scotty (1053) - SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2009
Deepish amber in colour, but no head whatsoever! Lovely malty/fruity nose. Slightly malty sweet with an underlying bitterness which increases on the finish. Waitrose, Ponteland.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2009
Bottle from Bath Waitrose, not BC. Thank fuck for that. Iced tea amber with a fine, uneven off white head. Aroma somewhere between overripe strawberry and orange, warming into caramel sauce, Crunchie..vegetables. Caramel and orange, hazelnut, bit of a stale leafy/plastic note in the aftertaste like gnawing an old watering can. A pity. Enough quality to suggest the cask version is a really decent beer.

Rune (8044) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2009
500ml bottle shared with two good friends enjoying ourselves in the patio of The Cove, Covent Garden. Nice label design. Clear amber body with a lasting white head. Malt-fruity taste. Fine flavour of leafy hops. Rounded bitter ending. Smooth in the mouth. Well made and refreshing on a warm summer afternoon in London (03.08.2009).

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2009
Great caramel aromas paired with lingering hops and hints of fruit make this a complex but approachable ale. Containing suggestions of honey and a variety of tickly spices there is a lot to admire here. Its finish is really something to behold! An amazing savoury bite has me hankering for more of the great oily feel that washes over your tongue. Sublime.

Bottle, 500ml. A copper colour with a good head. A good hoppy aroma with hay and caramel. Taste is hoppy with a hint of caramel and roasted malt. A slightly citric, bitter finish. A good tasty bitter.

downender (6275) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2008
Bottle from Tesco. Clear amber colour with moderate carbonation and a slight white head. Sweet malt aroma with a touch of fruit and grassy hops. More sweetness in the flavour with some citrus hops and a decent dry finish. Good.
