3.4
Grumbo (2955) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, Bury St Edmunds. Pours a cloudy chestnut brown with a very small off white head. Aroma of toffee, molasses, chocolate and dark fruit. Medium sweetness, light bitterness, touch of sour. Medium to full body, texture oily, low carbonation. Finish is dry, quite sweet and fruity. It’s pretty decent.

3.2
Idiosynkrasie (7539) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2016
330ml bottle. Cloudy, reddish, dark amber colour with small, creamy, half-way lasting, well lacing, beige head. Sweet-ish, caramel malty aroma, toffee notes, hints of mandarine and orange. Taste is dry, papery, oaky, minimally tart and bitter, hints of marmalade, orange zest, rather unseizable caramel malty background with cautious touch of toffee and nuts. Relatively light, well hidden alcohol. A tad loveless for an Anniversary Ale - no regret about limited availability.

3.4

Bottle from Snape Maltings. Sweetish dry with a boozy bite. Little hop, stewed boozy vine fruits. A little rough around the edges but very drinkable.
