Cask (Queen’s Head, London)
Nice ruddy bitter. Gently sweet malts in the taste. Sessionable, and quite unchallenging. Finish just a bit sweet, and has a very delicate dryness. Beer for drinking not thinking.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at CP&K. It pours clear brown with a medium off-white head. The nose is bitter-sweet, brown bread, wood, light toffee and nut. The taste is rather bitter upfront, pine-needles, varnish, earth, light caramel, nut, brown bread, mild astringency and chewy malt backdrop with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Good level of bitterness and high drinkability. A rather nice bitter.
