DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 5, 2013
Cask handpull without sparkler, The Felix (JDW), Nuneaton, 05/03/13. Red gold under a slim haloed top. Good fresh mown grass and tangerine aroma. Succulent deep malt sweetness suggesting honeyed crackers overlaid with sappy, thistle-like, floral and orange peel-like hop. Grassy, honeyed and citrus-hinting to the point of (German/Czech) lagerdom. Tasty.

FatPhil (14122) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2013
Draught (Tivoli, Cambridge)
Fresh hoppy bitter aroma. Thinnish palate, but only as you’ld expect from a bitter. Bitter resiny palate - classic UK hops. Some fruity retronasals. A little phenolic and wooly finish. Nice bitter, but unexciting.

Leighton (18714) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2013
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a small, white foam head. Tangy citric aroma. Light sweet flavour with rather unpleasant citric astringency, some tangy rotten lemon. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Some white bread in the finish, a but of dirty hay, some further tangy citrus notes, though less intense, thankfully. Overall I would say this is a mediocre beer in sub-par condition.
