R4N5H (386) - SINGAPORE - FEB 28, 2015
33cl bottle purchased at Stirchley Wine and Spirits and consumed later that week in Dubai on 27/02/15. Label stated as a rye IPA with an ABV of 6.4%. Cloudy amber colour and light body. Thick white head which quickly disappears. Aroma of apricot and hops. Well carbonated. Dry and bitter taste, which continues on the palate. Some citrus - reminiscent of bitter oranges. Good for an early stage effort from a relatively new brewery but room for improvement.

Fin (8570) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle picked up from Beer Gonzo, Earlsdon, Coventry, Sunday 9th November 2014 Pours murky amber with a little white film atop. Buzzy citus in mouth, sweet but slightly underipe orangesleaving a fuzzy, furry, pithiness (but sweeter than pithy) across tongue and roof of mouth. I like this its got an ever so slightly rough around the edges quality but. Lovely bitterness, marvellous. A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov17. 3.9

Persistent slow gusher. Hazy amber beer, big pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and dry, good fine carbonation. Light caramel malts, a little rye spice. Soap! Light marmalade and citrus on the back end as well some emerging malt cream sweetness. Finishes light. Would be good if not for the infected soapy note. Second infected bottle on the trot from this brewer. Not impressed.

Much better than the pale ale by these guys! Caramel in the nose and the palate, a hint of citrus and decent bitterness, maybe more caramel than I would normally go for, but a decent beer none the less. Worth another try.

DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2015 1)330ml bottle from Beer Gonzo, Coventry. Pours deep opaque red-amber with a fine cream foam. Enticingly juicy blackcurrant, Fruit Salad chew and background husk aroma with a pronounced waft of alcohol. Slick and balanced with robust husk and hints of smoke overlaid with more blackcurrant, soapy floral and melon hop. West coast peach and iced tea coming through. Soft condition. Good lingering husk. The malt bill imparts a bit too thick a Californian accent for my liking but that aside it’s a tasty and well brewed effort from Coventry’s newest brewery and as a Cov lad that makes me happy. Hooray. 737314. 2) Keg at the tap on opening day, 20/06/15. Deep hazed burnt orange with a creamy white top. Fine warm mandarin and grapefruit zest; hint of spliff, Jelly Tot and curry leaf closing with biscuit. Wafts of peach, cedar and grapefruit. Exemplary Coventrian sessions. 848416.
