Mr_Pink_152 (2723) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2015
Tried a the Tempest Coleby. To be honest a dull and rather average bitter. Amber colour. Aroma malts. Slightly sweet. What more to say...

jjsint (1803) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2014
Cask at Ye Cracke, Liverpool. Golden brown, clear with a huge head. Sulphur, malt and maple syrup aroma. Unexciting and simple but enticing nonetheless. A sweet biscuity taste throughout, buffeted by bitter-sour sulphur. Weak oily mouthfeel but the slight carbonation carries it through. Basic, old-fashioned and Northern as fuck. This is a beer that has stood the test of time.
