Bottle. Deepish amber colour. Yeasty aroma. Mouthfeel is quite fizzy (bbut it does soften a touch as we let it settle). Brown sugar sweetness, yeasty, lemony, with hints of banana. Too much gass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at the Chris_O Beer, Cheese and Curry powwow. A fruity slightly vinuous aroma to this amber coloured beer. The taste is a little creamy. It is fruity, peppery and prickly in the mouth. A tasty beer which actually reminded me of Southampton Grand Cru??? Thanks to Ian for providing a new brewery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
An odd cloudy looking beer in a sort of reddish colour. Sweet, malty & fruity with a touch of sourness, the flavours aren’t very cohesive, and the beer is all over the place. Not really unpleasant.

75cl Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05, originally from Auchan, Calais. Browny russet colour with thick beige head. Slight haze. Toffee, candy sugar and green hop nose on the aroma with some yeast. OK in mouth with more toffee, yeast and hop on finish. Didn’t detect any rotting hedgehog, damp cardboard or maggots as Silk did

Bottle at London Gathering Nov 05. Musty yeast and caramel with fruity background malts. Although this was OK it was a bit sweet and I wouldnt want much

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2011 Nov, 2005. Kilburn Palace Bottle Fest. Aroma of dead hedgehog in a rain soaked cardboard box. Flavour is toffee sweet with some spice and a lack of clarity. I don’t think the brewer intended the beer to taste like this. Default score. [2.7]
Aug, 2011. Troyes, France. Escape from the riots. Sweet, grainy and spicy. The usual. Very drinkable, but too much like corn syrup to be impressed. [2.9]
