maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2007
Bottled. A copper coloured beer with a white head. The aroma has good piney hops as does the flavour. Well balanced with malt and a smooth texture, but there are signs of infection. Just typical that a promising English BCA is tainted in this way. Send me another bottle Mr Tunnel.

harrisoni (13704) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Cask gravity at Nottingham BF 2007. Orange/gold with disappearing head. American piney grapefruit hop aroma. Some syrupy malt. Tangerine/clementine fruit. Good condition. Gets better as it goes down. US hops are reasonably understated. Piney throughout.

DruncanVeasey (7191) - NUNEATON, Top 18, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 Bottled. Big, quenching and fruitily hopped. Pithy grapefruit and Jelly Tot tang. Apricot murk slicked with white scum. That yeasty apple peel note that seems to characterise all of their beers, but here it’s entirely appropriate. Zestily dry with softening creamy malt. Almost a hint of Orval. The best Tunnel I’ve sampled to date.

leaparsons (8068) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2007
Cask, Melton Fest 07. Golden with no head. Aromas are clean and hoppy with spiced oranges. Some caramel and citrus. Flavours are caramel and toffee malts with marmalade fruitiness. Fairly hoppy on the finish.

imdownthepub (10210) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 25, 2007
Bottle conditioned, 500ml. Orange amber with an outrageously volcanic head, I lost a third of the beer while it fizzed. Initially I thought that this wasn’t very good, slightly tart from the refermentation, but it was hoppy and light enough for a second thought. There is fruit and a slight caramel note. Better than the initial reaction.

Bottle. Amber beer with a light head. The aroma is well hopped and dry with an element of citrus, and the flavour is mildly fruity dry. Overall an average beer.
