Leighton (20794) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle shared in London - thanks to Fergus. Pours clear gold-brown with a frothy, tan head. The aroma holds old leather, ripe berries, faint caramel. Light sweet flavour with musty-woody dryness, more beat-up leather, tangy berries, a little earth. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Quite dry on the finish, with more musty character, wood, more leather and tangy berries. So so.

The_Osprey (7812) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2017
330ml bottle share at Canary Wharf, with many thanks to Fergus. As ’Ninkasi Noire’, 6.6%. Dark brown with an orange-red hue, dense foamy brown head, full lacing. Aroma has some apple and varnish, some candy floss. Body is light, frothy, soft carbonation. Taste has some tangy raspberry, earthy, light biscuity malt, red apple, soft finish. Sort of weird and tangy. I don’t mind it. Will rate at face value as though it was meant to be like this.

Scopey (14215) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2017
Bottle thanks to Fergus at level 42. It pours clear deep brown with a small beige head. The aroma is soft, sweet, brown sugar, umami, dried fruits, dark fruits, roasted malt and toast. The taste is smooth, bitter - sweet, toasted, tangy fruits, berry, must, earthy, damp wood, leather and candy with a short, dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Not a huge amount of depth.
