DruncanVeasey (7157) - NUNEATON, Top 23, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2013
Thought this was JHB? Last sampled for breakfast on the back seat of a National Express between Heathrow and Gatwick. This bottle back to back with a Kernel. Slim-lidded lager gold wafting with pine, white musk and mandarin handwash, boiled flowers. Decent sweet brittle (lightly buttered) pine, lime and crackers flavour possibly mildly damaged by bottling. Buttery grass bitterness and lime finish. I probably shouldn’t but prefer this to the Kernel.
