TBone (14267) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 29, 2011
Bottled 500ml (BZ, BB 08/2011)
Ok, this one goes to Prince William. Nice dark amber-copper color, steady creamy beige head, lots of lace. Aroma has licorice, rye bread and caramel. Good body for this ABV. Flavor is bready, caramelly and toffeish - lots of crystal malts as bottle indicates. Finishing to light hoppyness. First time I’ve had a beer with Bobek (Styrian Goldings variation probably) hops I think. Anyhow it doesn’t give so much citrus to this brew even with Cascade. But quite likeable 4% brew.

ladnewton (1616) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2010
Cask via handpump through sparkler, at the Bon Accord, Glasgow, on 22nd April 2010. Brown with pale yellow head giving some lacing. Spicy with touches of allspice, and citric hop. Some black pepper. Main kick similar to that of a good dry white wine; citric finish on a smooth, lightly textured mouthfeel.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2010
[500ml bottle, Tescos Edinburgh] Very pleasant nut-brown colour with a faint reddish hue, half-inch head on pouring that quickly disperses to form a thin lacing. Very soft on the palate, nice nutty malt characters leading to a sweet aftertaste with toffee flavours. Highly drinkable red ale, perfect for Autumn [17102010]
