HogTownHarry (7447) - Toronto (Harbourfront), CANADA - FEB 5, 2018
September 13, 2017 - at Southampton Arms - handpull cask. Hazy deep reddish-amber with a smallish frothy beige head (4-). A little sweet and floral malt up front quickly dominated by varying (citrus, zest, pine) pungent fresh hop bitterness - oh yes, this is how you do a red ale! Taste doesn't disappoint - just a lot more floral, and heavy malt body, quite peachy/blood orange. Average body, airy and quick-finishing; a little sticky/fruity in the aftertaste, yes pungently floral and zesty - man this was a pleasant pint!

Light haze on this deep amber beer, good cream colour head. Airy palate, semi dry, decent fine minerally carbonation. Fluffy malts, mildly sweet, thin and tangy caramel. Mild pine into ripe orange peel and marmalade. Trace of hop skunk. Whisper of red berries. Light crisp finish. Nice enough but lacks something to make it shine.

BeardedAvenger (1379) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2017
Cask at Cock Tavern, Hackney. Caramel and grain aroma. Ruby tinged amber. Very thin off-white head. Light caramel.sweetneds mixed with a light bitterness. A vinous finish. The latter peaks into the finish. Medium bodied. Slick, almost sticky. Long finish. Decent. Enjoyable.

jooilakon (380) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle 330 ml from Howling Hops tank room in Hackney Wick. Fruity aromas with notes of caramel. Pours hazy brown body with small eggwhite head. Taste is smooth bitter with fruity notes and caramel. Very pleasant taste that reminds me a lot of Fuller’s ESB. Great choice for a cold autumn day.

Finn (8690) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2017
Flaske 330ml delt med Rune på Sourced Market, London 26 Apr 17. Mørkebrun. Høyt kremaktig skum. Tett lacing. Lett fruktaroma. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken fersken. Bra - men før søt. Uklar siste kvelling.

ajschiller (41) - London, - MAY 21, 2017
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2018 330ml bottle eebria.com discovery box. A refreshing beer with fruity notes, sweet flavour with a slight bitter after taste.

Rune (14173) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2017
330ml bottle shared with Finn at Soured Market, St Pancras. Beige head, lacing rings, clear copper coloured body. Delicate fruity caramel malts on the nose. Flavoured with toffee, caramel and red orange, a bit jam-like. Gentle dry bittersweet end. Medium bodied. Nice (London 26.04.2017).

Cask Third of a Pint at Pig’s Ear Beer Festival, London, Dec 2015 - Ruby Amber in colour. Hoppy; well hopped. Fruity; orange and grapefruit citrus. Malty; toasty malts. Bittersweet hoppy fruity beer. Tasty. Decent. (2015-12-01)

LED40 (125) - Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2017
Pours as the name suggests a ruby red colour with a thick off white head. The smell of the hops is instantley apparant. The taste is hop forward with a mild fruity citrus background. The body, for the style, is thick and rich, almost velvety with a high carbonation. Overall, this is excellent, it tastes great and looks lush when poured into a glass.

BeerViking (5240) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2016
Cask at the Cock. Chocolate, red fruit and resin on the nose, lightly spicy with lots of warming fruit and alcohol, perhaps a tad over-sweet in the finish.
