DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2011
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.

Pint on cask. Pours amber with a creamy white head. Aroma is grassy, roasted malt, caramel, wholemeal bread, oak. Taste is grassy and earthy with caramel and roasted malt. Medium bitterness, some chocolate and banana, light bough, medium carbonation. Don’t know what an ’IPA-style bitter’ is meant to be.
