DruncanVeasey (8401) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, - APR 29, 2012
Bottle off Helen and Keith. Bronze-gold with a fine, well-retained white foam. Very English, Bateman’s-esque aroma with a soft, aniseed-like rub of hop and hints of toffee, butter and spiced apple. Full and soft with a dominant almond and aniseed spiciness; hints of chalk and cream, a stir of Twiglet. Well-brewed, inoffensively bland bitter with a strong lager-like almond presence.

Cask at The Holy Inadequate, Etruria. A clear amber colour with a medium off white head. Aroma of fruity malt, some caramel, raisin, subtle chocolate, maybe some grapefruit and earthy hops. Taste of caramel, raisin, biscuit, subtle chocolate and some spicy, earthy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A good, earthy bitterness in the finish. A solid ESB, tastes similar too a fruit and nut chocolate bar.
