<i>2008-11-12, Cask Conditioned at The Castle, Furnival St., London, 6-4-6-3-13=32</i>
Hazy copper color. It has a malty and lightly fruity aroma; flavor of malt and caramel, with some residual sweetness, and good bitterness level. First impression confirmed.

<i>2008-11-03, Cask Conditioned at J.D. Wetherspoon - Shakespear’s Head, London, 6-3-7-3-13=32</i>
Light amber color, thin head. The aroma is light. It has a delicate, pleasant flavor, with caramel, lightly flowery and grassy; very light metallic touch too. Correct bitterness. A bit of originality, but quite simple.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2010 1) Faversham Spoons. Tawny amber with white halo. Lime and leafy hops on the nose. Surprisingly earthy citrus hop with a gnaw of chlorophyll. Bit soily. Clean, abrupt and bitter on the end. Good balancing vanilla, tea and honeyish malt. Lemony, earthy, solidly hopped. Touch of malt nuttiness. Tasty. 2) The Red Lion, Burbage. Caramel, choc, slight hop hum aroma. Brass with draped white lid. Lots of earth, wood sap, mouldy choc. Bittersweet creamy nut linger. Nice. 737313.
