BreWedge (529) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAR 21, 2014
On tap @ Beer Bistro Toronto. Pours a clear light brown with a small off-white head and little to no carbonation. Aromas are black licorice and a little plastic funk. Tastes are toffee/caramel, roastiness, mild hops and somewhat metallic on the Black end. Very light bodied, light carbonation, and a short finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 4, 2014
Cask at Artillery Arms Moorgate. Post-exam commiseration/celebration with classmates, so short review. Amber gold, still, clear. Aroma - toned down malts. Body is medium, smooth, carbonation low. Taste is almost entirely orange squash and apple. If I were blindfolded I’d say that it is some sort of fruit cordial. Bitterness is mild. There’s something a bit sickly about it but it’s OK.
