500ml bottle, BB Aug 14
Dark golden in the glass, fluffy white head. The beer starts smooth and dry. For the Bitter, I miss the typical Ale-yeast characteristics a bit. The mainpart is malty, dry-malty, hints of roast. On the tongue remains a nice bitter-dry and malty aftertaste, which I like very much.
Nice brew that gets better till the end. --> 10/11/12/11

Creedence (282) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2013
500ml bottle with friends. Pours a hazy amber, with a thin patchy head. Aroma of wood and toffee. Taste is medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Slightly woody. Bitter dry lasting aftertaste, a little metallic, and smooth. Fairly dull, but it’s grand nonetheless.

Amber copper pour, nice white head. Toasted malt nose, uncomplex. Flavour similar. Thin bodied, fizzy, short finish. Boring.

flying_pig (898) - SCOTLAND - JAN 16, 2013
Bottle (500ml from Asda, £1.76):
Light with sweet malts and some very light fruit. There are a few floral notes and a very slightly nutty aroma too.
Light copper topped with a bubbly, white head about half a centimeter tall and with about average retention.
Sweet and malty with a bit of earthy bitterness as well. There is a nutty flavour too and some lighter spice in the background.
Light medium body with medium carbonation & a clean and dry, bitter finish that is fairly crisp.

Another fairly average beer from the Whitewater brewery, pleasant and drinkable but lacking anything out of the ordinary. A pretty malty flavour throughout but it didn’t have too much else really.

Pigs Ear. The Long Good Friday teamed up with ChrisO. Clear gold - amber beer. Suddy off white head. Palate is light and fairly crisp. Passable hops - tangy dried fruits and a little orange. Semi dry finish with more mild dried fruits. Okay.

Theydon_Bois (7935) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle at parents house - 24/08/12. Clear golden amber with a decent off-white head. Sweet malt, candy floss, peach, cinnamon, rhubarb and ginger in the nose. Hops in the taste, citrus fruit and spices. Medium bodied with carbonation at the high end leading to a dry finish. Pleasant enough drinking.
