Willow Walk, Victoria 2 Nov 11. JDW festivaløl. Mørk gyldenbrun. Veldig lavt skum. Tilstedeværende fruktaroma. Tynn på smak. Litt syrlig og tørr ettersmak. ManVsBeer (10946) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Smooth best bitter with a creamy head, has a slightly sweet and nice bitterness to it. Rune (13493) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
1/3 pint, hand pulled cask at Willow Walk. Clear amber to a naked surface. Modest aroma of malts and fruits. The taste is also malt-fruity leaving a jam-like impression. Smooth bitter ending. Decent bitter, on par with the style (JDWs real-ale festival, London, 02.11.2012).

Precious little character here, a bit of dry hop in the finish and somewhat of a sour note. Easy-drinking, but incredibly boring beer. berkshirejohn (6650) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2012

Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Leaves and faint berry fruits on the nose. Light sweet flavour, fairly bitter wih dry, crunchy leaves, faint bread, a bit of citric astringency. Light bodies with fine carbonation. Somewhat dry to finish with more bitter, crunchy leaves, wood, faint dry fruits. Nothing special here. leaparsons (10751) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2012
