Bottle. Clear amber. Rich Nelson aroma, inviting you in. Malty body, an English bitter enriched by exotic hops. Fine session ale.

deyholla (7954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Cask at Dean Swift with Sarah. Pours a clear amber gold with a near white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has earthy grassy hops with a hint of dankness and backing bread. Flavor has light grassy hops with backing light grain, bread and leaves.

JorgeLee (1404) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2012
Cask in the Horseshoe, NW3. Copper gold coloured bitter, white head. Fruity hoppy aroma. This is a very drinkable bitter, with a light malty background and a fresh fruity hop character leading to a medium bitter finish. The best I’ve had by these guys so far.

Beersiveknown (3832) - NORTHERN IRELAND - AUG 7, 2012
Bottle at home, courtesy of the brewery. Pours medium amber with a slight off-white open textured head. The nose is all about nelson sauvin, grapes and melon with a touch of toffee crystal malt in behind. Medium bodied, lots of fruit, touch of marscapone, grapes, lycheee, little by way of bitterness, tongue tingling at finish

Theydon_Bois (12569) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle at home (badged as ’The Dukes Ale’ ). Pours to a clear amber/gold with a very thin white head and plenty of carbonation in evidence. Citrus, caramel and grass on the nose. Sweet in the taste but to a fairly low level, tangerine and mild grape flavours coming across. Malty backbone and a dryish finish. Not my favourite W&E beer but decent stuff none the less and enjoying drinking this as I review. Cheers!

I had a tour around this brewery recently and let me tell you it was the highlight of my year do far. A group of thoroughly nice blokes making thoroughly nice beer. This was my favourite of the day and is just as good now out of the bottle, let's hope old price willy gets married more often so we get more beers like this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cask at Pigs Ear. Hazy amber beer, tidy white head. Light dry palate. Mild carbonation. Skunky Nelson with a little floralness. Mild marmalade underneath. Semi dry finish. Flavoursome but the Nelson is pretty skunky.

EdKing (2115) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2012
Bottle from John Lewis Food Hall. Colour is really good. Strong clear chestnut, thin white head. Nose is citrous, caramel, grassy hay. Taste is dry biscuity malt, caramel, bite of dry citrous hops, ale fruitiness, crisp and hoppy on the finish. Surprised this was so good.

Cask at Bree Louise, London. Golden beer with a lasting offwhite head. Hoppy grassy aroma with malt and fruits. Hoppy flavor, grapefruit, apples and grass, hay, metal pine apple notes. Long bitter finish, very refreshing.
