Draught in The Sussex, Hove - 23/10/10. Fairly bland beer. Quite dark with some caramel in there.

Countbeer (6592) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2010
Draught @ Hobgoblin, London: Had this one a while ago. Dark orange to amber color with a small off white airy head, disappears quick. Smell malts, caramel, hops, spices, sugar and a hint of vanilla. Taste is bit dull: malts, caramel, grass, hints of fruit, hops and sweets. Slight bittersweet aftertaste.

One of our favourite ales and breweries, Goliath is smoother though less potent and king goblin is awesome

pumpmaster (1393) - Pembroke Pines, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2010
Purchased a pint for $6.25 at The Pub in the Pembroke Gardens mall in South Florida. Very good.

Dark brown color, small beige head. Aroma has toffee and some toasted sugars. Light, almost watery palate. Low carbonation. Light toffee sweetness. Light leafy hoppy finish, otherwise quite low bitterness. Bland, with Indian food ok?

Threepwood (107) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2010
On tap at the Moon & Six in Perth AU. Dark brown with a light long lasting head. Lovely malty flavours, slightly bitter finish. This was a really tasty pint. Well worth the visit.
