COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special - JDW Autumn 2011 Festival.
Doug Odell, from Odell Brewery, has travelled to Caledonian Brewery (Edinburgh) to re-create this beer especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. Light mahogany in colour, this beer has a nutty, roasted malt aroma and an assertive caramel malt flavour, with undertones of chocolate, leading to a soft citrus and smooth bitterness. This provides a bright, clean finish and a balance to the upfront malt character Hops: Cascade, Perle

Robe cuivrée. Arômes de céréales, pas grand chose d?autre. Goût de caramel brûlé. légères notes d’agrumes et de fruits confits. Heureusement plutôt courte en bouche. Pas franchement ma tasse de thé.

What I tried had little aroma, though this may be from allergies. The flavor profile is kind of limited, no one thing punches through and I was left feeling like I missed something, it left the slightly bitter finish without anything significant to complement.

Rather mild aroma and taste. The appearance looks rich with a nice white head. Overall, nothing special but not bad at all.

Nice flavor, even on the palate. The appearance has great color. The aroma is light. Compliments my gyro nicely.

Crosse Keys Spoons. Clear dark amber beer, tidy pale tan head. Light dry palate. Whisper of sulphur. Orange and red fruits underneath the toffee malt. Subtle bubblegum ester. Dry finish. Okay.

tombyars (2217) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2011
Tasted this in The Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in October 2011. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale mahogany in colour with a thin white head. Cracked walnuts in the short aroma. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing throughout. Pale malt base gives a rich maltloaf flavour with juicy raisins evident. Slight citric notes of satsumas leading to the dusty bitter aftertaste. Finish is malty with syrupy sweet raisins. An excellent version of a Scottish premium export.

Cask conditioned Handpump Four Candles Oxford. A regular brown coloured beer with a touch of white head and lacing. A sweet and toasty beer. Nice caramel notes. Malty and bready. Clean and smooth. Decent enough.
