Douberd (3428) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2015
(Redwillow Feckless) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into an english pint, ABV 4.1% Murky orange colour on the body, huge off-white head that builds up after pouring, thick and with average retention. Aroma of yeast, little sourness (infected?) some floral notes and a bit of caramel on the background. Taste has nuts, litlle bit of caramel, faint hop presence, some sour notes too. Something went wrong here. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side. Not the best I had from Redwillow.

gegwilson (2242) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Cask in the Firehouse, Sowerby Bridge. Pours a deep amber with a tight creamy off white head. A very toasty malt dominated beer. Notes of biscuit and a little coffee too. Not bad.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2014
Bottle at home. Possibly the best bitter I’ve had, certainly in a long while. It’s hard to move me with this style, this did. Dark copper to brown, medium off white head. Aroma is yeasty, some toffee. Flavour is pretty solid, fair bit of hoppage, powdered chocolate, creamy hoppy finish with medium bitterness. Good beer.

BeerViking (3328) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2014
Cask at the Magpie, chestnut red with little head, nose is woody and herbal, palate is sweet red-fruity malt with hints of chestnut and honey, and a dry herbal bitterness. An interesting twist on best bitter.
