BlackHaddock (4924) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
500ml bottle, just out of date when opened on 4th Aug 2012. Lovely dark amber body with a thin tan coloured head on top. The nose and taste combined nicely: malty and yet hoppy too, pine, nuts and caramel vied for prominence with yeast and a mini-hop bittereness also in the mix. Well balanced and easy to drink, the 5% ABV being nicely hidden. Soft and smooth feel to it.

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2012
On cask at the Standing Order. Pours a hazel colour with a thick white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel and toffee. Similar flavours with lingering yeast, chocolate and caramel. Moderate carbonation and a foamy mouth-feel.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 26, 2010
Cask @ Standing order. Muddled rusty water color, with stable head. Boring aroma has bread and phenols. Strange! Has almost a fishy character. Weird, salty and bready with orange marmelade and ferrous/iron notes too...having said that it’s not horrible, just should be better.

Oakes (13538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2010
Cloudy light brown. The aroma is dull, maybe a bit malty. Nutty, but a bit phenolic. Not a good one, really, and the second time with phenol issues from this brewery.

thewolf (11492) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2009
Cask @ Guildford Arms, Edinburgh.
Pours clear ruby with a good, frothy, off-white head. Aroma is lightly grainy, very malty sweet, but with a great note of strawberries. Light carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some fne strawberry notes, light toasted caramel and hazel nuts. Fine, flowery bitter finish. Good with the fruitiness.

wyzzywyz22 (2102) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2009
Cask, Bodega, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. Copper colour with a thin off white head. Malty, slightly farty aroma with a hint of fruit. All feels very supressed, with flavours struggling to get out. Drinkable, but pretty dull fayre.
