Leighton (11315) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2013
Bottle at a ChrisO tasting - London. Pours clear, orange-gold with a foamy white head. Light toasty malts on the nose, faint leaves. Mild sweetness in the flavor, toasty dough. Kind of bland. Faint wood and leaves. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Boring finish, some leafy bitterness and toast. Drinkable just very pedestrian.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2014
Bottled 04/04/14. A dark brown coloured beer with a white head. Very fruity and malty. Grainy and chewy. A bit of jam. Seems quite hoppy really but ends up being too fruity chewy.

DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle from B&M drank at home, 24/12/12. Chestnut with a dissipating cream collar. Aniseed, sprouts, nutty malt aroma. Pleasant if unexciting with bitter walnut, digestive biscuit and aniseed-spicy English hop. Coffee-dunked butter biscuit hints. OK.

johndoughty (4001) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Bronze with a small head.Slightly malty and not really what it pretends to be-a winter beer. Pretty boring and nondescript.

BlackHaddock (3892) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2013
500ml Bottle: best before Nov 2014, poured into two half-pint tumblers on 15 Feb 2013 and shared with a mate. Pleasant reddy brown body, the biege head hung around awhile. Malts rule the aroma and taste: spiced up somewhat, it tries to be a íwinter warmerí without the strength or depth of flavours. Nice enough, but lacks true class or craftmanship in its feel and presence: it is a fairly cheap brew,mostly for the cut price supermarket and lower end of the booze shop trade, so my comments should be taken with that in mind. OK more than great, it doesnít pretent to be overly special and it isnít: the shiney labelling is typical of the brewery and helps to make the beer stand out on the shelves, why not? Happy with the beer: but would have been upset if Iíd paid a lot for it.

rauchbier (3616) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle, from Rhythm & Booze, Barton upon Humber. Deep chestnut gold, no head and minimal condition. Low fruity malt and trace hop resin in the nose, slight chocolate powder bitterness in the mouth with a low malt sweetness and some oxidation, finish is briefly bitter then lingering but muted chocolate sweetness

allmyvinyl (3601) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 5, 2013
500mnl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours chestnut brown with little to no head. Aromas, such as they are, are light red fruit and caramel. Light spice on the taste. Finishes unexcitingly. I said when I bought this, "Itíll probably be terrible, but letís give it a go". Not terrible, but not great.
