Almost clear amber beer with a big pale cream coloured head. Palate is minerally crisp. Good orange and tangerine citric hops. Goes well with the lightly smoky malt. Finishes with thin creamy malt and minerals. Decent.

Bottle during the High Speed Tasting Pt. II on the train back to London after the Black Country Bus Tour. This one I purchased at Cotteridge Wines. Pours clear, deep gold with a warm, frothy white head. Nose of light farts and orange citrus. Light sweet flavor, some ham, dry straw, oranges. Light bodied with high carbonation. Some further citrus notes on the finish, milder ham, dry bread. OK. Kind of odd. Theydon_Bois (21410) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2013

Cask at Friends of Ham. Sure this was the same beer others are rating, but was definitely yellow, not brown! Aromas of smoke were muted on the nose, but came through in the taste. Little to no carbonation. Hints of caramel and Belgian yeast. Interesting.

Bottle picked up at ’Jacks’, Westholme Stores, Goring-on-Thames, Oxon. Consumed at home Sunday 15th September 2013 Cloudy amber/muddy light brown colour. Fresh, tingly nose, I would have hoped to have detected a little smokiness but I can’t. Taste is fresh, clean, soft carbonation late subtle smokiness and even a unintentional nod to Orval in the finish. This comes across as a more saison style beer to me, its fine but no great shakes.

Bottle. Hazy golden brown with an off white foam. Aromas are toasted malts with rye bread and light smoke. Bready yeast with hints of earthy pear and traces of banana and metal. Raisins with herbal and spicy aspects. Flavours are rye toast with floral notes and some lemon. Herbal with toffee and bready, zesty yeast. Spicy on the finish. Very nice. olio (10668) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 10, 2013
50 cl bottle. BBE 31.03.2014.jmgreenuk (10322) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 19, 2013
Pours amber color with a huge frothy head. Aroma is surprisingly strong with smoke, some grass, yeast notes and hops also. Flavor of smoky malts, caramel, mild wet hay, hops and faint goose berries at the end, distant yeast also. Medium carbonation, light-bodied, mildly bitter. I didn’t actually have that high hopes for this one but it managed to surprise me. The smokiness works very well considering the light body. Nice.
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is strong yeast, almost medicinal band aid and woody. The flavour is medium bitter with a strange, fairly unpleasant yeasty, slightly smoky palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a long weird bitter finish. deanso (10258) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - NOV 19, 2013
