sudomorph (1141) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a clear brass with a one finger, off white head. Aroma is a touch skunky with mild caramel, traditional hops, and toffee. Taste is balanced with a touch of bittering hops, caramel, toffee, and a slightly bitter ending. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a dry finish. Overall better than I expected. Slight skunk with notes of caramel, toffee, and a dry finish.

The_Osprey (7731) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2015
500ml bottle, BB Dec 2015, from LIDL and consumed at a work do at a BYOB. Dark reddy brown, slight haze, big off-white head. Body is medium, low-ish carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is malt-forward, slight ash, slightly sweet, soft bitterness. Predictably average. My colleagues hated it, but I thought it was at least passable.
