Keg at Brewdog Edinburgh. Small white head, decent lacing. Clear copper body. Nose is stone fruit, pine. Flavour is caramel, treacle, berries. Light carbonation, good chewy mouthfeel. Like a bigger 5am Saint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Tinaccio (388) - Milano, ITALY - JUN 21, 2017
On Keg at Brewdog Shoreditch, London, UK. It pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is fruity, notes of pine, grass, malts, grain. Taste is light sweet and light bitter. Body is medium to full, carbonation is average. Very very good!

Beese (2741) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2017
Keg at BrewDog Soho. Interesting to see this one back. A nice, quite malty red. Oddly a little funked... I'm not entirely sure this keg hasn't been kicking around a while. NB: the scores are taken from when I had it at the Euston Tap back in 2011.

Sample at MBCC. Pours bright clear copper. Aroma is malty, roasted, balanced hops. Taste is balanced, nice hop bitterness, malty full mouthfeel.

Theydon_Bois (19506) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2017
Keg at BD Soho, 15/05/17. Reddish amber with a decent light beige cap. Nose is berry fruit esters, sweet malt, floral, caramel. Taste comprises biscuit, caramel, cheesecake base, light spice, less red berry notes than the nose, earthy hop dusting, toasted brown sugars. Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a light boost offered. Ok but doesn’t deliver a lot on the ABV in terms of flavour profile and complexity.
