Finn (4003) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Crosse Keys, Bank 5 Nov 12. JDW festivaløl. Dyp brun. Lavt luftig skum. Antydning til plommer i aromaen. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Stikkelsbær. Holder seg syrlig lenge med en litt tung bitter ettersmak.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2012
Cask ale, JDWs festival, 1/3 pint at Crosse Keys. Bright naked surface to a clear, dark amber coloured body. Aroma of caramel malts followed by a malt-fruity taste character that lingers throughout. Pleasant enough (London, 05.11.2012).

leaparsons (7934) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2012
Cask, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Brown with an off white foam. Aromas are weetabix, berries and light chocolate with stewed apple. Herbal with some yeasty, musty notes. Fairly floral with light nuttiness and spiced tea. Flavours are toffee malts with slightly tart lemon and berries. Chocolate with hints of lactose and barnyard yeast. Fruity and dry, spicy on the finish. A bit different.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2012
Cask handpull, The Briar Rose, Brum, 10/11/12. Wow- another festival winner in bostin’ nick in this seething pre-match Spoons. Skimmed, dappled bronze. Soft aniseed and dandelion aroma. Slightly Batemansesque soft aniseed and caramel flavour with restrained herbal English hop; the dankness of dew on grass/canvass. Late cream and nutmeg. Dull but without flaws. Well done for what it is.
