tombyars (1656) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2011
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 1991. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear reddish amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight treacle toffee and roast barley in the short but pleasant aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts deliver a good maltloaf body with sultana fruit, dates and sweet soft toffee notes. Dry hop prickle in the brief aftertaste but this soon fades to reveal a warming alcoholic malty finish with a dry liquorice edge. An excellent English Strong Ale and very hard to find north of the border.

5.3% and not a bad beer but they have annoyed me immensely, if the monkey had been hanging I would have really enjoyed it but at the time I was too confused by the drivel on the label. The label on the back claims that the beer was named for an old legend (to do with my home town), en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monkey_hanger but it is obviously not, it is named after a type of adjustable spanner and nothing to do with the legend. I can not see why they even bothered printing it.

The_Osprey (7405) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Cask HP at The Crosse Keys Bishopsgate as Daleside Monkey Wrench, 5.3%. I misread the label and ordered a honkey wench. Time to book an optician appointment. Dark brown, opaque with a red hue, foamy tan head. Aroma is airy, some flat cola, dates, touch papery. Body is smooth, almost oily, with lowish carbonation. Taste is a touch thin, cardboard, raisin, some more watery cola, papery, carpet. Wishy washy finish. The flavour builds over time and its an ok beer overall. Grew on me. Wouldnt come back to it though.

Dark amber ale. Not much aroma. Fairly rich taste typical of strong ales - raisins, hints of brandy. Quite sweet. Very easy drinking.

Bananas and white daisies (have you ever eaten those?) in a weak body of chocolate malt and hazelnuts…Easy to forget though…
