Clear dark burgundy. Floral hop aroma. Spiced cinnamon and peache flavor, with a cherry taste hidden beneath. Speakeasy has probably the most consistently-finest smelling beer I've tried.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark golden with a thick puffy white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma has hints of crystal malt. Body is dry, somewhat stale and uninteresting. The hop flavors promised by the aroma are mild and boring. Goes down smooth, but nothing to write home about.

A Mes rate. Bottle thanks to Tom.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Bottle that Craig brought along (purchased at Belingers, Jet Garage, Wantage, Oxon 12-08-09 I understand) and shared in a field at Cropredy Festival 14-08-09 Pours copper with an off white head, this is an easy drinking beer, bit malty, some hops, touch tangy, sweet and with a touch of sawdust on the tongue, not bad but not an exciter.
