viktorvee (510) - Greater London, - NOV 22, 2013
A strange aroma of barnyard or manure tinged with a gueze like sourness. Taste of normal golden ale with, some apple, some light sourness, honey, lavender hops, bready malt. Disliked at first but got used to it. Still not totally sold but interesting I guess.

imdownthepub (11473) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Cask conditioned at The Lamb & Flag, Oxford. Gold to amber with white head. Full and fruity beer, there is a sweetish peachy character, then a light caramel, toffee note comes through, slightly boiled sweets. Decent palate. Reasonable beer.

BlackHaddock (4964) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
500ml bottle in The Wild Card Brewery Tap on 28th March 2015. Nice. Golden body, good white crown on top. Caramel nose with a more hop based taste: strange blend but I liked it, hidden sweetness in the brew below the hop bitterness. The feather on the bottles tickle me too!

jmgreenuk (5833) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear straw colour with a thin white head. The aroma is buttery caramel citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a floral hop bitter, light citrus palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Kauge (755) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Mai 2014, (City Beverage, £ 3,20), 50 cl. Jook on tume, mesine ja klaar. Aroom meeldiv: karameljas, heinane, suuuti metalne, soojenedes ülipisut läägelt lilleline ja viigimarjane, ja nüüd kui lugesin etiketilt Nelson Sauvini kohalolu, kangastub silme ette tõepoolest valge vein, aga läbi mingi tihke odravine; soojenedes ilmneb ka konkreetsem suhkrune toon. Maitselt mesine või just suhkrune, samas ka hapukas. Kehalt (pigem raskepoolne kui) keskmik, mullisust omajagu, valget veini meenutava torkava happelisusega. Suutunne ühtaegu veidi õline ning rohkem vesine. Suulae jätab valgeveiniselt kuivaks. Millegipärast seostub 19. saj lõpu Põhja-Prantsusmaa stseenidega, umbes sellistega, kus van Gogh ja Cézanne viljapõlde maalisid. Siin sees on mingi tööstusrevolutsiooni-eelne arhailisus.

downender (7040) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
Cask-conditioned at the Famous Royal Navy Volunteer, Bristol, 3/9/2014. Clear gold in colour with a small, white, head. Easy drinking, with some stone fruits, leafy hop and moderately bitter finish. Fine.

allmyvinyl (6586) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Impromptu tasting of three Two Cocks beers (six cocks?) with Ashton McCobb. This one looks good, but the nose lets it down - all butterscotch and not much else. Taste has light caramel and lime. Might be better hand-pulled?

AshtonMcCobb (4067) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2014
50cl bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - golden with a nicely proportioned head. Nose - initially a hit of lime but unfortunately butterscotch kicks in quite soon after. Taste - caramel, some lime again. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a reasonably dry finish. Overall - nothing special and the nose was a bit of a problem.

Cadk gravity at Tonbridge Siba 2014. Gold clear lasting white head. Good strong golden beer. Some hop on the finish. Decent.
