Cask at the pub of the same name i.e The Barnes Wallis, Ripley, Derbyshire, 08-07-10 Really soapy hops in the mouth, bit too soapy for me. The bitterness shows better balance than the Dambusters IPA but still lacks something compared to that beer, a bit fruity, its ok stuff, pours gold with white rim. A5 A4 T5 P3 Ov10 2.7

Cask handpull at The Talbot Taphouse (the Amber tap), Ripley, Derbyshire, 30/04/11. Brassy amber with good lacing condition and some aroma to it- at last a venue north of Nuneaton not sparklering their beer into nothingness..Thistle and orange peel on the nose. Gentle wash of tangy orange, floury vanilla, Rich Tea linger. Clean and balanced, some digestives dunked in seawater. Good.
