Vighals (4465) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2016
Lys brun klar med lavt hvitt skum. Lukter maltekstrakt og papir. Vannete. Svært lett kort bitterhet.

BlackHaddock (7696) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
Clear 500ml bottle (Bottle Conditioned) with a thin layer of sediment visable at the base of the beer. Best before 10 Mar 09, drank 24 Jan 09. Poured into a ’Old Speckled Hen’ vase pint glass. Mahogany brown in colour with very little head, it was an off-white almost tan coloured wisp. Aroma of malted barley, the label mentions both Cascade and Galena Hops, but I couldn’t tell you what they smell like anyway! No overly impressed and this is the first of three beers from this brewery I am intending to review today (I often drink the beers I review while on line). Malty, but lacking anything else, it isn’t in great condition either, a bit flat and bland to be honest.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2011
Cask Stillage at the Roundhouse, Derby 26/02/2011 Fruity aroma. Amber coloured floral and sweet on the palate with a slightly spicy flavour. Dry malty finish.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2010
Cask conditioned handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough. A hazy chestnut coloured beer with an off-white head and thick lacing. The aroma has a hint of fruit skins and some odd smoky notes. Better in the mouth with fruity malts. Although there appear to be off notes in the nose there aren’t any in the mouth and it’s pretty pleasant.

Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2009
(Cask at Market Porter, Southwark, London, 18 Apr 2009) Mahogany colour with brief, beige head. Malty, nutty nose with notes of dried fruit and prunes. Malty, nutty taste with dark fruit, chocolate and hints of coffee. Mild bitterness in the finish. Medium body. Hardly exciting, but a decent nutty bitter.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2009
Cask, gravity, at 2nd Wellington BF, Wellington Arms, Bedford. Brown. Earthy malt aroma, developing hints of buttery caramel. Taste is smooth and malty with a mid bitter finish. When addressing someone in Latin, even if you’re his best mate and he’s about to stab you, you should use the vocative, not the nominative case. Therefore this beer should be called ’Et tu Brute’. I thought you’d like to know that.

RichardGretton (4788) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2009
Bottle. Brownish beer with a very strong head. The aroma is weakly roasted, and the flavour is gently bitter and roasted with a slight chocolate finish. Overall a reasonable beer.

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2009
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Clear deep orangey golden with a creamy off-white head. Sweetish fruity and nutty nose. Medium body with sweetish burned caramel and nuts with a whiff of sulphur. Lightly bitter finish. 190209

faroeviking (11220) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 26, 2009
Botella. Unclear red brown colour. Dark fruity and toasty malty aroma. Pleasant bitter toasty malty flavour with some spice and caramel. Good bitter toasty finish.

Ungstrup (38489) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 19, 2009
Bottled. A hazy red with a bit af brown shine under a tan head. The aroma is sweet with strong spicy notes of hops, somewhat elderflowery. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of elderflowers and toffee, leading to a bitter finish.
