Oct 2009: Clear 500ml bottle poured into a normal UK sleeved pint glass. Atheist_Peace (1042) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2012
The beer was a reddy, amber colour, clear and clean looking. On top sat a bubbly head, off-white almost a cream colour.
The aroma was of hops and yeast with a hint of caramels and molasses.
Challenger, Goldings and Fuggles are all used in the brew, the blend of thses hops produces a well balanced and pleasant tasting beer. There is an overiding mini sweetness throughout the drink, the aroma starts it off and the aftertaste reminds you.
I very drinkable beer, even better when on cask and kept well.
500ml bottle. Light copper pour with no head at all. Caramel maltiness on the nose with a grainy edge. Skunky on the palate before that caramel maltiness takes over. Finish is non-existent. Idiosynkrasie (8050) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear dark amber with small frothy off-white head. Dark malt aroma, dark fruit, bitter hop. Taste is like sucking on an ice cube, it’s not pure water, but less a taste than a kind of mouthfeel, metallic and dry. Not bad, but extremely faint. ComradeK (1260) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2011
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber, with a medium off-white head, which lasts fairly well, and leaves reasonable lacing. The nose is very malt-dominated, with biscuit and toffee notes to the forefront, and a trace of honeysuckle lurking behind them. The initial taste is of very mild floral hops, moving into a strongly malty body. Biscuit and toffee again assert themselves, over a very buttery mouthfeel. The finish is again very malty, with buttered toast and a touch of the sort of flavour one associates with oaked white wine. This is a classically restrained bitter - not the most exciting beer in the world, but certainly a decent session ale.
