Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - AUG 31, 2012
THOUGHTS: Nice and fruity. Also rather malty. Fairly smooth and rather British. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured an ever so slightly hazy, medium, slightly brownish, orangey amber with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma had light to moderate grain, cereal and caramel; light to moderate herbal and citrus hops; and light to moderate fruity and spicy yeast. The initial flavor was light to moderately sweet, lightly acidic and slightly bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet, slightly acidic; and light to moderately bitter. There was caramel malt, fruity and spicy yeast, fruits, honey, citrus hops, herbal and earthy hops, and metallic hops. The medium body was fairly oily, but also slightly syrupy, then dry with tingly carbonation and a dry, slightly metallic, slightly alcoholic and lightly astringent finish.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Orange amber pour with a small head. Aroma of mild raspberry or some other tart berry. A bit of yeast in the aroma as well. Palate is slightly creamy and carbonated. Grain, butter, and a nice malt profile in the taste.

FriarHop (122) - Long Beach, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2012
The true "full moon" beer! Pours a beautiful, dark red with a frothy head that slowly dissipates to a thin lacing. One of the finest English bitters I've had. I would call this a dark bitter. Reminds me of my favorite, Riggwelter from Black Sheep brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sabor forte e marcante, ótima cerveja. Feita apenas em noites de lua cheia (pelo menos de acordo com o rótulo...)

@ Basunen: ganska medioker doft men smaken är inte den värsta. Lite banan och citrus. Ganska frisk men lite medioker. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jercraigs (8666) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
2012-07-21. Crisp dark amber, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is sweet and malty, caramel malt, mild earth accents below. English malt character overall, very light toasty malt touches. Mild aroma, sweetly malty, mild fruity character over light toasty caramel malt. 6+ Average plus bodied palate is smooth and pretty well suited to the beer. Alcohol is not at all noticeable while chilled. Simple, enjoyable, it grows on me. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

A little bitter taste, not much smell, but not so special beer. Seems like the brewery just thrown together something quickly. Not perhaps quite bad but not quite good either. Do not like this beer. Mediocre, I think this beer is.
