Grumbo (4747) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2017
Bottle from Beers of Europe, Kings Lynn. Pours amber with an average sized just off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, fruit and light floral notes. Medium plus sweetness, quite light bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, average to soft carbonation. Fruity, malty, moderately bitter and slightly soapy finish. Not especially keen on this one.

rauchbier (3961) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - APR 23, 2016
Bottle conditioned, from Waitrose, Willerby. Amber gold, thin but lasting white head and gentle condition. Solid citrusy hop notes in the nose with grapefruit and hop resin blending with a muted caramel and malt sweetness, full bodied in the mouth with an initial tang of citrus quickly becoming dry and hop bitter, there is some muted background sweet caramel and burnt toffee notes but hops maintain their dominance and extend into the finish giving it a long dry hoppy bitterness tinged with a slight chalky yeastiness

Bottle - clear light amber, high carbonation and only small white head. Sweetffruity aroma. Initial ting on tongue and in mouth. Taste fruity but overly fizzy.
