Another beer from Crouch vale that is highly drinkable. Aroma came across as "hoppy" which matched the taste. A Good clear appearance and a fair length helped the scoring.

Towey1989 (1925) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Cask at The Cheshire Cheese, Buxton, Leek (Titanic) A clear golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of grain, some caramel, slight lemon, subtle butter and spicy, floral hops. Taste of apple, some lemon, caramel, slight butter, subtle grain and spicy, earthy, floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dryish, floral hop bitterness in the finish. Wasn’t sure at first as it tasted a little average and buttery but reviewing more got decent spicy, floral hops balanced well with some caramel. Ok.

500ml bottle from ales by mail. Poured clear, pale golden in colour with a decent foamy white head. Sweet and subtly spicy aromas. Hoppy, slightly grassy flavours with a crisp, refreshingly bitter taste. Nice.

EdKing (2412) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2015
UPDATED: APR 6, 2015 Ok, so this seems to be getting pretty high rates but surprised why. Bottle from Waitrose. Nose is buttery, caramel, earthy, citrusy hop, herbal, bit of boiled sweet like it’s been pasteurised. Taste is boiled sweet pasteurised, earthy hop, slight citrous, spicy hop, caramel, barley cereal grain, some dry hop astringency, bit of that butteriness. Not great.

NosirIwont (2368) - Frederikssund, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
Cask @ The Wharf, Aalborg. Pours a clear, dar kstraw yellow with a small, disappearing, dishwash head. Fresh aroma, note of elderflower at first, which quickly turns into apple. Light spicy hop note as it warms. Flavour is apple; feels somewhat juicy. Spicy hops as well. Same finish, dry anda bit tart. Palate feels a bit stale. Overall okay, but feels too stale and also a bit boring. 28.02.15.
