Scopey (7404) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2013
Keg at CP&K. It pours hazy amber with a small yellowish-white head. The nose is lemon poppy seed caked, orange, bread, caramel and faint Irn Bru. The taste is orange sponge cake, caramel, wood, light varnish and zesty citrus with a dry, somewhat citric finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. I found it rather flavoursome and well balanced. Tasty.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden amber with a red tint and a minimal beige head. Aroma is toasted malt, roasted malt, hay, bread, light estery pear, phenolic, smoke. Taste is near medium sweet, medium bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is average. Finishes toasted malty and hoppy. I kinda liked this one.

Scent is bready with touch of spice. Pours clear amber with lasting white head. Starts spicy and finishes sweet. Carbonation is lighter than expected. Draft - Trappeze Pub - Athens, GA

ChainGangGuy (4420) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2014
22 ounce bottle - $6.48 at Sherlock’s in Marietta, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, amber-orange body with a finger and finger only of white foam.

Smell: Sweet accented bready, softly toasted malts with a slender waft of fruit and nuts. Very meager hop note, but I’m getting to this a bit later than I probably should. I was unfair and I apologize for my poor behavior.

Taste: Bready maltiness, lightly toasty, blended with a restrained toffee-like sweetness, a swell of fruitiness, toasted cashew, and subtle spiciness from the lightly bitter Perle hops. The sweet maltiness and almost berryish fruitiness persists after the bitter subsides on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just on the underside of medium carbonation.

Overall: Not perfect, but smooth, drinkable, served alongside some grilled cheddarwurst from local Heywood’s Provision.

GTAEgeek (1286) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 4, 2014
22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy orange, with a big, frothy, beige head. Caramel, oranges, coriander, light floral hops, and sourdough. Bready sweetness, with a light bitterness. Light body, chalky, a little sharp, and astringent. Overall, this is a nice, flavorful, and dangerously drinkable beer. Mellow, balanced, and well done.

Brigadier (3095) - Clevelandish, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2014
12 ounce bottle
Thanks to buffalohead for sharing a fine Oktoberfest. A reasonable introduction to Westbrook gives me the sense that rather than going big or trying to make everything sour they’d rather focus on the basics. Depending on how hard this is to acquire I might trade for a few more of their regulars once I make some room in the cellar or do more traveling.

Aroma / Appearance - A semifluid caramel base supports a pillar of thin head. Butterscotch, honey, and light malts open up over the course of a few minutes. Clean and simple, it gets the job done with much flash.

Flavor / Palate - Light maltiness sweetens the palate. A bit of polish carries the mouthfeel to a refreshing finish of caramel and honey. No wonder the brewery has so much buzz right now. If they ever expand into the Ohio market I’ll definitely grab a couple of bottles at the local store.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Theis. Pours a hazy amber colour with a small, off-white head. Sweet caramellish aroma with some nice flowery hops. Medium body, caramel and slightly ashy, a sophisticated flowery touch. Quite some bittering hops. 250113
