DruncanVeasey (7112) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 1) Gravity, 3rd Hinckley BF. Huge departure from the Oakham, but another decent pale brew. Orange amber, fine white skim and lace. Crushed digestive aroma with mildewed choc and mushroom. Big fresh malty sweetness, cheesecake, almond, toast. Underlying hop grassiness with apricot, then some cherry-flavoured boiled sweets showing up. Very decent vanilla and digestive afters. Length and layered malt depth beyond its strength. Didn’t realise it was from Chippenham- point deducted. Good. 2) Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton, 19/09/12. Lightly hazed orange gold with a skim of white head. Slight grassy, gooseberry, herb aroma. Grass and bready unfiltered helles character; orange and lemon barley. 636312.

wyzzywyz22 (1942) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2009
Cask, Dispensary, Liverpool. Pallid gold with minimal head. Not a huge amount in the aroma, some vague malt maybe. Unremarkable flavour with reasonable balance. Easy enough drinking. The restrained hoppage rescued this fom the depths of mediocrity.
