floydian1 (1454) - FNQ, Australia, - SEP 8, 2014
500ml bottle. Red-brown beer with a dense large rocky white head that persists and laces soapily. A fine English style IPA with a robust caramel base to balance out the dark fruity dry hop bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beese (2671) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Cask at the Watford Beer Festival 2013. Poured a clear copper with a rocky white head. Aroma of apple juice, candy sugar and more apple juice! Cinnamon flavours with some brown sugar and... apple juice... Finish was malty with cooked apples and grass. Weird and probably not altogether right...
