imdownthepub (12812) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 2, 2010
Bottled, pasteurised, 355ml from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Red amber with white head. Good, smooth and fruity beer with quite a sweetish hoppy flavour. The body has a slightly thick caramel note, but with a soft, berry fruitiness, decent tongue coating, then a fruity light hop, not with the aggressiveness expected. Very pleasant.

Dogbrick (11061) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Courtesy of Hollingshead Deli in Orange, CA. This beer was certainly a pleasant surprise. Usually these gimmicky-type bottles house awful beers. Pours a thorough amber color with a medium thin and quickly dissipating light beige head. Very thin lacing. Assertive floral hops aroma. Excellent balance of hops and malt in the flavor. Nice, clean finish is bitter and a little spicy. Very good.

Ferris (11045) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle - Pine notes and a caramel backbone. Clear amber with a bubbly brown head. Lots of toffee with a resinous hoppy bitterness. Finish is very dry and bitter. The finish is what prevents this beer from being awesome.
