Cask. Aroma pungently caramel and toffee. Pours orange golden with thin lace. Pleasant taste although a little watery. Some languorous quality but more persistence than variation. But better than the bitter or the rye.

Towey1989 (1658) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, some melon, slight lime, a little grapefruit and subtle wheat. Taste of lemon, melon, some orange, slight grapefruit, a little wheat, maybe straw and subtle caramel. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly astringent, citrus hop bitterness in the finish. A decent, cask NZ hopped pale ale. Lots of citrus in the taste, the aroma needs a boost though. The finish is a little too bitter too.

Cask at the Grain & Hop Store, Cambridge. Deep gold with a medium sized head. Buttery wheats smell. Sweet honeyed taste, goes down easily. Surprisingly short finish. Hard to get excited about, but itís pleasant. I enjoyed drinking it, although I wouldnít have another.
