Bottle. At one time a lot of British micro’s produced run of the mill bitters frequently not very well bottled. How times have changed! This is a powerful beer overflowing with flavour. A combination of hops and fruitiness with a few other flavours thrown in. This could have come from the West Coat of America. Long may the micro revolution continue.

Theydon_Bois (16423) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle at home, thanks to an IP with Essex Jim, 01/01/13. Pours hazy golden amber with a thin white head that dissipates to the edge and leaves a film atop the glass. Nose carries tropical fruit notes, pine, hops, light sour wood tones, orange peel. Taste comprises pine, juicy hops, wood tones, bitter grapfruit, orange pith, touch of minerals. Medium bodied with fine carbonation leading to some sweetness in the bitter finish. Great stuff.

DanielBrown (4353) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Brum. Pours with only a ring of froth. Thick, sticky and still. Smells sweetly floral, with some boiled toffee. Disconcertingly gentle. Big sweet caramel accompanies the thick, sticky, building alc. Not harsh and the hops are anything but booming, yet it is quietly big. Nice, but hops are a bit too leafy/organic for me.

Scopey (11952) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2012
Keg at Cask Pub & Kitchen. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium yellow-white head. The nose is pine, resin, orange citrus, tangy marmalade, leaf and spice. The taste is pine, assertive bitterness, varnish, resin, booze, tangerine, orange, marmalade, creaminess and spice with a long warming, bitter finish. A big, boozy bitter beast. A tasty brew indeed.

McNeillR (2168) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Sultry sweet nose, dark sandy body, slanket head. A neat couplet of hop and simmering alcohol depth, spiked with a Mars Bar nougat/caramel type malt and sweetness crunched with a dry citrus backbone. Silky mouth-feel carries both the alcohol and the final steps of the palate with a real barb of bitterness on the finish.

The dryness really sells everything that comes before it for twice the price. A superb twist on a complex beer. Look forward to the next batch with interest.

evergreen0199 (2898) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle from Utobeer, Borough Market, London. A hazy amber/golden coloured pour with a medium white creamy head on top. Sweet, hoppy, tropical fruit aroma. Tastes hoppy, tropical fruit, grapefruit, slight bitterness and some sweetness too. Very drinkable. I rather like Tiny Rebel.

Beersiveknown (4974) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 1, 2012
Bottle@home from cotteridge wines.
pithy resin on the nose with underlying butterscotch, surely the influence of the wood. On the swirl comes Seville oranges. Mid amber with lacing of fluffy white head. Gentle carbonation with full tangerines and a dab of resin on tip of the tongue followed by a full mouthfeel with vanilla and caramel replaced by orange peel in the lingering finish. A touch of oatcakes and marmite.

jackl (6814) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Bottle @ The Euston Tap. The pour’s hazy amber with a creamy eggshell white head. The nose is sweet mango and orange peel. Jammy malts, wood, toffee. The taste is sticky sweet tropical fruit salad, some banana and mango smoothie. Oaky booze, some shredded coconut meat. Medium bitterness on the slightly syrupy finish. Fat, sweet body. A touch boozy. Overall, despite the sweetness, this somehow holds it together. Tasty, entertaining stuff.

Craft Islington - opening night. Hazy amber beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish with fine carbonation. Marmalade hops. Mild minerals. A little aniseed alcohol, nothing serious. Dry hop citrus. Not really getting much oak here - a trace of vanilla. Finish is semi dry with a mild bitter linger. Nice beer but I would have liked a bit more barrel.
