DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2007
A glourous looking pint however probably something to do with the sparkler which i assume killed everything else. Aroma was seriously minimal a bit of toffee malts. Taste was toffee, floural touch of spice an apparelty spice came in on the aroma later on.

Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2007
Gravity Cask @ Battersea Beer Festival. Sweet with choc and coffee. Not overly distinguised with a decent finish balancing some sweetness with a more usual drinkable bitter like feel.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 9, 2007
Half pint gravity fed at the Battersea Beer Festival, brown with orange tints and a large frithy white head. A buttery flower hop aroma - very pollen-like. A very rich palate witht he medium mouthfeel. A complex mix of both sweet and sour malt flavours giving it the impression of a stronger alcohol content. Porterish in a way - interesting.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2007
Fynske Øldage 2005, Odense. Mahogany red with an OK head. Aroma hoppy with notes of roasted malt. The flavour has notes of roasted malt, flower, fruit and a very light bitterness and the finish has a dry citrus note.

nimbleprop (4869) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 19, 2006
The description says this is a bitter, but it looked, poured and smelled just like a porter. Looked alot like a cold glass of coco-cola. Heavy aroma of roasted malt. Flavor is strange and confused. Initially you get the malt flavor, not as roasted as the aroma might let on either. Very watery in your mouth which probably dilutes the true flavor. Finish is watery clean and brings the slight coffee flavors. I bet if they boiled this harder they might wind up with a more concentrated flavor, but as is, this was not very memorable.
