Craft Clerkenwell. Clear amber beer, no real head. Palate is light with very moderate carbonation. Mild dry malt - light caramel. A little tangy dried fruits. Semi dry finish. Mmmmm. When I think back to 1978 and what a great single Identity was - this is a remarkably flaccid tribute! It really falls short of the brashness and inventiveness of the band. Perhaps I’m expecting too much.

StilleStorm (1208) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
DWG; Bottle 500 ML. BBE MAR 2014. Pours small, murky brown with a fading bobble off-white head. Nose is toasted malt, caramel and booze, moderate rasin and spice. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a lasting boozy, cellar finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is flat. Rated 4 days past expiry date, maybe thats not fair..

Eckan (11) - Høvik, NORWAY - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle, half liter. Very little head. Strong taste of hard liquor. Not a pleasant beer. Although one could argue you get a lot of conflicting tastes in one brew it still is worth forgetting asap.

leaparsons (9101) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Dark ruby red and brown with a beige foam. Aromas are plummy with raisins and toffee malts. Woody and earthy with a vinous and slightly herbal and spicy character. Flavours are toffee with red berries and raisins. Woody and dry with pepper and copper coins. Nettle with lightly bitter lemon. Nearly good.

Garrold (3019) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle from Blacker Hall Farm shop, near Wakefield. Boosh!! This is bad! BBE March 2014, but this is awful. Like iron filings. I’m just glad I got as part of a four for five quid offer.

Holmen1 (3924) - Stavanger, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2015 Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff sep-13: en typeriktig bitter både av utseende og smak,, men i sterkeste laget for tradisjonell pøsebruk. Meget god, elegant men ukomplisert. Ny flaske på samme evenement jan-15: en saftig og god bitter er konklusjonen.
