Vladivostok (485) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2014 Massively malty ale and dark enough to stray into old ale territory. Good bead and bags of flavour including notes of chocolate, toffee and licorice. You only begin to notice the hops in the aftertaste, which is surprisingly long-lasting. One of the best ’new’ ales I have tried in some while.

Cask conditioned handpump Bell & Bear Emberton 21/10/12. A ruby coloured beer with an off-white head. Rich and fruity throughout. Cakey malts and toasty elements. Slightly warming and very nice.

A lively dark amber to ruby ale with a slightly off white head. It has a pleasant toffee, chocolate, fruit and vanilla aromas which follow into subtle flavours of roasted malts and has a bitter hoppy finish. A classic dark style bitter with a refreshing bite.

leaparsons (10554) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2012
Cask, Leicester Fest 12. Hazy brown with an off white head. Aromas are bready rye with raisins and cookie dough. Earthy, mellow berries with spices. Flavours are cookie dough with herbal notes. Sweet with juicy fruit and a dry lightly metallic finish. Nice.

[Cask from brewer’s own stand at the Thame Food Festival] Crystal clear amber-red with a slight white head. Lovely rich, full mouthfeel. Despite the cascade hops, this seems to have full-on traditional English bitter flavours - fruity flavours of berries, orange and marmalade, with a lasting earthy, bitter finish and a slight dryness. Tastes stronger than it is. Very decent beer from what seems to be becoming a very reliable brewery.

harrisoni (18579) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
On cask at the Firkin Ale House Folkestone. Clear russet colour thin beige head. Good malt but the hops on the end are excellent. Really biting. Bit of milk chocolate. Lovely
