tombyars (1664) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 2, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in November 2010. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear reddish copper in colour with a thin white head. Slight note of roast malt in the short aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts give a fiery digestive biscuit flavour combined with dry woody redcurrant fruit. Spicy aromatic hop resins give a long bitter aftertaste that is not too astringent. Finish is slighlty dry with oak cask elements noted. A decent session bitter.

Leighton (20529) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2010
Cask at The Tyburn JDW. Medium copper pour with a filmy white head. Bready malt nose with some citrus and pine hops. Flavor is lightly sweet with a fairly dynamic bitterness consisting of pine, earth and mild grapefruit. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. The finish is lightly dry with some mild, caramel malts and lingering, earthy hops. Really good.

downender (8464) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms, Bristol 7/11/10. Deep amber in colour with a decent, off-white head. Aroma of biscuit malts, citrus hops and a touch of caramel sweetness. Decent, cereal malt flavour with mandarin fruit and a hoppy, bitter finish. A contender for my favourite beer of the festival.

SilkTork (5689) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 7, 2010
JDW Autumn Fest 2010 - Rochester. pleasant, dryish best bitter with a note of tin which is often found in Cornish beers. Perhaps a bit too robust and serious for my taste - leaves a lingering dusty bitterness that is slightly too dry and assertive.

Bullit (4559) - Burgos, SPAIN - NOV 3, 2010
JDW Fest Autumn 2010
Cask @ Edward Wylie, JDW. Copper colour, thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, citric, sweat; weird sour, not in a bad way. Flavour is sweet caramel malty, dishcloth taste and green tea indeed, plenty of hops, very bitter, fairly dry. Very drinkable.
