Cask conditioned handpump Veritas Leeds 18/07/13. A reddy brown coloured beer with a very tight white creamy head and lace. Subdued fruitiness in the nose. Rich malty fruitiness in the mouth. A long finish. A good sweeter bitter. More than decent.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 17, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2010. A brown beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as hints of butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and chewy toffee, leading to a dry, bitter, and citrusy finish.

DruncanVeasey (6935) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2011
Bottle from Booth’s. Copper with a fine white top. Muted aroma with some light muscovado, toffee and Allsorts notes waking up. Drinks silky with malt fullness; caramel-spread oak, marzipan, milk choc, faint husk and roast. Well made, full, savoury and very slightly dull bitter. But I’m digging the oak.

wheresthepath (1445) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2010
[Cask at the Cumberland Hotel, Alston] Smells almost stout-like, with coffee and malt aromas. Flavour gives toffee followed by a leafy, hoppy bitterness that doesn’t sit well with the pleasant aroma. Disappointing.
