Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish, and faintly acidic, grassy spicy tropical fruit aftertaste with herbal minty notes. Nice, fresh, drinkable. (0.33l bottle, I don’t know where from.)

Osprey87 (1693) - WALES - SEP 3, 2014
Keg at Draft House. First of all, how did a British brewery manage to spell ’sabre’ incorrectly? Not impressed. Anyway, it’s hazy orange, very lightly sparkling, small foamy white head leaves rings of lacing. Aroma is light lemon, musty. Body is medium, quite foamy, low carbonation. Taste is lemon cheesecake creaminess, light resin, soft bitterness. Simple but very drinkable.

SarkyNorthener (1937) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle thanks to s_hartshorne. Copper beer with medium head. Aroma of grapefruit, a touch of caramel and malts. Taste is grapefruit, a little pine resin, fruity malts and a hint of dry herbs. A little oil on the palate, slightly chewy. Very nice. One of those IPAs I could drink all night.

Flaska. Fin doft överraskande bra för en engelsk ipa. Smaken fint balanserad med en trevlig bra beska. Summervine överraskar!
