Estarriol (5) - - JUL 14, 2007
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Cheap in a special offer and I was hoping to find a gem but didn’t drink more than a few mouthfuls. Just not my cup of tea - thin and watery, overly bitter given its little complexity, doesn’t sit well in the stomach. Nice amber colour and acceptable nose. Processed and artifical aftertaste. Glad to have tried any beer but won’t buy again.

Icedwarf (1512) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2017
Lichtbruin bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is bitter hoppig en licht zoet met iets van geroosterd brood en karamel. Verrassend goed bier.

Davros IX (127) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
A proper, flavoursome English bitter. A low abv that seems at odds with the nice, rich flavour of malt and the bitterness of hops. This is one hell of a session beer and I really enjoyed it.

GeorgePratt (67) - Stockport, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2017
Pours a dark Amber with a non existent off white head which disappears very quickly. Aromas of honey, malts, oak, charcoal. Metallic tasting malt with an even more metallic finish. Poor.

Bottle. Amber in colour. Malty; toasty malts, buttery caramel. Fruity; citrus orange. Hoppy; grassy hops. Robust malty fruity full-flavoured ale. Long bitter finish. Easy Drinking. (2014-10-21)

Marko (5403) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 1, 2017
Bottle, Victa Belvedere, shared with heavy. Poured a clear dark amber body wtih a white head. Mild sweetish doughy aroma, meh. Soft, flat taste, doughy maltiness, herbal, perfumey hoppiness. OK, has enough taste for 3.4%, but I see no reason to purchase a 3.4% beer for this price ever again.
