bobinlondon (1260) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Gravity from the wood at brewey tap. Dark gold with an off white head. At first a little sweet, but after a glass or two the hops come through in force and it’s not difficult to see why the whole town seems to decend on the pub to drink this nectar on the 3 days of the year that it replaces the standard house ale. Well worth targeting. Be prepared to josstle for service.

kappldav123 (5476) - GERMANY - DEC 16, 2008
The bottle looks not really good, but the beer in the glass is incredible. Copper-coloured, fine creamy head. Starts strong and dry, prickly-malty. Finish is a bit weeker, notes are not as intense as before. Good beer.

Bottle@LCRBM08. Aroma has a bit flowery/grassy hops. Clear, copper-amber coloured with an off-white head. The taste is a bit sweet and a bit hopbitter. It has some maltiness and fruitiness. Well balanced brew. Enjoyable.

At last! Swing top bottle @ LCRBM 2008. Pale amber color. Flowery hops and malt in the aroma. Malty sweetish firm flowery hopbitter flavor. Long earthy citric hopbitter aftertaste. Perfect balance. German beer at its very best.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle@LCRBM08. A clear yellow colored bier, with a grubby white head. The aroma of some malts and a little hop. There is also the flavouring of some old fruits. The taste is dry bitter, again the old fruits. The aftertaste is bitter and it stays for quit a while.
