Pope’s Yard Club Hammer
Gravicask (StABF2016)
Sweet roasty aroma. Anna gets liquorice too. Ditto taste, a classic sweet porter. Very dark, soft and sweet. Is a simple roast Good sweet finish, a touch dusty, and lasts a while, herbal hops.

High Wycombe House Warming. Thanks to Fergus. Almost clear dark amber beer, good pale tan head. Palate is smooth and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Mild malts. Good tangy fruits. Plum especially noticeable. Smooth and semi dry finish. Decent.

Pope’s Yard Hibiscus Sour
Bottlebest before January 5th 2017...phew made it by one day! Pours a clear turbine red with a minimal head. The smell is jam, booze, cordial. The taste is tangy, tart sour red fruit which isn’t 100% pleasant. Light in body with minimal carbonation. Overall this isn’t a very good beer. I did have it one the day before the best by date but I think there is something more to the lack of appeal. This is a beer that I will not finish as it’s a bit too strange though in general I applaud what the brewer is doing in Watford.

Pope’s Yard Supralunar
5th November 2016
High Wycombe House Warming. Thanks to Wingman. 3 days to BBE. Mild gusher. Very hazy gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry, decent carbonation. Pretty tangy fruits over light pale malts. Tangy getting toward sour. Light semi dry finish. A bit here and there.

Pope’s Yard Supralunar
November 2016 - Bottle share at Theydon’s High Wycombe Tasting. Thanks Dave! As ’Pope’s Yard Supralunar’. Hazy yellow, bubbly white head. Aroma is peachy, lemon citrus. Body is light, tingly to spritzy carbonation. Taste is pineapple and lime, peach with a dusty, papery finish. Not bad. (3.5)

Pope’s Yard Strong Dark Mild
330ml bottle (The Bottle Shop, St. Albans)
Deep red, frothy tan head. Slightly sour fruity apple estery aroma. Dirty and sour taste, yeugh, a bit of apple. Unclean yeastiness in the finish. 4 months till it?s BB, and this is off already. 2 strikes, gonna shy away from Pope?s Yard in the future, simply not worth the risk. I have never made a homebrew as bad as this, and if I had, it would go down the drain. It?s shameful to ask money for it.
