with a lot of bitter, underripe fruit coming through. Long malt, pine, wood and herbal swallow. Quite raw in flavour with biscuity toasted grains keeping it level. Some tangy citrus builds. Extremely quaffable and give off more than its modest ABV. Great stuff, another outstanding beer from this brewer. (50cL, BBE 06/12, Bridge House Cellars, Exmouth, Devon)

downender (7960) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2009
Cask-conditoned at the Imperial (JDW), Exeter 25/07/09. Pale amber with a slight white head. Aroma of summer fruit, citrus and a touch of floral hops. Flavour of biscuit malts, with more fruit and a dry finish. Good, easy drinking.

dnas2 (705) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2009
(Bottled) The most carbonated beer I’ve ever come across (either that or it was dropped in the warehouse!) Fizzed out on opening. Cloudy with a very big head and copper colour. Lots of malt in the scent and roasted nuts also in the nose. There’s also some winter fruit and burnt sugar. In the mouth, quite thin with a silky mouthfeel. Lots of bitterness but also quite a bit of sugar. Tastes stronger than it is. The mouth doesn’t last long but includes berries and some earth. Slightly acidic note, possibly from the CO2.

joe19612 (2618) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark amber colour with a thin white head. Has a real floral aroma, the beer has a very citrus taste, and good carbonation, with a dry finish.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2008
Bottle from Arden wines. Attractive fruity aroma with lemon jelly, tomato leaf, celery, strawberry jam and banana-like esters. Half the fruitbowl, then. Bright dirty amber with good lacing and lively carbonation. Ash and soap in the mouth with hints of apple, strawberry and rubber. Can I wring any more fruit/vegetable metaphors out of this one? No, banana, strawberry, tomato, celery, lemon and apple will do. Quietly impressive bottled bitter with a good gust of sensible but fruity hops.

Quack-Duck (9181) - Down South, GERMANY - SEP 1, 2008

leaparsons (9949) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2008
Bottle. Bronze with a small head. Aromas are biscuit malts with tea and some light fruitiness. Some floral and nutty notes. Flavours are dry with minimal malts. Tea with hints of soapiness. Peppery and bitter on the finish. Spritzy and in decent condition.

SilkTork (5567) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2007
500ml bottle from a Torquay supermarket. Foamy head, and a yeasty sharpness typical of British bottle conditioned beers. As dj says, this is like a tasty enough homebrew. There’s nothing special going on here - beer has been brewed and it tastes OK. Light, refreshing, fairly dry, with some citric sharpness.

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2006
Bottle. Bitter with traces of sulphur. Not impressed at first but it did improve with drinking.Properly bottled it might be a reasonable bitter.
