Cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW), Watford on 15 April 2013. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a dense white head. Aroma was sweet barley sugar mixed with some raisin and a little grassy hop. Flavours were off the mark; some light metallic bitterness, slightly buttery with no balance. Palate was boiled sweets mixed with some chewy malt.

Theydon_Bois (16873) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2013
Cask at the Willow Walk, Victoria, 15/04/13. Lightly hazed golden with a thin frothy white head. Nose is caramel, citurs, pretty thin all told. Taste carries more depth with caramel malt, sugars, orange marmalade and rather surprisingly a trace of booze. Medium body with a bit of oomph, moderate carbonation, dry in the finish with bitter notes. Ok.
