ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 24, 2012
Tasting from August 2011.
Radiant copper body that is finely carbonated and capped off by a dollop of white cream that is lasting. Skunky, musty malt and floral hop aroma has hints of white grapes, stewed pear and apples. Oddly rubbery and plastic on the palate; phenolic, even smoky with a bready midriff and stale hop tail that shows only the slightest hint of fruit esters. Finishes crisp - I could be mistaken at thinking euro-lager while drinking this! Watery and ill defined. Not in the best of form. A re-rate to be fair!

StueyD (1581) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - AUG 17, 2012
Mid amber gold coloured ale with a thickish white head. Light hop aroma with a malty background. Medium mouthfeel. The taste follows on from the aroma, fruity hop flavours are matched by a slightly sweet malt taste. The finish is quite long and fruity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2012
Pours a light golden brown with decent foamy off white head. Aroma is similar to many Adnams beers, ample caramel and cereal malts, a touch of honey, light, grassy hops. Taste is very solid for such a relatively low alcohol beer. Much the same malt notes but the hops are very much more evident here. Good, crisp honey tinged bitterness with a solid, lingering after taste. Every time I get complacent about the idea that only higher alcohol beers have the depth of flavour that will keep me interested I remember beers like this which offer a lot of taste at modest ABV without tasting watery. Very solid.

Grzesiek79 (4247) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 20, 2012
Bardzo wytrawny i goryczkowy bitter. Chmiel tu dominuje. Piwo po prostu nim pachnie, a w smaku zdecydowanie przeważa mocna goryczka. Jasna barwa skrywa aromaty rżnych rodzajw chmielu. Podobny do najlepszych IPA

BlackHaddock (7092) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
The normal (fairly new) brown bottle Adnams use, 500ml and only 3.4%ABV, best before 6 Feb 2010, drank July 2009. Poured into an Old Speckled Hen vase shaped pint glass. Looked fine, a bright chestnut brown body with an off-white head that tried to hang around but failed. Lacing stayed at the top of the glass otherwise I just had a collar around the beer as it sank down the glass with each sip. Aroma was initially weak, some nuts and earthy esters, a little maltiness was also present as the beer warmed in the glass. I was pleasantly surprised by the extent of the flavours and their strenght considering the ABV. Malty at first, then a mellow hoppy aftertaste. Refreshing and mature, impressed. I dont normally like weaker beers, but this is one Id have again and again, ideal for a long session or if working early the next day.

Bottle from Vaaland, Bryne. Pours clear light golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of earthy hops. Taste is light nutty malts with some citrussy and grassy hops towards the end. Quite good, considering the low abv, the body is weak, but refreshing. Fizzy carbonation.
