bartlebier (4161) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2017
500ml bbJul2017, Tunbridge Wells paired with first BBQ season. - Beautiful luminous copper pour with finebubbling textures. Earthy yeast/hop character working in unison with bready toast, dried tealeaf, caramel and some dry cocoa. Gentle, with plenty of traditional character and fine ingredients. eastkenttom (154) - herne bay, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
Rather boring. Drank just after a bottle of their Red Top and despite that hardly being thrilling this seemed tame in comparison, despite the higher ABV. Almost tasteless. Very odd. 4/10. MartinT (10102) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2016
My Bottom Line: BeerViking (5084) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
This slender Bitter develops earthy, floral and citrusy connotations over lightly toasted malts.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A frothy head of foam dissipates into the shiny amber haze.
-The flavour profile is balanced.
-Mouthfeel is on the dry side for the style, perhaps lacking a little roundness or softness at that level.
-The ending bitterness accentuates the earthy character.
Cask at the Magpie, attractive deep red-brown with a clinging head, light aromas of carob and currant leaves. A little red fruit and some faintly honeyed malt, plus a herbal bitterness, doesn’t make me want another though. JonnyDarcy (7) - ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2014 does not count
Cask @ The Crooked Billet (E5) Deep amber with an ivory head. toasty, light spice, caramel and dried fruit on the nose. More toast, caramel, sultanas modest spice, and a dry finish. Medium to full body. I liked it, a nice autumnal/winter crossover beer
Idiosynkrasie (8059) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 8, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear, very reddish copper colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty aroma, fruity hints of red berries. Taste is caramel malty with a nuttily touch, grassy and bitter hoppy overtones, dry finish with a even stronger nuttily touch. Quack-Duck (9534) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
bottle from Oddbins Tunbridge Wells. Copper colour, mid-szed off-white head. Malty with hints of caramel and buts, fruity touch plus some nice aromatic hops in the finish. Scopey (15879) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2013
Cask at the White Lion, Tenterden. It pours clear deep amber with a medium white head. The nose is earth, toast, light spice, caramel and dried fruit. The taste is wood, toast, caramel, spice, dried fruits, raisin and decent bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Well rounded and rather quaffable. Nice. johndoughty (5566) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle. Bronze with a pleasant hoppiness that is followed by bitterness. Plenty of body followed by a bitter finish. Rather nice. joe19612 (3102) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle Conditioned. Pours a dark brown colour with a big tan head, no real aroma as such, the taste is very fruity with a dry bitter finish.
