   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
Scopey (15500) - Croydon, Greater London, - NOV 13, 2012
Cask at Craft Beer Co Brighton. It pours deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is wood, leather tangerine, dried pineapple and brown bread. The taste is wood, leather, sharp citrus, tangerine, grape, cox apple, caramel, light spice and resin with a long dry finish. Med body and soft carbonation. Flavoursome and well balanced. Nice hopped-up contempory take on an ESB.

Tap at One Pint Pub, Helsinki. (Special Finnish version with abv 6.0%!). Colour is clear orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours: Toffee, some fruits, dry fruits and malts. Nice maltiness.

imdownthepub (15160) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2017
Cask conditioned at The York Tap, York. Burnished gold with white head. There is a sweet, malty character to this, buttery with a light caramel note. Quite a basic beer for this brewery. Some late bitterness. It's okay.

Many pubs and bars already serve at least one non-alcoholic beer. But there is amazing variety of styles and flavours available. These are some of our favourites – some are produced right here in London! And don’t forget the lower alcohol beers either

Lovely! Rating over. Oh - you want some words? Lovely estery aroma, sweet malts, bready. Palate fullish, carbonation fitting. Orange, head settles to a ring. Nice balanced fruity malty taste. Lovely wooly bitterness. Lovely - I told you so!

Hermod (8253) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 6, 2017
Draught @ leijuva lahna. Poured amber color with a thin white head. Berryish aroma, some veggie notes. Flavor has biscuits, crackers, some berries. Not in best shape.

oh6gdx (26487) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 1, 2017
[email protected] Pub, Vaasa. Deep amber colour with a small off-white head. Aroma is nicely fruity, some berries, mild sweet malts as well as some slight resin to it. Flavour is fruity, mild red berries, some sweet malts, resin and a nice mellow bitterness to it. Quite bodied even though a bit on the sweeter side of an ESB. Quaffable.

Dedollewaitor (16359) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2017
Draught @ Christian Firtal, Odense. Thornbridge tap takeover. Pours Copper reddish with a white head. Immaculate cleanness. Grassy hops, bread and slight caramel. Bitter dry finish. Very fresh!

TBone (18106) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2017
Tap at Ravintola Kirjakauppa, Pori. Clear copper color, small steady off-white head. Light malty, a bit rubbery nose. Light-bodied. Very easy. Light maltyness, light riped tropical fruits, sweetish finish. Clean but boring.

mjs (7610) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2017
(Keg at Punavuoren Ahven, 20170311) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had caramel, earth and toffee. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, grass, caramel and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, hoppy and bitter. A decent bitter with some weird sidenotes.
