maeib (8711) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2011
Bottled. A classic brown coloured beer with an off-white ring of bubbles. An old fashioned bitter with chocolate and orange flavours in the mouth. The maltiness is good, and the nose has decent fruits. Perfectly pleasant.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2011 Jan, 2011 500ml bottle from Bitter End, Bromley. Bottle conditioned. Tasty beer. Well made from decent ingredients. Good balance and very flavoursome. Nice range of hops notes spread throughout the engaging malt. Roasty flavours. Orange flavours. Plenty enough going on, but nothing too assertive or flash. This is a very decent, old fashioned drinking beer of good flavour. Rare to get a low abv beer of this quality in the bottle, and from such a brand spanking new brewery. Well impressed. Great hops and malt. Bang on. [4.2]
Oct, 2011 JDW, Faversham. Reddish. Old fashioned. A little flabby, but OK. [2.7]
