Rune (7943) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 8, 2009
Cask, half at The White Star. Deep dark amber with a russet tint topped by a film-type, off-white head and with solid laceworks on the glass. Dry and dark malty aroma. The flavour brings dark fruits mixed with caramel malts. Finish with bitter dark fruits. Well-bodied and pleasant (Stoke on Trent, 02.05.2009).

MiP (13573) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2009
Bottle, 5.2%. OK bready aroma. Hazy copper colour. No head. The flavour is slightly old bread, a bit of paper. Not unpleasant, but a bit strange. High carbonation.

Pours hazy orange amber with a nice, creamy, offwhite head. Aroma has light pine, a bit a ash and some hay. Some sweet, doughy malts. Light carbonation with lots of small bubbles. Okay mouthfeel. Flavour is nicely hoppy dry, some pine, soft green apples, malts, biscuits. Fine balanced ESB.

berkshirejohn (4439) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2008
50cl bottle from Tesco. Not bottle-conditioned. Very lively pour although this doesn’t seem to be bottle conditioned; copper with a thick beige head that falls back quickly; heady aroma of raisin and alcohol; rich, thick and oily in the mouth, with vinous fruits and chocolate flavours leaving a dry, nutty and moreish finish. An excellent example of the ESB style.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2008
Bottle classified as ’local beer’ by Coventrian Tossco. Not very. Rubyish pour with beige suds. Earthy, resinous N.American hop aroma (Galena?) has got me interested straight away. Spiky hops in the mouth, blackcurrant, ash, a late nibble of bread/biscuit. Chocolate infused with something herbal- thyme? Shades of Tunnel. Fresher, earthier and less (roasted) malt-accented than the colouration would suggest. Another impressively hopped bottled bitter from this brewer. Uncomplicated, savoury hop goodness. My kind of beer.

TimE (3120) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 24, 2008
Dark brown color. Caramel, cherries, apples and milk chocolate in the nose. Smooth balanced mouth, mildly sweet with the milk chocolate coming out quit a bit. Caramel, cherries and milk chocolate linger in the finish.
