wimpyjoe (3906) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from Aldi, Manchester. Deep hazy amber with a thin head. Has a tasty smooth sweet grainy malt character with lots of very good fruit flavours to compliment this. .

jd543 (398) - SCOTLAND - OCT 28, 2013
Orange with a thin off-white head. Quite malty aroma, toffee, raisin. Taste is too sweet, not that well balanced. Thin texture, light carbonation. Not that great, to be honest.

pivnizub (8856) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle: Copper coloured, a bit unclear, almost no head, fruity-bready nose with a tinge of vegetables, but a hoppy background; mild to moderate bitter-sweet finish, light bodied to watery and harsh; thin bitter-sweet finish. Below average…

allmyvinyl (3353) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 2, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours medium brown with a thin, short-lived head. Aromas of raisin, toffee and caramel with malt. Touch of hops comes through later. Taste is too sweet, not enough balance. Bit sticky on the texture. Long, sweet finish. OK.

shoestring (265) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - SEP 21, 2013

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 27, 2013
courtesy of fiulijn - clear amber beer with a modest foam left; caramelish malty tones; thin-bodied, low bitterness and pretty dry; hints of flowers and caramel in the finish - deeply modest and insignificant

tombyars (1357) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAY 23, 2013
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in May 2013. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear copper with a thin off white head. Distinct malty aroma with sweet toffee overtones. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a robust maltloaf base with notes of creamy highland toffee and stewed prunes. Good smack of earthy flavoured hops in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is chewy and malty with dry vinous oak cask notes but not too dry though. A decent session 80/ and recommended.

Idiosynkrasie (3813) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 1, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear dark amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Caramel malty aroma with a fruity touch of red berries and cautious bitter hoppy overtones. Taste is dry fruity, hints of red berries and fruit parings, metallic echoes.

stravale (2100) - Near Carrick-on-Shannon, IRELAND - MAR 11, 2013
Cask @ JDW Elgin [100313]
Amber copper, clear, thin white head
Aroma of light caramel, little on the nose
Taste of caramel malt, some hay, light fruits, touch of metallic bitterness, not clean, touch vegetal, not great at all
Palate - thinnish body, little oily. Finish as main flavour, dull, bit dry, some light yeasty hay in the finish
Overall - 80/- are supposed to be nice and malty. This was just meh meh meh...didn’t finish the half
