Theydon_Bois (21418) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle at the Sussex Arms, Twickenhamd Green - Jan ’12. Poured to a mahogany brown colour, red tinges when held to the light and a small white/beige head. A malty aroma greets the nose along with caramel and light hopping. In the taste, malts, a little dried fruit, caramel/toffee and a little warming alcohol especially in the finish. Mouthfeel is of a medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation and fairly drinkable and smooth.

harrisoni (19532) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2010
Bottle at The Rake. Not a great aroma. But its a decent sub ESB malty beer. Better in mouth and finish than on aroma. Tad oxidised on aroma. Fine.

Oakes (19332) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2012 Draught, 2012. Murky amber colour. Sweet with a figgy character. Too sweet and the phenols are too strong. Still not into this one.

Bottle, Brewery Creek, 2008
Gold-tinged amber-brown colour. It’s a really nice colour, actually. Weak head. Toasty, earthy nose with some brown sugar and tobaccoey hop notes. Heavily toasty palate with caramel & cheesy oxidized hop accents. Sweetish finish. Rather boring.

Clear deep ruby color, good creamy beige head. Light citrus, caramel and berries in the nose. Medium-bodied. Licorice, malts, light hoppyness. Very much like an English ESB-style brew. Balanced but a bit bland.

355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge, for [email protected])
Mega mushroom aroma. Dirty taste. Sticky. Really not a good drinker at all. Sorry guys, don’t hold this against me.

Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle - Caramel and roasted malts with a bit of alcohol burn. Dark clear copper with a brown head. Malty with a bit of burnt orange and spice. OK, but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a small frothy with a small frothy white head that diminishes quickly to nothing. The aroma is a sweet fruit with bready malt. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet caramel with light malt and a nice spicy finish. Easy to drink, a great winter brew. FINALLY a scottish ale under my belt!!

Scopey (16225) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle at ChrisO Snow Tasting, thanks to FatPhil. It pours clear deep red-brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is caramel, wood, candy, leather, berry and some spice. The taste is caramel, wood, dark fruit, tangy berry, metal, brown bread and spice with a dry finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Straightforward and easy drinking.
