Wild Beer Tepache 3.4  
Wild Beer Shepton Mallet, Somerset
Draught at Wild Beer @ Wapping Wharf, Bristol. Clouded orange to brown with white head. Tropical fruit notes to the fore with this one, quite acidic in character though, tart, tongue coating sharpness, a little tough on the palate. It's fine if a little harsh.

Beachwood Blendery Chaos is a Friend of Mine 3.6  
Beachwood Blendery Long Beach, California
Wazig blond bier met zeer weinig wit schuim. Geur: zacht zurig, lichte stalgeur, licht fruitig, wat citrus. Smaak: citrus zurig. Medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: licht zoetig en zurig.

Ballast Point Aloha Sculpin 3.9  
12oz bottle, into a tulip glass. Pours hazy dark golden with medium lacy white head. Aroma is sweet and fruity yeast, with floral and juicy hops. Taste is similar - really tropical and juicy up front, the yeast comes on strong on the finish and leaves a really dry white wine flavor on the palate. Quite different from the rest of the Sculpin family, guessing that's the direction BP is headed these days. Not bad, some great flavor here, probably wouldn't choose this over OG Sculpin though.

Slater's Premium 3.1  
Slater's Stafford, Staffordshire
Cask at the Antelope in Surbiton. Decent balance, some sweet malt and orange marmalade. Nice.

De Garde Deutsche Hose 3.8  
De Garde Brewing Tillamook, Oregon
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is somewhat hop forward with an herbal, grassy note. Medium light peppery, phenolic note and moderate grain notes. Hints of grain, pineapple and citrus. Faint oak. Pours a hazy, dull, gold color with a large, frothy, white head that recedes steadily to a thin film that clumps on the edges. Flavor has a moderate acidity with light grain notes. Fairly fruity with quite a bit of pineapple. Light citrus and grain notes with a hint of salinity. Light oak notes. Medium hop notes, grassy and herbal with light phenolics that are accentuated by the hops. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice gose but one I wished I drank fresher. The hop profile has become a bit grassy and the phenolics seem to be kicking up a bit.

Woodland Empire Ada County Stout 3.9  
Can from LaBodega, black beer, huge, thick, tenacious walnut colored head, chunky lace. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, caramel, malt. Taste is vanilla, cookies, coffee, whiskey, chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, kahlua. Palate is rich and thick, carbonation moderate. This is a tad hot, but sweet enough it doesn’t matter. As a desert beer, it’s about right, but dry it ain’t.
