Cask during a Wetherspoon Beer Festival in 2010. No notes as pre-Ratebeer for me but rating transferred from the Facebook Beerseek app.

JDW Autumn Fest, 2010. Classed by JDW, for whom this beer is exclusively made, as an IPA, this is a robustly hopped golden ale. More hoppy than an APA, but not too aggressive. Quite drinkable.

Rune (13507) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 12, 2010
Half, hand pulled cask at Standing Order (JDW). Lasting, thin beige head atop of a near-clear amber body. Floral aroma with lemony hops. Peaches and lime to the fruity taste profile, along with earthy malts. Rounded, long-lived bitter ending. Medium body. Refreshing. (Edinburgh, 29.11.2010).

DruncanVeasey (8283) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2010
The Baron, Hinckley. Honey amber with a solid off white head. Soapy grapefruit aroma. Soapy perfumed taste; stillness, shave of old lemon, grapefruit milkshake, huge lace. Good moussey lemon and lime feel; hops and softness. Tasty and well-hopped, as anything from Harviestoun tends to be.

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2010
Cask at the Tyburn, JDW, London. Pours clear, amber-gold with a very creamy, off-white head. Bready nose with some pineapple and floral hops. Nice flavor, with caramel and honey sweetness and some more fruity and dirty bitters. Light to medium in body with soft carbonation. Balanced finish, with more bread and butter malts, some honey, and tropical fruits. Light, dry earth in the throat, with light herbs as well. Not very complex, per se, but quite well rounded.
