harrisoni (17284) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 25, 2008
Bottle at Chris_o’s The Wolf tasting. I’ve been looking for Wagtail beers for some time now so I was intrigued to see how they are. Amber colour with lasting beige head. Flemish white pig aroma (as Urbain would say), rather a nice English beer. Not bad. Pretty good hop. Nice enough.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
Bottled, 500ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Pale amber with white head, Light, malty beer with a slightly odd back flavour, coal tar soap comes to mind or Vosene hair shampoo, that type of thing. There is also a light smokiness from the malt. These tend to dominate a little although still quite a drinkable beer.

Bottle @ Chris_o.
Pours light hazy amber. A bubbly off white head on top. Aroma is light strawberries and caramel maltiness. Slight grassy hops. Fine mouthfeel. Quite dry with a good dose of hops and good caramel behind that.

Bottle Conditioned. Clear amber brown with a small head. Aromas are sweet toffee and biscuit malts with spicy hops. Flavours are toffee malts with dry tea. Some pear fruitiness followed by bitter pine and spicy hops. Quite dry on the finish.

Fin (9596) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2008
BCA Bottle from the Dodgi’ Deli’ Cowley Road, Oxford. Had this 23-03-08 Lovely colour, deep rich amber great clarity and a nice off-white head. Tasty, fruity and with far more flavour than a 4.5% beer should have. Nice steady bitterness and good full bodied beer, drying towards the end. Lovely beer.
