visionthing (5564) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 29, 2017
35,5cl bottle from Kaubamaja, Tallinn. Didn't really expect a gusher, so it started out a bit messy. Calmed down and it pours clear copper coloured with a big, fast dissipating off-white head. Aroma is rather malty with notes of caramel, ripe fruits and hints of herbs and pine. Medium sweet with mild, smooth flavours and a fine bitterness. Quite nice, but a bit too much on the sweet side for my taste.

Grumbo (4126) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - NOV 21, 2017
Bottle at the Rising Sun, Smithfields, London. Pours slightly hazy dark amber with a good sized off-white head. Intense fruity, hoppy, malt aroma, with blackberry, bread, citrus, yeast and toffee. Medium plus sweetness, moderate bitterness. Medium body, slight oily texture, average carbonation. Sweet caramel fruity finish. Surprisingly good.

Well, that was a surprise. Chilled and it gushed.

Clearish copper colour, 2 fingers of foam with lacing.

Serious English malt nose going on. Earthy, kinda sweet and nutty. Citrus hops bring a light fruitiness.

The taste is sweet(caramel), nutty, earthy, balanced by a mild citrus hop kick.

Simple effective mouthfeel..not a full body but not that far off.

Very very drinkable.

Scopey (15885) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle at Glasshouse Stores, Soho. It pours clear deep amber - copper with a substantial white head. The aroma is rich, earthy, wood, ripening orange, marmalade, earth, wood and leather. The taste is dry, bitter, wood, leather, toasted nut, tangy orange marmalade, slightly metallic, bit of spice and gingerbread with a drying finish. Medium body and lively, effervescent carbonation. This actually had plenty going on. Found it rather enjoyable really.

From old tasting notes. Clear amber orange color with a creamy beige head. Majestic toasted malt aroma. Toasted malt flavor with a splendid balance hops and malt. Very light carbonation let’s all the flavor come through. Very tasty.
