Can from Raynville super store in Leeds. Pours with a big head, straw to Amber colouration. Taste is like a Czech lager, like an urquell. Not really my thing but something different I suppose.

Roosters Baby Faced Assassin
Bottle to snifter @ White House, Luton
Kolor bursztynowy z obfitą, puszystą i białą jak śnieg pianą. Piana jest drobnoziarnista i wspaniale krążkuje na szkle. Wysoka oponka przykleja się do piwa i nie opuszcza go do ostatniej kropelki. Aromat intensywny cytrusowo-tropikalny. Soczyste owoce takie jak: grejpfrut, pomelo, mandarynki i odrobina moreli. Dalej odrobinę mango i liczi. Na drugiej półkuli żywiczne, sosnowe niuanse. Na koniec odrobina kwiatów. W smaku wytrawne z akcentami skórki od grejpfruta i pomarańczy. Wraz z nimi mandarynki, marakuja i ananas. Goryczka długa, niezalegająca. Intensywny grejpfrutowy finisz. Średnie ciało, średnie wysycenie. Dobrze zbalansowane i bogate IPA. Wytrawne i sesyjne. Najlepsze piwo jakie piłem tamtego dnia.

Can. Mr. Pickles, Sheffield. Clear, pale yellow gold. Sudsy, white head. Nose has lager malts. Grassy hop. Some spicy hop. Some sweet biscuit. Taste is fairly dry, with some spicy bitterness. Light, foamy mouthfeel. A bit soapy. Grassy bitter finish. Hint of sweet on the end. Pretty bland.

Roosters Ragged Point
Can from UBrew and drunk at home. Black beer lasting tan head. Cocoa powder and roasted malt aroma. Some American PNW hop as well. Quite smooth in the mouth. Quite hoppy. I mean what’s the difference between this and a Black IPA. It’ a hoppy stout. Some good chocolate a little dry tar a little dry irish stout character. Some lime from the hop a little grapefruit. It’s a better hoppy stout than a Black IPA. Good.

Roosters California Common
Cask at The Swan Hammersmith as Roosters California Common. Hazy orange, still, scummy off white head. Aroma is airy with some faint citrus and gummy sweets. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is a touch thin with hop flowers, a bit soapy, thin malts, spicy musty finish lingers. Some good aspects but a bit soapy and thin for me, which is a shame as this brewery does some decent stuff.

(Cask at Viisi Penniä, 20160708) The beer poured golden clear. Its head was small, sparse and white. Aroma had fruitiness, grain and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, creamy toffee, pine, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A pleasant hoppy English ale.

Can at home in London - picked up at Offie & Toffee. Pours black-brown with a dense, frothy beige head. Rich, hard dark roast in the aroma, with notes of hearty coffee, burnt grass, baking cocoa. Light sweet flavour with dominant bittersweet chocolate character, more burnt pine, scorched earth. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with lots more dark malt character, burnt sugars, charred toast, sturdy baking cocoa, faint pine resin. Really good stuff overall. Could do with a little more body, but overall it’s really solid.

Cask at the Bootlegger, 19/06/16. Pale golden blonde with a decent white cap. Nose is melon, grass, faint citric peel, toasted grain. Taste comprises orange peel, melon, lemon rind, straw, light bread. Medium to light body, soft carbonation, semi drying close. So so... drinkable but uneventful.

Draught (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Wierd savoury spicy aroma, some lemongrass. Pale, brief loose head. Watery palate. Complete fuckup of a hop taste, some slightly chalky pale malts. Slightly buttery finish, salted butter at that, and a hint of coconut, some lemon later. Looking forward to Mosaic falling out of fashion, it’s a truly horrible hop. This was in perfect condition, exactly as the brewer intended, it’s just that I hate the hop and almost everything that it touches.

Draft at Craft 100 Spring 2016 - Craft Beer Co. Clapham, London. Pours clear, rich gold with a creamy, white head. The aroma holds rindy citrus, grain, minerals. Light to medium sweet flavour with hints of vanilla, pale bread, lemon meringue. Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. OK balance on the finish, with more creamy vanilla character, rindy bitterness. Not bad overall.

Cask at crate. Far better on cask where the fruity punchy mango really comes through. Very pleasant on keg and in a can but I’d like to see this more on cask. Abundant at the moment

From the cask at Reading Beer Festival. Very hoppy citrus aroma. Tasted a bit medicinal, certainly unique but I just found it weird. Hints of burnt plastic.
