Playhouse Spoons, Colchester. Light haze on this amber beer, little cream coloured head. Palate is light with fine carbonation. Semi dry. Sweetish malts, some banana ester underneath. The hops are semi sweet with peach and tangerine with a touch of spice. Interesting and satisfying.

DruncanVeasey (7097) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2012
Cask handpull, The Felix (JDW), Nuneaton, 13/11/12. Slim-lidded, slightly misted bronze. Oddly dank aniseed aroma with toffee. The not-especially-enticing dankness continues on the palate which softens into more pleasant cream and digestive biscuit. Cannot believe the hops are Aussie.

Flavours are weetabix malts with lemon and light mixed tropical fruit. Stewed apple with light spices. Dry and a bit flat to finish. Lacks focus.

jackl (4291) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Cask @ JDW, Victoria Station. The pourís deep amber with a tiny white head. The nose is of brown bread, some twig, sweet nutty malts and shoe polish. The taste is mildly astringent toffee, twig, more sweet chewy malts. Mildly grassy finish. A bit pissy, some lemon peel and red apple. Light body, soft carbonation. Overall, this tasted a bit cheap and harsh. This isnít a beer Iíd quickly return to.
