Heidbummer (889) - SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2017
Can. Big floral and biscuit aroma. Pours hazy amber, generous vanilla ice cream head. Nice soft mouthfeel. Biscuits, ice cream and rubber on the taste. It’s a little weird but interesting - more a slightly funky dank pale than IPA for me but I enjoyed it.

Restrained aroma in a golden pour. Hop forward balance with fruity body and sustained bitter finish. A tasty example of the style.

Fin (10917) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2017
Can from Kwoff, Bury, Gtr Manchester,, consumed at home, sat out in the garden, Thursday 6th April 2017 Pours hazy amber with a huge fluffy white head. A pretty robust bitterness, but there is a soft edge. A little bit of perfume, pine resinyness and floralness amongst the pithiness, it’s juicy and fruity and quite hard on the bitterness but it is very good. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov14 3.5

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2016
Can at home in London - sourced from Royal Mile Whiskies, Bloomsbury. Pours mostly clear orange-gold with a billowing, frothy off-white head. The nose holds grainy pale malts, ripe and lightly dried citrus fruits, some orange rind. Light to medium sweet flavour with lots of crackery pale malts, some pine needles, more rindy citrus, jammy orange, nips of lightly toasted caramel. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes with more crackers, dry pine, rindy bitterness. Well, I fear this one may have been sitting a bit too long. Not much vibrancy to it. Overall, just so so.
