Bottle. Dark Amber. Cloudy on pour (some yeast included in pour). Yeasty (some floaties and lots of sediment). Quite lively natural carbonation. Malty (biscuity malts, buttery caramel & toffee). Fruity (citrus orange). Some hop. Fruity malty ale with some dry bitterness in the finish. Better than I expected it to be. (2008)

DruncanVeasey (8239) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 9, 2016
From a farm shop. Not Ruby but clearish orange gold with a light swirl of detritus and low skim of head. As with previous beers from this brewery all about the yeast with suggestions of clove and bubblegum belonging to a hefeweizen or dunkelweizen. Slightly vinegared mouldering apple and clove aroma. Bazooka chew and rustic cider notes with background wholemeal. Aniseed and TCP homebrew yeast. Farmyard and metallic aroma. A bit rough. Glad I didn’t gift it.

Last wee tasting of the summer
Bottled, 500ml from Wyevale Garden Centre, Bicester, Oxon. Brown with off white head. Initially pretty thin, in fact quite thin throughout, sweetish, fruity malty with a caramel edge. Little on the hop front. Pretty average.
