Grönwohlder Pils 3.3  
Grönwohlder Hausbrauerei Grönwohld, Schleswig-Holstein
Can from Systembolaget under the name Das Pils. Bready malty with pale bread and some light herbal hops and hay. Similar taste. Slight rough flavour profile but besides that better then expected. olsvammel

Kent Berry Mild Porter 3.4  
Kent West Malling, Kent
September 17, 2015 - at Holborn Whippet; cask. Looks great - deep refractive brownish red with a lasting small tan foamy head. Interesting aroma - light treacle/molasses, coffee flavoured toffee, background medium roast coffee bean, a little bit of dry bitterness to drive down the sweetness some. Taste is quite earthy, I assume the water used was quite mineral-laden - has a sharp, almost iron bite to it - definitely less sweet than the aroma ... very light alcohol as well, plus some acidity from one of those classic UK hops (no idea which). Light and airy body - almost watery, a tad under-carbonated, finishes dry and almost gritty - those minerals really emerge in the aftertaste. My only complaint would be just a wee bit too thin.

Acorn Darkness 3.6  
Acorn Wombwell, South Yorkshire
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall as Acorn Darkness. Almost black in this light, foamy light brown head leaves full lacing. Aroma is ashy, light dates, some smoke. Body is light and smooth with lowish carbonation. Taste is rounded twiggy malts, touches of toffee and ash, a little watery towards the finish with light malt sugars offset with a little ash, hints of dental rinse, soft earthy linger. A pretty well judged mild - never got insipid and is crazy drinkable. Relatively generous with score here to take style into account. The_Osprey

Wiethaler Black Moon 2.9  
Brauerei Wiethaler Lauf-Neunhof, Bavaria
Pours a black color, with a beige foam. Aroma of dark chocolates, coffee, licorice, vanilla, caramel. kevnic2008

Voodoo Vivrant Thing 3.6  
Voodoo Brewing Co. Meadville, Pennsylvania
Pours golden with some floaties. The head dissipates and leaves a ring around my glass. The aroma is of stone fruit. I got peaches, apricots, hoppy onion like spice, sugar, and bread like malted grains. Taste is of sugary malted grains, minor fruity taste, and clean medium bitterness intensity. The finish is pleasant and softly lingers. The body is well done and the mouth feel is good. Overall a good pale ale that’s about a month old. Advocate_Ames

London Brick Red Rye Ale 4.0  
Redemption Brewing Company Tottenham , Greater London
September 17, 2015 - at Holborn Whippet; keg draught. This was labelled "Kernel London Brick" and the board mentioned it was a collab - clearly it’s this entry, not the one with two rates. Hazy brick-coloured, with a lasting creamy beige head, top looker this one. Aroma has a nice rye bite, some resin bitterness, plenty of vaguely fruity malt backing - very nice. Taste is extremely malty - quite "red (yeah, I know) - some graham cracker, hint of plum - mostly floral/resin bitterness and the right amount of alcohol for a borderline "big" beer - very impressive. Solid, chewy, a bit astringent, decent carbonation, the finish is fairly long and approaches a grapefruit pith linger, but it never overwhelms, neither does the solid alcohol presence. This is a 4.0 for me. HogTownHarry

Wychwood King Goblin (Cask) 3.2  
Wychwood (Marston’s) Witney, Oxfordshire
Cask handpull at Hamilton Hall as Wychwood King Goblin, 6%. The lesser spotted cask version. Pours brown with an amber orange hue, quite clear to light, still with a foamy off white head. Aroma is boozy, fruitcake. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is rich malts, dark dried fruits, fig biscuits, toasted teacake, touch salty in the finish. Smells quite harsh but the taste is more rounded. Ok actually. Didn’t think I’d like it but a third was all right. The_Osprey

About medium body and average carbonation. It’s been a while since I had a radler. This tastes pretty ok I think. Not super sweet and not very chemical, quite refreshing. sjogro
