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 (5924) - 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.

Embrouille (2806) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Bottled 50cl. It pours an amber beer with an average whitish head. The aroma is of caramel and fruits with some nice lingering hops. Very sweet and flowery. A hint of washing-up liquid, banana and Christmas pudding. The taste is of caramel, hay and fruits. Some washing-up liquid too. The finish is of caramel with a hint of licorice.

davegore (222) - liverpool, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2007
Served at the Rock Inn at Roche, pours a golden hazy orange, nice head. dominated by sweet honeyed flavours, subtle malts, not the longest of finishes but quite refreshing all the same for a summers evening

an amber coloured ale, with a fruity nose, and quite a fruity malty flavour.

HarryFlashman (469) - Chatham, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2007
A deuced disgustinig beer - dark amber in colour, slighty malty, sweet and syrupy, smelly and dirty. Betty Stog’s is a dirty old slag of a woman for a dirty old slag of a beer!

Skinners is now my local brewer, and if this tasty drop is anything to go by, this is no bad thing. This is a highly drinkable, if slightly insubstantial bew. Ideal for nice summer evenings with a bbq. Tatses a little thin but is very refreshing indeed with honey and floral notes.
