Idiosynkrasie (8198) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2017
500ml bottle [from a trade with Grumbo - thank you very much, Graham!]. Minimally milky, redd-ish, deep copper colour with small to average, frothy, moderately lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish, fruity hoppy and caramel malty aroma, notes of red berries, especially lingonberry. Taste is mellow malty and fruity hoppy, hints of caramel and toffee, red berries; slightly dry, leafy hoppy finish. Nice.

Rune (13720) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 25, 2017
One-third pint, keg at Three Wise Monkeys. Crystal clear copper coloured body. Dissipating beige head, Dotted spots on the glass. Vague malt-fruity nose. Mixed taste of grain, caramel and a backdrop of lemony hops. Short-lived malt-fruity bitter end. Clean in the mouth. Easy going. (Colchester 12.07.2017).

harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2016
Cask handpull at Fat Cat Norwich. Clear amber brown colour lasting beige head. A malty bitter. Earthy English hop finish. Good malt though. I Like the malty biscuit. Decent

theprof (1364) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2016
Cask. Definite scent of stewed tea and sour biscuit. Pours copper amber with lace top more smear than coating. Well balanced soft blended hop fruit and biscuit malt. Gentle carbonation and soft coating of the palate. A pretty good session bitter and they are less common than you think.
