Fin (10175) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2016
Bottle courtesy of Bob cheers Bob. Consumed at home unusually having a beer or a Monday night but hey it is Lozs birthday, Monday 14th November 2016 Pours mid amber with a hint of a reddiness, a few stray bubbles but no discernible head to speak of. Tangy, fruity and a little sour, not my thing, to be fair its not awful, but lifes too short to drink stuff like this, I dont think that I can finish this is likely to be a drainpour.

The_Osprey (7631) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle shared at home as Castle Hung Drawn and Slaughtered, 2012 vintage, 10%. Dark amber orange, clear, still, small foamy off-white head. Aroma is spirits, cabbage, gummy bears and copper pipe. A real mix. Body is smooth, low carbonation. Taste is a bit sweeter and fruitier with tangy marmalade, gummy bears and booze. Overall, its fine. Pretty much as expected!

Bottle shared at Daniels place. 20/02/2016. Many thanks to Daniel for this one. Bright orange amber coloured pour with a small halo of white head. Aroma is tangy orange, slightly musty, brown sugar, hot alcohol. Flavour is composed of tangy orange rind, slightly musty, hint of acid. Little brown sugar. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation, slight tangy. Actually not bad.

Scopey (13801) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle at Richmondo, big thanks to Dirty Danny. It pours clear rich deep Amber with no head whatsoever. The nose is earthy, musty, dirty, leather, butterscotch, toffee, stewed orange, vegetables, gummy bears and over - ripe fruit. The taste is tangy orange, tangerine, candy, sticky, gooseberry, earth, gummy bears, with a short finish. Medium- full body and slick mouth - feel. I doubt it would do you harm in the short term, but in the long term maybe.

Leighton (20170) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle shared in Richmond - many thanks to Daniel. Vintage 2012. Pours clear, rich gold with a slight, creamy white head. Interesting aroma, some rich bread, ripe citrus, earth, orange, faint metal, grains. Medium sweet flavor, lightly musty, with tangy berries, some farts, very slight acetic notes, sugary bread. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly warming in the finish, with further tart fruits, hints of vinegar, bread, earth, leather. Quite novel stuff, but just a little rough.

gegwilson (3593) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2014
Bottle from Cornwall holiday. Pours deep amber with a cream head. This is another pretty bad beer from Castle. There are some decent flavours hiding in there including pear drop and sherry notes. But theres some unpleasant ones too. Sourness and tin. A mess, but improves as it goes down.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle from some little tourist shop in the beautiful Polperro, Cornwall. Murky medium brown with a thin to medium pale tan head. Aroma is boozy, sweet malts, nail varnish, aniseed, Belgian yeast type notes. Flavour is yeasty, sugary caramel, toffee, sweet boozy finish. Strength hidden quite well. Good work!

Bottle drank on hols in St Ives. Clear amber beer with a small off white head. Smooth dry palate with very modest carbonation. Sweetish caramel. Brandy like alcohol provides an evaporating dryness. Touch of dried fruits. Dry and slightly gum numbing finish. It passes muster but is clunky.

Theydon_Bois (18478) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2012

Boozy dross !
