Cask at CBC, London. Pours clear russet with a modest, white foam head. Quite a lovely aroma of lightly toasted malts, caramel and leaves. Light to medium sweet flavor, veery nive toasted caramel, toasty bread, mild leafy bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Beautiful carbonation. Sweet, lightly bitter finish, more toasted caramel and modest bread, subtle fruits, toast. This is one of the best, most well balanced bitters I’ve ever had.

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.
