Antzrhere (144) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2017 Cask, Layton Institute Blackpool. Pours amber with white head. Taste is biscuit malt and sweet, maybe abit too sweet. Some fruity yeast esters. Slightly cloying malt/caramel notes. Smooth and reasonably drinkable. Medium bitterness. Had a cold so hops didnt come through much, maybe light citrus. Decent body. Not bad, better than most bitter swill put out but nothing special

[email protected] and Payne, Streatham, London - Amber pour with white head. Toasted sweet malty forward, lots of caramel sweetness, some twiggy herbal hoppy edge, basic stuff overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vladivostok (466) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2016
Golden in colour with a distinct herbal hop aroma. Most of the hops seem to have been used for aroma though as the copper hopping is obviously quite light, but a slight hint of citrus seeps through. Finish understandably short but quite a refreshing beer nonetheless.

BeerNinjaUK (413) - Wiltshire, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Pint at Royal Oak, Alton. Very pale and slightly cloudy in colour with frothy head. Aroma fruity, particularly citrus. Taste crisp with citrussy new world hops and a slight saltiness. Refreshing but a bit too watery - would have a really good profile if it were somewhat stronger and more robust with the hoppiness.

Erzengel (8242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2016
*Old rating, cask in the UK. Smooth mild brown beginning. Easy to drink and still full bodied. Nice brown malt, nice Ale-characteristics. Round but not too deep brew!

Cask at ONeills, Reading. Light amber with a thick white head. Pleasantly lemony up front, but then slightly slimy caramel and some sulphur kick in. Mild bitterness at the end. Dull but drinkable.

Another very easy drinking beer from Sharps. A pale golden ale with a citrusy aroma and well balanced taste with a bitter finish.
