Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 28, 2012
On keg at The Bow Bar. Pours a dark golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of pine, peach, mango, musk sticks, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with decent bitterness. Moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle with a foamy mouth-feel.

hirigalzkar (2114) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2012
Draught @ Akkurat. Pours cloudy with a creamy white head. Hoppy! Grapey, piney... red orange. Long almost medicinal bitterness in the aftertaste. A touch of caramel. This must be one of the most bitter beers I’ve tried from britain.

jamestulloch (1050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2013 Aroma: Lime, faint lychee, honey and bread.

Appearance: Hazy golden body with a lasting pure white head. Medium carbonation and excellent lacing.

Taste: Soft malty flavours. Flavours of grass, caramel and honey. Quite boozy.

Palate: Medium body with an oily texture. Lively carbonation.

Overall: Tastes quite heavy for its 5.5% ABV, but this is a tasty, moreish American Pale Ale.

Keg at Bow Bar. Slightly hazy amber, bubbly white head. Soft mandarin, pine, lemon zest nose. Slightly sweet juicy mandarin followed by big pithy pine bitterness that lingers. Prickly carbonation. Tasty.

Cask at Craft. Hazy gold beer, little off white head. Smooth semi dry palate. Fresh juicy hops - orange marmalade and orange peel. Trace of lemon. Finishes semi dry. Satisfying pale ale.

harrisoni (12666) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co. Clear gold lasting thin beige head. Yeah this is pretty hoppy. Its leafy and bitter on finish. Vegetal. Boiled cabbage. Decent

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2012
Cask at CPK, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white head. Light buttery dough aroma, bread, certainly a does of diacetyl here. Medium sweet flavor with some lightly toasted dough. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Sweet on the finish with some light earth and grain, light pine. Nice enough, though the condition doesn’t seem optimal.
