jackl (8210) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Gravity @ The Bree Louise. The pour’s deep amber red with no head whatsoever. The nose is sweet red berry pie. Fresh pastry. Big, sweet malts. The taste is more rich sweet berry jam. fruit leather, red apple skin. Rich malt presence. Slightly woody. Pleasing, simple flavors. Not exactly complex, but appealing enough. Light, somewhat thin body. Flat texture. Overall, decent.

Cask. Amber colour with a small white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, some mild bread as well as some floral and grassy notes. Flavour is similar, but also has some ripe fruits, wood and some slight alcohol sweetness to it as well.

Leighton (21477) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
Cask at Tapping the Admiral - London. Pours perfectly clear amber-gold with a creamy, white head. Sugary hread on the nose, light berries and caramel. Medium sweet flavor with toasted sugars, grapes, biscuits, cereal, brown bread, slight brown sugar. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes with sugary toasted cereal, corn flakes, toasty bread, grains, touhs kf burnt caramel, little to no bitterness, mellow ripe berries. Extremely simplistic but not altogether bad.

Iznogud (3898) - CROATIA - MAY 15, 2014
Cask at City Arms, Cardiff. Pours amber with off-white head. Malty caramel aroma with some hops. Sweet flavor with light bitterness.

leebotton (406) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2013
Pours very slightly cloudy amber with a thick pale yellow / cream head with large bubbles. Rich, sweet aromas with a strong cereal taste. There is an interesting floral quality to the taste which works in it’s favour but a little underwhelming

BlackHaddock (7404) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2013
500ml Bottle conditioned: 8 days passed it’s BBD when poured into an Abbot Ale glass tankard on 23 May 2013. Lovely looking brew: bright amber with a huge off-white head, even though it was poured slowly and carefully to ensure the sediment stayed in the bottle. Aroma of an English Summers day in a floral garden (yes, I know it’s brewed in Wales). This is a well balanced beer, the malts giving it a slightly sweet front with the hops providing a mini citrus and bittering finish. Medium bodied and almost smooth on the palate, the 5.8% ABV hidden nicely within the flavours and texture of the brew, a fine beer and by far the best of the three I’ve had from this brewery.

imdownthepub (14744) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Seven Stars, Bristol. Amber with white head. Heavy, fruity type beer, peachy with a grainy malty side note. Some late tartness. Just reasonable.

greenmanalishi (551) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2012
Pours a cloudy amber. Yeast and pine aromas. Woody flavours and a dry hop finish.

TEJA (3101) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle at omhper, thanks. Thinn and spotted beige lace. The aroma has a bit of whiskey and fruit. Big body with some bitterness but not much hop taste.

Pigs Ear. Clear amber beer. Light dry palate. Toffee malt. Some balance provided by peachy orange fruit. Not too bitter but a bit dry.
