DruncanVeasey (7768) - NUNEATON, 3rd, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2012
500ml bottle Mum and Dad brought me back from Cornwall. Bright orange with a slim white collar. Buttered orange, beeswax and pine aroma- pretty heavy on the butter, with an oily rub of hopcone. On the tongue faint mildew, apricot and piney hop with buttered white toast. Decent grassy finish, light bitterness and soap. Overly buttery but pleasant enough.

Cask (handpump) at Great British Beer Festival, day 4 on 5 August 2011. Darkish gold colour. Grassy aroma. Thought I picked up a salty seaweed tang but that’s probably just a case of suggestion. Develops into a sharp, clean golden ale with a pleasant tangy hop presence. Would make a decent Summer quaffer.

On tap at GBBF ’11. Golden, ring of froth. Smells a bit ping pong (the sport, not the rhyming slang). Tropical cordial - some guava. Plainish. Dry finish, not much hops.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2011 Cask (GBBF2011, Wed) (7:3+:6:4:13=3.3)
Super pungent hoppy aroma. Full hoppy body, but light grains push through to the finish. Touch milky, but also alas a touch plasticky.
Rerate: Cask (GBBF2011, Friday) (6+:4:6:4:13=3.3)
Sweet sherbet aroma. Grassy and plant-matter too. Adequate malty body, quite sweet and full. Plenty of malted barley. Finish has classic UK bitter hops, and typically muted. Just a bit of pungency. Improves as you drink it.
