Clean biscuity hops and malt on nose, rich flavour with more malt, a vinous note and a good bitter dry finish.

Cask at a pub in Deal. Pours a deep amber, with a small off white head. Aroma and taste was toffee, caramel, and a light hoppiness. Dry and bitter finish

Cask at Tom Cribb pub in London. Clear red amber pour, off-white head. Slightly sweet malt, light fruit, light easy drinking. Probably my favorite of the ones I had there.

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.

DruncanVeasey (8401) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2011
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.

3.1
SamGamgee (2585) - 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.
