SilkTork (5412) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - AUG 23, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2004 Gravity, Frog & Toad Body Parts Beer Festival. Traditional bitter. Sweet and sickly aroma like a decomposing body with bee's wax poured over the remains of the flesh. Quite light and clean tasting despite the heavy aroma. Uses four malts and two different hops to achieve an average homebrew. [2.1]
JDW Rochester Amber bitter. Neutral to dry palate. Some tannic qualities. Caramel. Slight fruit. A hint of roasty bits. A pleasant, fresh session bitter of acceptable quality. [2.7]
