DruncanVeasey (7249) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2009 The Knott, Manchester. Pale lagery looks. Muted butter and odd sweet Strawberry Chewit and fern aroma. Rattle of overhead train, Tom waits rasping on the box, chlorophyll reinforcement. Sickly strange and medicinal with cherry, hay, and vanilla. Long sweet biscuit. Needs a bit of warming up. Dried apricot/hairy citrus. Not enough bite for me. Sweet and weird.

A Mes rate: Cask at the Marble Arch Inn.
Nice gold colour with a good white head. Very grassy green hoppage in the nose with a slight sweetness from the malt. Straight forward malt and hop flavour. Slight tea, light tobacco notes and a nice creamy bitter finish. Beats Boddys for sure if you ask me.
