DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2011
Cask, The Pub, Leicester, 20/05/11. Pale and resolving with a well retained moussey white foam. Aroma of sweet apple flesh, white fruit, pine and English woods, custard. Smooth, slightly almondy, oak-hinting with a wring of non-committal citrus and English woodland. Surprising rasp in the finish. Condition like silk, no real spike or zest. Vegetables at the edges, hint of liquorice. For me, further evidence that 1) Willamette doesn’t shine on its own and 2) The Pub is one of my favourite pubs in the world but maintaining 15 handpumps can occasionally detract from the freshness of what’s on offer.

leaparsons (8323) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2011
Cask, Criterion, Leicester. Pale gold with a bubbly off-white foam. Aromas are woody and nutty with mellow lemon and green leaves. Hints of caramel with floral notes. Flavours are sweet base biscuit malts with light pine and autumnal notes. Leafy with bittersweet grapefruit. Floral and herbal with a dry finish. Oakham know hops.

DanielBrown (3925) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2011
Hand pulled at the Bartons Arms, Birmingham. Fresh golden ale, with a loosely bubbled white head. As delicious a golden as you would expect from Oakham. This hop evidently gives a consistent tangy flavour, which is neither as sweet or sour as some other varieties. Tastes a teeny bit winey, a weeny bit white grape juicy. A slight drying on the finish, but not aggressive. All round super balanced. Like hop milk.
