marcus (6508) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle from Pangaea Sacramento. Pours cloudy blonde with a toffee aroma and a very mellow caramel and treacle flavor with a hint of peach. This beer is easy to drink and very satisfying.

bhensonb (11086) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 2, 2012

Svesse (6158) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 10, 2011
(Gravity cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 25 Nov 2011) Hazy amber colour with brief head. Fruity, malty nose with citrus, dried fruit and hints of oak wood. Fruity, malty taste with notes of dried fruit, citrus, apricots, honey and floral hops in a finish with a fairly gentle bitterness. More than medium body, slightly sweetish. Very nice.

jackl (4608) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Aged ale. Light, honey color appearance. No head. Very light carbonation. Very sweet flavor. Enjoyable, but lacks significant depth. Given the quality of these two brewers, I was hoping for a bit more from this beer to be honest!

wyzzywyz22 (1961) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2011
Bottle at home from Beer Ritz, Leeds. A slightly hazy dark amber pour with a middling yet lingering whiteish head. The aroma was comprised of sweet malts, orange, wood and some hop notes lurking also. Similarly sweet flavour with hints of spices and citrus, and fairly prominent booze. Some developing hop bitterness towards the finish. Tasty stuff but not quite a gold medalist.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - NOV 23, 2011
(500 ml bottle from Bootleggers) Pours cloudy amber-apricot with a finger and a half of off-white head that recedes to a thin layer. Aroma of some caramel and licorice, as head recedes there is some sweaty and lightly metallic hops. Mouthfeel is fizzy, feels over-carbonated. Flavor is dull, an orange-like quality initially with a hit of hops. Virtually no malt presence. Reminiscent of soda water.

johndoughty (3994) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
Bottle. Bronze leaning towards orange appearance. Small head and a combination of citrus and hops. Comlex and interesting flavours. The name was a bit off putting. The coalition ( government ) is evil, this beer is lovely.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2011
Cask @ Borefts 2011. Amber-ruby color with a tan head. White grapes, caramel, apple, somewhat vinous. Bitter taste in a medium body and carbonation. Sweet finish.
