Can @ cafe Derat, large sample. Hazy amber color, short frothy head. Aroma of caramel and toffee, piney and grapefruity hops. Toffee sweetness, caramel fudge, but also hoppy bitterness. Wonderfully balanced and caramel body is big enough to make it complex and very tasty. Awesome brew.

Magic Rock High Wire Grapefruit
Can 0,5l. Pours an orange colour with a white head and fairly solid lacing. Pulpy grapefruit aroma with some other hop notes. The experience is a failure, not in taste, not in aroma, but their inabillity to use the bitterness of grapefruit to enhance the bitterness from the hops. Instead the grapefruit appears as a layer that your palate has to penetrate to get to the pale ale taste. It taste like malt and hint of hops with a grapefruit after taste. The taste is not bad, but it didnt work. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.1%. Gose. Poured out gold. 6ºSRM. Nose has some beery sweetness and aroma. There is a wheaty aroma to the nose like a weissbier and some element of a salty fullness to the nose. Like putting your nose to a barrel of salt or smelling a fresh sea salt pretzel. Mouthfeel is water. Palate is palate malt and wheat malt flavors of sweet dough. Sour is mild and nicely balanced by the salt which is present but not obtrusive. There is a nice dill pickle sort of thing going on with the overall tasting experience.

Restrained aroma in a jet black pour. Impressive coffee cocoa flavour with hints of vanilla and licorice adding subtle complexity. An excellent example of the style - but somewhat overshadowed by their "Common Grounds" (to my taste at least).

Big coffee aroma in a deep black pour. Taste is similarly big on the coffee with just a hint of cocoa. Background of hops is bracing and provides a crisp clean finish that is the epitome of ’moreish’. Hugely impressive for the strength and one of the best examples of the style I’ve had.

Can at home. Yellow colour, slight haze, very thin head. Good aroma, slight hop and fruit, the sourness is also there. Taste is slightly sweet to start thanks to the gooseberry, then a gentle bitterness. Flavours of tart fruit, saltiness and a short, sharp finish. Tart and refreshing, not bad at all.

Mooi oranjekleurig licht troebel bier met fijne witte schuimkraag. Zeer fris fruitig aroma van perzik, meloen, ananas, beetje banaan, citrus. Zeer creamy en soepel van smaak. Doet mij zelfs beetje denken aan een yoghurt toetje (danoontje). Licht bittere afdronk. Craft bier in blik blijft wennen voor mij maar deze is wel erg lekker.

At home, 13/06/16. Can bought from Winerack, West Byfleet. Sweet but hoppy aroma - enticing if not overly strong. Dark amber in colour, a beige head which soon disappears. Bitter flavour, complemented by an interesting palate: a medium body, with an oily texture and some carbonation coming through. A good drinkable amber ale.

Burk från SB. Blekgul lätt disig med liten vit skumkrona. Lätt syrlig doft med sälta, torrt hö och lite bärighet. Halvstor kropp. Frisk, bara en liten syra och markant sälta. Saknar fruktigheten från bären, känns lite tom.

Hazy gold with a loose white head. Bright aroma of kumquats, just ripe mango, lime, light bread. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Very punchy fruit - citrus, lots of tropical fruit, some nectarine - with just enough malt behind. Bitterness doesn’t match the hop aromatics. Interesting how the softness of the malt makes it obvious that it’s English. Good.
