DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 19, 2014
Or, "Toni Hood" as my spell check has renamed it. Cask handpull, PoW, Hinckley, 19/03/14. Dusted brass with a slim white foam. Powdered ginger and/or coriander aroma with sweet malt loaf and apple strudel wafts. Pleasantly overdone spekuloos spice flavour with hints of background dankness, honey and lemon puff biscuit. Dough and Anna’s biscuit linger. Not bad but a Danish pint is plenty.

jmgreenuk (4006) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2013
Hand pulled at the White Swan, Solihull. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is a little fruity, leading to a medium to weak bitter flavour with lots of malt and fruity hops on the smooth and refreshing palate. I need to track down more ales from Springhead!
