Amber color. Simple aroma, light honey. The sweet caramel flavor is pleasant, with a light touch of cookies, balanced, easily drinkable, with correct final bitterness. Easy but pleasant.

Cask handpull at Crosse Keys JDW. That’s a bit startling. Very distinctive, not sure I entirely like it. It’s a bit dusty and earthy. Quite full. Not entirely pleasant. toffeeish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Brown amber with white head. Sweet and nutty right from the off, I wrote sweet chestnut and hazelnut. I was really pretty impressed with it, but maybe that was because the other beers in there were so hopeless. Late drying, rich fruity with caramel. mmmm.

Dark amber colour. Quite malty with some caramel notes. Not too much obvious wattle seed, altthough I’m not too sure what wattle seed would taste like. Rather biscuity flavour. OK
