3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
JDW Autumn Fest, 2010. Classed by JDW, for whom this beer is exclusively made, as an IPA, this is a robustly hopped golden ale. More hoppy than an APA, but not too aggressive. Quite drinkable.

The Baron, Hinckley. Honey amber with a solid off white head. Soapy

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the Tyburn, JDW, London. Pours clear, amber-gold with a very creamy, off-white head. Bready nose with some pineapple and floral hops. Nice flavor, with caramel and honey sweetness and some more fruity and dirty bitters. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Balanced finish, with more bread and butter malts, some honey, and tropical fruits. Light, dry earth in the throat, with light herbs as well. Not very complex, per se, but quite well rounded.

8th November 2010
Spoons festival! Slightly hazy amber beer with a half decent head. Smooth semi dry palate. Low carbonation. Lots of fresh grapefruit bitterness. Traces of orange and a whisper of peach. Turns a little sweeter before the finish but has a lingering bitter aftertaste. Good effort!
