lagomswedish (213) - Ume, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2008
Draft at The Ship in Whitstable High Street. This beer really does make you sit up and take notice, Pours a pale straw colour with a spicy hoppy aroma backed with ginger. My lips actually felt like they were burning drinking this beer - the owner of the pub makes his own EXTREMELY hot pickled eggs and I thought a drop of juice from the jar must have got into my pint! Never experienced a chilli hit like it, but overall a very rich, flavoursome pint that demands to be remembered.

bobinlondon (1295) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2008
Handpulled cask at JDW St. Albans. Hazy gold with a healthy white head. A fairly ordinary North West bitter to start with but the ginger and chilli soon start tickling the tastebuds and this develops into quite an unusual experience. Overall, dry and moreish. I liked it more than I thought I would.

[Cask at Back of Beyond, Reading, April 2008] Odd - a traditional best bitter flavour (despite the pale colour) on the foretaste, a huge hit of ginger and chilli on the aftertaste - in the manner of having a teaspoon of the dried spice just after finishing your beer. Very unusual, and rather enjoyable provided you dont mind losing your sense of taste for some time after! Not sure Id want an entire pint for fear of indigestion or a digestive cataclysm. Definitely one to split opinions.

Cask, as Easton Spice (4.5%), end of [email protected]s. Mildly hazy yellowish golden colour with mediumsized fluffy head. Aroma is some spices, herbs as well as caramel malts and some fruityness. Flavour is really spicy, almost tabascoish burning. at first red tabasco, when warming almost habanero hot. The spices pretty much cover everything except a certain bitterness. I like my spices in food, not necessarily in a beer...

FatPhil (15575) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 26, 2008
Cask (Kittys, Helsinki) as "Easton Spice"
Slightly hazy straw, healthy frothy head. Citrussy, gingery, and hoppy aroma, and very decent sweet malt, and raw mashiness too. Big hoppy body, bitter and tangy. 2nd mouthful is clearly peppery and hot, and further sips build on that. Leaves a hot finish in the mouth. Interesting, but doesnt hook me completely. Solid bitter underneath though.
