BlackHaddock (8209) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2018
Six half-pints of different Mad Squirrel beers in their High Wycombe outlet, shared with the wife on 2nd April 2018. Theydon_Bois (Colin) brought us here before the big match (Wycombe v Grimsby Town). On-tap, Keg. Refreshing Pilsner with a light citrus leaning and a mini sweetness below the hop bitterness. Usual crystal clear, golden body and fast receding white head you expect to see in a Pilsner.

High Wycombe Walkabout. Red Squirrel Tap Room. Keg. Almost clear gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Thin malts do have some lager character. Mild floralness. Dry seltzer. Floralness gets bitterish on the thin semi dry finish. Thin and dry.

The_Osprey (10145) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
November 2016 - Keg at The Red Squirrel Emporium, High Wycombe, as ’Red Squirrel The Mad Squirrel’s Flying Squirrel’. Thanks team! Golden yellow, clear and still, foamy off-white head. Aroma is dusty, lager malt, cereals, cornflakes in particular. Body is light with tingly carbonation, quite smooth. Taste is light grains, cereals, dusty hops, musty and generic lager vibes. Overall, an above average lager. (3.0)

imdownthepub (15890) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2016
On draught at The Red Squirrel Brewery Shop Emporium, High Wycombe, Bucks. Gold with white head. There is a light, grainy maltiness to this, hints of sweetness with a honeyed note. Lemon / lime later on. Quite a reasonable Blonde Ale, lager type beer. It’s fine.
