wheresthepath (2335) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2017
Cask at Wye Bridge House (JDW), Buxton. Amber with a thick white head. Decent full body. Let down by the grubby caramel flavour. Some bitter lemon fights its way through the dirt but overall this isn’t doing it for me.

Towey1989 (2832) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2017
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, soft bready malts, some fruit, a hint of apple and subtle spicy hops. Taste of caramel, soft bready malts, some fruit, slight apple, a little orange, a hint of chocolate and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A sweet, malt forward premium bitter but with a dry, hoppy finish. Isn’t exciting but a decent beer.

Butelka. Miedziany kolor. Piana mala biala szybko zanika. Aromat warzywno owocowy z orzechami w tle. W smaku podobnie. Warzywny koktajl z goryczkowym finiszem.

Brandman (2950) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Hazy orange body, white head. Green apple and fudge in aroma. Flavour is bit fizzy, not really real ale. Quite plain.

rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2015
Cask at the O'Connell's, Tampere, Finland. Murky brown color with a small foamy off-white head. Hoppy aroma with mild malty dryness. Mild floral hops and malt in the flavor. A bit sweet. Drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.7
BlackHaddock (7346) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2014
30th Aug 2014, cask pint at the Briar Rose, Birmingham. Pours a clear amber with an off white head that stayed around and gave off some good lacing. Malt lead in the nose with a slight citrus undertone, malts ruled the taste too with a semi-sweet caramel and dark fruit like flavours. Decent.
