Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - MAR 6, 2013
Bottled 0,50L. Reddish clear color, no bubbly presence, medium and evanenscent head. Pelasant malty and woody aroma, little roast notes, cortex, caramel. Very bitter and arid body, much dry and pleasant alcoholic content. Discreet malty and little roast wood final.

BlackHaddock (3185) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Jan 2009: Clear 500ml bottle, poured into a UK pint glass (normal straight sleeve). True amber colour, clear and bright with a good cream coloured head. Caramel and vanilla aroma, a lot sweeter than most UK Pale Ales. The sweetness doesn’t follow into the taste a great deal, but it isn’t a bitter taste, it has a hoppy bite and the malted Barley also comes to the fore as the beer warms. Clean mouthfeel rather than a rich, heavy, creamy texture. The 4.5% is evident but blends well into the well balanced beer. I don’t like bottles of UK Ale to state ’Served Chilled’. I did because they asked me too, but a proper UK Ale should come to the table at about 50-52F degrees.

gunnar (4873) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUL 19, 2011
Clear bottle from Coop, Wadesbridge. Pours clear amber with a thin white film. Aroma is caramel and a whiff of fruity hops. Taste is dry and malty toffee with some herbal twist towards the end,

Oakes (11866) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2011
@ Eden Project. Dull brown. The aroma is kind of gingery. The taste is sweetish, mostly caramelly. Fairly simple, nondescript brew.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Bottle @ Eden Project. Amber with thin head. Smells like stale bread and is slightly metallic. Caramel malts predominate. Is thin and boring with dull, cardboard flavors. Dull unfinished wood flavors. Not so good, quite disappointing.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2010
Pours a viscous looking, hazed over orange chestnut body. Bubbles rise in loose streams, the head a lapse, soppy off-white mess that legs well. Muddled mix of toffee, almonds, fresh-baked, salty bread and hay on the nose. Very soft in the mouth, little to no fizz, well rounded medium-light body. Toasted grains, caramelised sugars, wood, some praline without the aided sweetness. Dry, malty swallow shows some wood, soft tannins and a very subtle hint of peppery noble hops. Not much bitterness, little esters to bring it out of being just a little weighted by the malt. Not bad, just not the best from this brewer!! (50cL, BBE 05/11, Cellarbrations Kinross)

Quack-Duck (7523) - Down South, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2010
bottle from Waitrose Sidmouth (08/2010). Clear amber-golden, intensive hoppy nose. Malty, slightly sourish fruity touch.

joe19612 (1748) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2010
Bottle. Pours with a light copper body, and a thick off white head with loads of carbonation. The aroma is fresh hops, little bit of malt in the background. The taste is a very malty profile with some thick single flavour hops, light bitterness. A fair ale but pretty uninspiring.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUN 1, 2010
Gustosa bitter dal delicato aroma di luppolo, giusto un principio piccolo di ossidazione (miracolo! visto che la bottiglia era trasparente )
