A Mes rate: Cask at the Market (No) Porter.
Semi hazy amber gold with a thin white film topping. Big and fruity with some candy sugar and barley. The extra booze is showing slightly but it’s not killing it. Sugary finish with some late dryness. Lots of length. Straight forward but enjoyable.

Desverger (6951) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2013
Cask at Charlie's Bar - dark amber pour with a beige head. Strong caramel malts, toffee, dried fruits, quite medium heavy in body/texture, good bitter finish - good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Idiosynkrasie (5943) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 16, 2014
500ml bottle. Hazy, dark golden amber colour with small, frothy, fading, off-white head. Malty aroma with toffee notes, some malt-spiciness with hints of lovage, soup cube, marmite, dusty dry fruit, port. Taste is minimally sweet malty, some malt-spiciness, again hints of toffee, marmite, port, raisins. Not fully unbefitting in its shopworn, old-fashioned style considering the maintenance of traditionalism one may encounter at least to a minor degree at Oxbridge. Nice to revisit an historic Ale for catching a glimpse of it... once.

SilkTork (5506) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2009
Dover Beer Fest. A typical well made old fashioned, characterful, hoppy premium bitter from Westerham. They are a damn fine brewery. It must be the yeast. Great character. It must be the brewer. Well balanced. Great brew.

AshtonMcCobb (4899) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2015
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - a lovely lava colour. A nice fluffy head. Nose - pancakes and syrup. Taste - wood and then syrup again. Bitter salad leaves. Then wood tannins return. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry woody tannic finish. Overall - gnarly but good.

Beersiveknown (4854) - NORTHERN IRELAND - DEC 21, 2014
Bottle at home from ales by mail, aged 18 months
slightly hazy mid amber with rich honey grain nose, like wash fresh out of a distillery tun. Rich fruity yeast esters, some warming booze. Medium bodied, gentle carbonation, sweet, green apple, honey, weetabix, lots of esters, little bitterness fairly brief finish some leafy vegetable notes and sherry suggestions. Fun to try but not my style.
