AshtonMcCobb (7027) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2017
On cask at the White Horse, Saintfield. Appearance - amber with a nice fluffy head. Nose - toffee and dry biscuits. Taste - toffee more generous this time. A touch of dark chocolate. Figs, maybe. Dry biscuit finish again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy texture. There’s a dry crunchy finish. Overall - decent example of the style.

mR_fr0g (13977) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle at home in northern Ireland. Dull light amber / orange coloured pour with a greyish thin head. Aroma is nice hedgerow/ grassy hop with grainy cereal malts, flavour is composed of grainstore wheat, tannin, hedgerow hop, chalky water. Little lingering floral lavender. Palate is light, chalky, spritzy carbonation. Decent bitter.

Erzengel (9745) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 24, 2014
500ml bottle, BB Aug 14
Dark golden in the glass, fluffy white head. The beer starts smooth and dry. For the Bitter, I miss the typical Ale-yeast characteristics a bit. The mainpart is malty, dry-malty, hints of roast. On the tongue remains a nice bitter-dry and malty aftertaste, which I like very much.
Nice brew that gets better till the end. --> 10/11/12/11

Creedence (315) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
500ml bottle with friends. Pours a hazy amber, with a thin patchy head. Aroma of wood and toffee. Taste is medium sweetness and medium bitterness. Slightly woody. Bitter dry lasting aftertaste, a little metallic, and smooth. Fairly dull, but it’s grand nonetheless.
