La Mad Tom se presenta en un tono mbar entre miel y amarillo, segn la luz natural y con bastantes sedimentos. Vierte una delgada capa de espuma blanca, poco consistente y duradera. En nariz es muy especiada y frutal, con presencia sobre todo de ctricos y uva blanca. En boca tiene menos cuerpo de lo que me esperaba (tiene aspecto de ser ms densa) y es muy fresca. Recuerdo ahumado, predominio de ctricos, y por supuesto toda la carga del lpulo. Precisamente el carcter de su lpulo (Chinook y Citra) es lo que la diferencia de las Bitter tradicionales britnicas. Su amargor es potente, pero est bien ensamblado con la acidez, lo que le proporciona un trago largusimo. Que entra como dios vamos. Una birra sin muchas florituras, pero ms que correcta y un porcentaje de alcohol muy contenido, lo que la convierte en una buena alternativa como cerveza de Sesin.

Very "barnyard" this one: appearance cloudy straw-coloured. Was a bit gushing but without a big head only small one but persistent like a honey badger (the ideal head to my taste). Aroma very nice: fruity (grapefruit) hops, a bit floral. Taste fruity hops, yeast, bread and quite strong for such a low abv. Bitterness only present in the aftertaste: lingering, pleasant. Not a very diverse but very refreshing summer brew. Mouthfeel surprisingly thick.

hawthorne00 (3814) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2016
Bottle, bb 10/17. Clear gold with an inch of white head that never quite disappears. Plenty of gunge is easily left in the bottle. Powerful marmalade aroma with some tropical fruit and toast. Right at the bottom there is funk. The taste starts there and adds damp hay and bretty spices to go with bitter oranges. Slightly sweet with a brooding sour and funky rumble. Finish is dry and really rather bitter. I think many people would be surprised if they ordered a bitter and got this. Assertive and good.

Banzale (246) - FRANCE - OCT 20, 2016
offert par Nutjes. Bouteille de 33cl. Couleur blonde bien prononcer, un peu trouble. Col de mousse (pellicule) present. Au nez, odeur de "renferme", odeur dacide type gueuze ? senteur faible dagrumes (citron...) En bouche, une impression lactique, paisse, une amertume moyenne avec cette note damertume , juste une pointe qui me drange beaucoup ! pas emballer du tout.

nutjes (731) - Heestert-Zwevegem, BELGIUM - OCT 20, 2016
33cl-fles van bij Bierhalle Deconinck te Vichte. U: Lichte gusher. Helder stroblond met grote witte schuimkraag. G: Typisch "funky" en muf Alvinne-aroma. Bij hun zure bieren past dit uitstekend bij bittere is dit voor mij storend. Hieronder kan je vaag wat waarnemen van citrushop maar dit kan het niet goedmaken. S: Bittere aanzet, citrus wat grassig en een beetje kruidig. Hiermee jammer genoeg weer het funky in verweven. M: Leuke, stevige carbonatie.

Lore (2567) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 7, 2016
hazy yellow colour, medium sized, not too stable off-white head; aroma of tropical fruits like mango, maybe some pineapple, too, peach, lemony and floral notes as well as hints of sauerkraut; taste is bittersweet with intensive fruitiness like in the aroma, some biscuits and hints of sauerkraut again; very good, easy to dring bitter!

Pours gold with a fading head. Nose shows heavy funk, soft peach, faint floral notes. Flavours include more funk, horseblanket, leather, a bit musty. A hint of lemon too.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Cloudy yellow-white with a thin white head. It has a tart lemon, citrus and herbal flavour followed by yeast and more tart fruit on the smooth finish. Pretty good.

Inoven (596) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2016
Flesje gedeeld met TomHendriksen. Oranjerood, troebel bier met matig schuim. Aroma is hoppig en fruitig. Dit komt ook in de smaak naar boven. Nasmaak is bitter.

Fles gedronken met Inoven, gekocht met Benzai. Het bier heeft een flinke schuimkraag. Een oranje gele kleur. Een lekker fris bier.
