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.

The Baron, Hinckley. Honey amber with a solid off white head. Soapy
grapefruit aroma. Soapy perfumed taste; stillness, shave of old lemon, grapefruit milkshake, huge lace. Good moussey lemon and lime feel; hops and softness. Tasty and well-hopped, as anything from Harviestoun tends to be.

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. At last something at this Spoonsfest to awaken the taste buds. Golden amber with a thin cream head; floral aroma with a hint of spice; sharp grapefruit flavour to start then becoming slightly sweeter; there’s a prolonged finish with a dry, deep, bitterness. Excellent.

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!
