Fin (10157) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle courtesy of and shared by Bob (cheers Bob), consumed in a field at Fairports Annual Reunion Festival, Cropredy Friday 12th August 2016 Another beer that was difficult to determine the colour of owing to the green drink vessel that I am using, however it looks brown in colour. This is surprisingly thin in the mouth with just a light fruitiness, Craig thinks that this has a slight infection, he may well be right but if so I am not getting much. Itís ok but there is very little to report on, it doesnít taste is 7% A6 A3 T6 P3 Ov10 2.8

ManVsBeer (9421) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle from Good Life, Polperro. Dark ruby with a very thin head. It has an acute berry-fruit sweetness which does go a long way in masking its strength.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2014
Bottle, Polperro, Cornwall. Dirty muddy brown with a thin quickly fading to nowt pale tan head. Aroma is changing rooms, fruitcake, yeast. Flavour is herbal and floral, elderflower. Palate is thin. Lacks finesse and body.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2013
Bottled 24/12/13. A dark dark brown coloured beer with a whitish head. A slightly thin plummy aroma. Interesting in the mouth. Fruit and chocolate. Plummy again. Lacking body for a 7% beer but drinkable enough.

Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, toffee, light buttery. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration, toffee, dark malt. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20121208]

martinrumsam (564) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2012
bottle deep brown very thin beige head aromas of caramel and some bacon taste is weird - reminds me of a poor Gueze sour with a nasty aftertaste . Carbonation is way too high . do yourself a favour and avoid

leaparsons (10291) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 14, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown and copper with a thin head. Aromas are toffee malts with floral, herbal and spicy notes. Some smokiness with berry fruit and yeast. Flavours are yeast and lemon with not a great deal else. I cannot recommend any bottled beers from this brewery.
