Cask at Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford in ’Spoon’s BF ’09. Amber with a white head. Malty aroma with a hint of raisins and milk. Some sharp apple peel in the taste, with a pleasant nutty bitterness.

tombyars (1802) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - MAR 12, 2012
Sampled this ruby ale in Esquire House, Glasgow (JDW) in November 2009. Cask, handpump dispense. Crystal clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. A slight malty aroma but short in intensity. Thin resiny mouthfeel with poor lacing. Pale malts give a robust biscuity malt note with a slight tang of tart redcurrant fruit. Dry hops give a bitter resiny aftertaste which leads to a short sweet crisp green apple note in at the finish. An ok session ale but really lacking body and complexity though.

Handpulled cask at JDW Hatch End. Copper with a beige head. Well balanced fresh bitter with a roasty edge and fresh hoppy finish. I always enjoy beers from this brewer.
