ALLOVATE (2992) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 16, 2011
Just on cool into a pint. Yellow gold with a misty haze and not much life. Manages a decent dollop of white atop that holds on with good lace. Wads of honey, butter, fresh baked bread, oatcakes and yeast on the nose with a hint of lemon peel. Similar in the mouth. Baked grainy biscuits and oat-like goodness. Honey stretches the entire length of the palate. Prickly light carbonation and seemingly light in body but heavy in the stomach. Oily in feel with buttery, yeasty notes plaguing it. Zesty, dry piney swallow, the honey and yeast drop short and shy. A little disappointing, but what was I expecting of an IBS beer! (50cL, BBE 12/12, Darts Farm, Topsham, Exeter, Devon)

AshtonMcCobb (6476) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 30, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours golden with gentle bubbles and small but persistent head, The nose has lemon and some grassiness (maybe lemon grass). The taste has natural yoghurt - strange, its like a Belgian Blonde but without the depth of flavour. The palate is light in body, very drying in texture and clean, I suppose. Overall, this is a bit weird. Not unpleasant but not really pleasant either. .

BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2010
[500ml bottle, Vino Wines (Comiston), Edinburgh] Pours a lightish brown with a thin head. Slightly smoky aroma coming from the glass, some caramel notes. Flavour quite sweet from the malt with a mildly rising bitterness. Very insipid, the issue is the soapy, medicinal taste and quality on the palate. Not that great at all [25112010]

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
Bottle. Honey amber with a well-behaved white billow of foam. Sprinkle of vinegar, mouldering apple, sultana aroma. Still and chewy with soft resiny pine, Scottish-like wholemeal and brine; hint of dry roasted nuts. Lean, mineral-accented, savoury, very drinkable. For all the gimmickry, quite a decent beer.

yngwie (16990) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 31, 2009
Bottle. A hazy, dark orange-golden beer with a small, beige head. Fruity nose with some piney hops and toffee-ish and bready maltyness. The flavor is on the sweet side, toffee-ish and bready, with some bitterness lingering. Medium body and a nice carbonation level. Bready finish with a little bitterness trying to balance it. A quite decent beer, lacking on the bitterness. (081206)
