KimJohansen (10451) - Frederiksberg C, Dnemark, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2008

rickgordon (3870) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 18, 2008
MIni keg. Hazy amber colour with low head. Toasty aroma with sewer notes. Powdery mouthfeel with chocolate and bit sour. Very weird beer and unbalanced because of the dominance of the sourness and the sewer notes.

JorisPPattyn (9715) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2008
Draught / minikeg B.C.H. on top of pale amber beer. UK hops to the fore, distinctive, citrus, meaty esters. Biscuity taste, different from oxidative biscuite, dry oatmeal cakes, or Scottish wholemeal cookies. Light bodied, aromatically fading out. Very good if light bitter.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - DEC 31, 2007
Bottle, Christmas present, Thanks Mum! Clear copper with a huge off-white head. Nose is hoppy with some orange peel but some muck and potato with some cool warm malty chocolate. Mouth is metallic and citrus hop, with some meaty maltiness, some fruit. Some malt finish, with some lively fruit that subsidises and gives way to some gravy tones, meaning this is full bodied in palate, but a bit gulpable. Interesting one, I have to admit.

imdownthepub (13834) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Three Guineas, Reading, Berks. Clouded amber with white head. Fullish, malty bitter with a light hoppy finish, quite quenching and bitter with a good dryness. Some tangy lemon. Not bad.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 1, 2007
Hazy white head atop the hazy dark golden hue. Fresh cerealic and almost wheaty nose. Very drinkable in mouth, its huge breadiness just asks to be consumed and quickly before its fresh aspects diminish. Malty all throughout and never really taking a bitter path, yet unveiling juicy lemon aromas. Pleasant.

JonMoore (2067) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2006
Bottle. Amber colour with a cream head. Sweet malts and earthy hops in the aroma. Flavours are toasted malts, berry fruits and some nuttiness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, quite hoppy, spicey and dry. Enjoyable.
