UPDATED: JUL 12, 2011 Bottled from Brown & Green @ Derby Garden Centre. Slight light bread nose, clear tan body, sweet notes with gentle lemon hop, soft feel as the CO2 collapses. Good to see another new Derby brewer make a confident start

Scopey (7396) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2011
Bottle at chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig ’11. It pours amber, with a thin foamy white head and low carbonation. The nose is overpowering sulphur and rotten eggs. The taste is lime, cardboard, soap, egg, brown bread and toasted malt, with a dull bitterness in finish. The nose is far too off-putting to enjoy this one, even if the taste is ok.

planky84 (2143) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle at Chris O’s pre GBBF shindig. Amber pour with a white head. Sulphur and malt aroma. Despite the nose the flavour isn’t too bad. A splash of malts and fruit combine to make this a nicely passable brew.

Bottle at ChrisO’s Pre-GBBF Shindig 2011. Clear gold pour with a fine, white head. Sweaty malts, light toast on the nose. Flavor is not too sweet, some further light toast. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Mild finish, faint bitterness. OK.
