Bottle conditioned 500ml, a present from my father. Broached on 16th Feb 2018 and poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard at home. Dark mahogany body, beige head. Malty yet bitter and almost sour in nature, like home brew that's 'on the turn'. This can't be right. I am still going to rate and score this, but I promise to revisit again if I drink the beer again. rauchbier (3956) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2017

Bottled, 500ml from Wyevale Garden Centre, Bicester, Oxon. Brown with off white head. Quite a malty beer, fruity with a slight vegetable sweetness, almost parsnip / carrot in character. Becomes a little woody, twiggy later on. It’s ok. MrTipple (7282) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2015
