Bottle split at Level 42, thanks to Danny, 24/05/16. Rich amber with a decent beige swirl. Nose is airy malts, fruit loaf, marzipan, fruit esters. Taste comprises fruit cake, dates, raisens, light caramel. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation - overcooked in this respect, sweet toasted close. Ok English Strong, the carb level let this down a touch for me.

Flaske fra Det gode brygg (Sandnes), delt med Ovesen mens vÝrteren tappes: en ukontrollert utblŚsing, heldigvis sto jeg over kjÝkkenvasken! Fint lite aroma, og smaken er overdominert av chili. Samme i ettersmaken - a lingering afterburn. Et deleÝl til smŚ glass.

Lovely easy drinking, taste of apples and tingly on the tongue. A little crisp and tangy, a unique flavour and certainly a good Summer drink.

500 ml bottle from Det Gode Brygg, Sandnes. Gusher direct from my fridge, pours clear dark amber with a huge frothy off-white head. Spicy malty aroma, noticeable chilli. Taste is moderate sweet plum, soon overpowered by burning chillies. High carbonated, burning mouthfeel. If you like chilli, try this one, delicious long lasting burn.

Cask (White Hart, Overton) - Dark brown in colour. Dried fruit, pine and berries in the aroma. Fruity, biscuity and moderately hoppy taste with caramel, berries and pine standing out. Not bad and quite pleasant but tastes a bit thin for being 5.5%.

Bottled, 500ml from Gloucester Services, M5 Northbound, Gloucs. Brown amber with off white head. There is an acidic, tart, sour flavour to this, sour yeast, teeth coating. Managed to drink through 2/3rds of this but poured the last. Not great.

Bottle from Tuckers Maltings, Newton Abbot. The tag ultimate pale ale, got my hopes up. But alas they were dashed. Basic golden ale colour, and a slightly malty taste and flavour. Thin body.

From cask at the Roundhouse in Plymouth. Dry and earthy. Looks a little light in colour for a stout. Very light chocolate aroma. Quite drinkable, but lacking any distinctiveness.

Blueberry Brothers Blue Yonder Blueberry Beer
Bottle that Dad shared- cheers. Now, Iíd had a blueberry beer before- St Judes Blue Punch- which to this day remains one of the worst UK beers Iíve had. In addition, blueberries are far from beng my favourite fruit. With that in mind, I approached this beer with some trepidation. Deep amber with a thin cream head. Potent and rather unpleasant smell when the bottle eas opened, with soapy hints. I was a little concerned. However, on drinking it was fortunately much nicer than it smelled. Itís very fruity, with blueberries to the fore but not overpowering the sweet malts behind. A little dryness in the finish offers a reasonable balance. Yíknow what? This isnít half as bad as I feared. Certainly better than the ghastly St Judes effort. Itís actually quite drinkable.

Hunterís Crack Shot
Pours kind of pale golden straw, hazy, with a white head. A slightly sulfurous, eggy note is detectable in the nose with some barnyard aromas, smelling a bit like a bad saison but without the brightness. The flavour is inoffensive, light malty with a subtle bitterness and a delicate soft fruit flavour in the background. Certainly the mouthfeel really is the attribute which comes through for this beer, which is soft, somewhat silky and substantial, within acceptable boundaries for the light style in my opinion although some might find it too thick. This is a fair session beer once you get past the smell and it has been made reasonably well, however it is really very boring and the íaromaí really does let it down.

Bottled, 500ml from The Co-Op in Alcomb, Somerset. Hazy amber with slight head. This is a heavily sweetened beer, honeyed, toffee flavours on a fruity malt. Plummy alcohol notes. Itís ok, but expected a little more.

Hunterís Crispy Pig Apple Session Ale
Bottle. Lager gold slicked with white. Sweet nose of bramley and polished pine anticipating sweetness. Then the disconnect: bitter, not apple-dominated, almond-hinting, way more beer than cider, hints of shrub. Vacant finish. Could use some malt sweetness or honey. Better than expected but an odd fusion of incongruous elements that isnít wholly satisfying.

Hunterís Crack Shot
Bottle from Teign Cellars,Newton Abbot. Sat outside stargazing in a cloud of my own breath post-Hinckley BF if memory serves. Dusty bronze with a slender white head. Aroma of earthy dung flecked roads, tractors, untrimmed bush and unwashed pig. Flavour has a minor added dimension of lemon zest and soft sappy hop with black bin liners of privet. Yeasty and average.

Hunterís LittlePod Vanilla Beer
Bottle from Wathamstow Spar. Aromas of vanillin, spice, cedarwood, light sweetness. Expectecd this to be a porter-style, hadnít realised it was a hoppier beer / black IPA style. Hoppiness/bitterness comes through but with a spice & gently sweet finish.

Hunterís Black Jack
From The Devon Horde. 500ml. Good as headless ruby- strangely transparent for a stout with low to no condition. Aroma of sweet vegetable crisps, red berries, chocolate, rust and redcurrant. Good flavour despite the flatness with soggy malted milk biscuit spread with Nutella malt notes and an abundance of rust and soapy berry, pomegranate-like fruit. Not stout, not conditioned but a decent beer nonetheless.

Hunterís Crispy Pig Apple Session Ale
Cask conditioned at The Old Fire House, Exeter, Devon. Gold with white head. For a minute I thought I was drinking the wrong drink, I hadnít ordered a cider and this was definitely appley. There is a tartness to it, some tanginess and it is cidery. Not to my taste.

Hunterís Devon Dreamer
Bottle from Teign Cellars, Newton Abbot. Dull gold swirling with marmalade floaties under a patchy white skim. Aroma dominated by yeast and fizz; sourish and rustic with notes of rhubarb, TCP, ashtray and pollen. Flavour of the water cut flowers have been standing in swirled in an ashtray. Redeeming flecks of chaff and lime jelly. Saline and hissing. Pale nutty linger.To give it the benefit of doubt probably an unremarkable but perfectly decent GA badly bottled.
