DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - OCT 14, 2009
Plain old ’Alchemist’, cask gravity, Nottingham 09. Brilliant orange amber with a foaming billow of suds; unprecedented. Beautiful crushed nut maltiness, cashew, herbal and chick pea notes, serious zip of hop comingthrough; lychee, pineapple, but dry and punchy with it. Massive balance again. Leafy, tropical, floral, sweet and dry. Lovely.
