Towey1989 (724) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of toasty malt, caramel, some red berries, subtle butter and orange. Taste is similar of toasty malts, caramel, subtle toffee, some red berries, slight butter and orange. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A soft, sweetish, toasted orange bitterness in the finish. Quite a sweet, malty beer for a 6 percenter. Some citrus flavours but a little buttery, it’s good but not quite great.

Good zesty sweet fruity aroma, small off-white head. Nice malty, slightly toasty caramel, with some hoppy notes and nice bitter finish.

Caramel nose. Hoppy with good strength. Amber appearance. Interesting beer. Toffee flavours and quite sweet. Dangerous as very drinkable. Definitely will explore again.

Cask. Bronze ale with a thick light tan head. Nose is tea, light toffee, lemon. Taste is... Pungent! Lots of tea, bitter (off) citrus, toffee, apple... There’s something I’m not quite digging here, but its interesting enough.
