BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, - SEP 17, 2012
A beautiful sunny afternoon on Friday 7th September 2012 saw my father and I join in R.A.T.2012 (Rail Ale Trail part 2). Split between three bars along the Wolverhampton to Shrewsbury railway line: they had over 50 different beers to try: this was one of them. Half-pint, gravity fed in the fest tent behind ‘The Odfellows’ in Shifnal. Light amber, golden brown, you choose: a white head tried to sit on top, but failed to stay around too long. Not too sure how this became CAMRA Champion Beer a few years back as it wasn’t any better than other beers on the day I tried it. Nice blend of flavours with the hops foremost in the smell and taste stakes. Well balanced and a pleasant enough session beer but nothing to set it apart from the rest of the field.

Skipton Beer Festival 2016. Copper-amber coloured ale. Mildly sweetened bitter with an easy-drinking texture and a mid bitterness.

Towey1989 (1821) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2015
Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear deep golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, some toasted malts, slight red berries, a little peach and earthy hops. Taste of caramel, slight red berries, a little peach, maybe subtle lemon and musky, earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, lingering, slightly citrusy, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. Quite a simple malty bitter but with a lot more bitterness than most beers this strength. Decent.

Vladivostok (446) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2015
Mid-amber and served (where I tried it anyway) with a thick creamy head. Flavours of hay and biscuit with bittering hops in balance. Not the most adventurous of recipes but it does well what it was designed to do. Nice.

Bottle at home. A medium golden colour. Quite clear. And also a large head.

Fisler (398) - Bamberg, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2015
Schön bernsteinfarben im Glas, angenehm malziger Aroma. Im Trunk kaum bis keine Kohlensäure, sehr schöne, bitter-malzige Trockenheit, bitter auch im Abgang, leichte Süße. So muss ein Bitter schmecken - und dabei wenig Prozente.

Yup citrus and floral.Reminds me of cascade in american beers. Light as expected. Not the worst. Refreshing and sessionable at strength

dxbrad (50) - West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Pours dark amber and a little flat out of a bottle. A winter warmer - Not overly hoppy but overpowering bitter dry finish for a low abv session ale.

Fast settling, minimal head. Flowery scent with light taste. Palate evolves with malty & nutty flavours. Very drinkable when well kept.

Don2711 (385) - - SEP 8, 2014
Decent drink. Aroma a little faint. Appearance golden brown with thin head. Taste bready becomes more bitter and citrus as the pint goes down. A little too bitter on palate for my taste. Overall better than 10 .
