3.1
richc (239) - Bolton, Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Sweet malt aroma with a touch of chocolate and a hint of spicy hops. Fairly pale for the style and a touch cloudy but has a good off white head. Flavour is still good but doesn’t quite live up to the aroma

TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 27, 2012
Cask at the Malt And Hops. Dark amber with white head. Aroma is weak - mild citrus. Unpleasantly warmed ’left in a car’ strawberries. VERY thin. Thin malt, thin hops. Not unpleasant though.

tombyars (1683) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Sampled this ale in the Three Judges, Glasgow in October 2007. Cask, handpump dispense. Orange amber in colour with a thin white head. Slight marmalade fruit in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and decent lacing. Pale malts give a digestive biscuit base with dry redcurrant and tart grapefruit flavours. Strong hop resin noted in the dry astringent aftertaste, surprising to find in a Scottish 80/ export. Finish is hoppy with tart citrus pith full in the palate. Reminded me of Shepherd Neame ales with the hop content. An ok session bitter but not to my taste.

gunnfryd (14807) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 21, 2012
Bottle at DSG 2011. Pale amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is dry, malt, caramel. Flavour is roasted malt, dry, caramel, fruit. Medium body. Ordinary beer.

mr_h (5434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - JAN 15, 2012
Cask by handpump at Bon Accord (10 Jan 12) - very slightly hazy brown ale, hint of caramel, fairly smooth and easy to drink

Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2011
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Very hazy (almost muddy) amber, with no head. Malty, grainy with citric hops and a touch of yeast, a tad soapy and some spices in the background.

3.1
Scopey (14497) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2011
Bottle from Deeside Drink Emporium, Banchory. It pours cloudy dark amber, with a thick white head. The nose is brown bread, toasted malt, plastic, tires and wood. The taste is caramel, sweet malt, toast, nut, powdery, plastic, burnt tire and some toffee, with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Ok, but not great.

3.3
