olio (7253) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 12, 2015
50 cl bottle. BBE 01/2015.
Pours clear amber color with a medium sized white head. Somewhat stuffy grainy aroma with malts and some mild fruity notes, some hay too, barely noticeable hops. Lots of grain and malts on the flavor, resin, slightly bready with orange notes. Slick bitter palate, decent body. Sadly quite old and it shows, too stuffy and the hops are gone, otherwise decent and clean brew.

AshtonMcCobb (3599) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - a lovely amber with an attractive thin head. Nose - wild floral honey. Taste - more of the same. Then oranges. Palate - light to medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. The dryness builds through the glass. Overall - well balanced.

BlackHaddock (4593) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Decent sized sample on 14th July 2014 at a Beer and Indian Food evening: The Clay Oven, Irvine, Orange County. Tasted between two strong Stouts and basically used to cleanse my mouth: which it did nicely. Amber and clear body, off-white crown. The nose was hoppy with floral notes. The taste similar but seemed a little bland and thin with subtle/weak flavouring. A refreshing enough beer but lacked depth compared to some of the heavy hitters it was up against at the 5 brewery tasting evening.

Almost clear amber beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light thin malts and light dry cream. Touches of orange and orange peel. Light bitterness before the semi dry finish. It’s fine if a bit on the timid side.

Theydon_Bois (11666) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Keg at Rock’n’Fish, Laguna Beach, 17/04/14. Clear amber with light reddish tones when held to the light topped with a moderate light beige swirl. Nose is toasty maltings, orange, pinch of spice, light caramel, faint hops. Taste comprises caramel, toasty notes, hint of vanilla, biscuit, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. A thoroughly whelming inoffensive amber shmamber, may as well be 6,000 miles away back home ticking at a Spoons fest!

Barreras (1168) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours a copper color with a nut walt aroma. Taste is clean with a slight hop flavor. Aftertaste quickly disappears, with a floral earthy flavor. A mild amber ale without much complexity.
