Craft. Very light haze on this gold beer. Tidy white head. Light dry palate. Dry pale malt quickly gives way to decent hops. Juicy orange with traces of grapefruit and lemon. Mild floral notes. Semi dry finish. Another decent beer from Buxton.

DruncanVeasey (8225) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2011
BC from the brewery. Burnished gold with a fine, clinging white cap. Juicy marmalade-like aroma with some sourish, gooseberry undercurrents; sticky hop, faint pineapple jelly. Lemony, jellied orange hop with a rub of soapiness; some earthy malt on the finish. Soft, balanced, bittersweet. Good beer.

Cask handpull at Five Lamps Derby. Quite a hoppy simple bitter. Just very simple but very pleasant too. Good touch of finishing bitterness

I liked this, the half I had in the showroom bar was not in the best condition but the beer didnt suffer for it. Classic british ale in the modern tradition of being flavourful and tasty. Nice.
