Warning! Early amateur rating! On tap at the Sun Inn, Kelvedon. AKA Nuns Delight! Mild dark ale, malty, not too sweet but not that bitter either. Drinkable.

Cask handpull, The Larry (JDW), Nuneaton. Came off the Jaipur when I realised I’d never had this. Resolving chesnut with a flat nitro collar. Muted woodsy elder and nut aroma. House orange fruit, Nutella and finely sifted choc on toast. Metal and almond. File under pleasant surprise.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - JAN 1, 2011
Handpump at the brewery. Deep amber color with good clarity and a small but lasting head. Light toffee, dry, burnt caramel and very light hops in the aroma. Bitter flavor with light toasty malt and burnt caramel for balance. Medium bodied with lower carbonation. Finishes a little minerally and chalky, drying in the end.

Clear chestnut cognac brown. Off-white head. Aroma is alot of butterscotch and caramel malts. Taste is more or less the same, nutty, some slight citrus action. This is a good session beer.
