Peach, apple and malt aroma. Golden amber color. Light sweet peach malt flavor with just a kiss of hops. Decent but not spetacular.

Cask~ Morarities, Phildaelphia, PA- amber coloring, nice head and lacing, malt and vegetable and mild hops. Pretty middle of the road, but better than most of the American’s i’d put in a similar category.

Cask at The Wall, London. Amazing that it’s taken me more than 1100 beers to get to Bass, an old favourite. A nice dark orange with thin head. Malty, fruit notes of orange. With a nice bitter finish. A solid bitter.

Cask @ Old White Swan, november 07. Shinny golden color with a small white head (sparkler). Skunky, flat, dull flavor with some oxidized notes. Boring. Medium to light mouthfeel, tired and dull. Sad. Oxidized, ropey aroma. Sick. Sad, tired bitter.

Pint draught straght from the cask at The Dolphin, Plymouth. Light brown IPA with very small head, low carbonation, sulphorous nose, predominantly malty & full bodied with a bitter aftertaste. Still a classic IPA if you can find it well kept.

Cask - Two Sawyers, Canterbury. An amber beer with a nice, creamy white head. Grainy caramel aromas with some hoppy earthiness. Monotonous caramel maltiness with a touch of citrus. Smooth on the palate with a short finish. Nothing exceptional.

Cask@ The King’s Arms, Waterloo. A nice nose of cream and vanilla - very ESB like. Body somewhat thinner than an ESB. A slight unpleasant alcohol and metallic aftertaste on the tp of the tongue. Overall a decent beer for a couple of pints but no more.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. At The Red Lion, Crown Passage off Pall Mall, London. Shared with my wife, who quite liked it; me ... meh. Poured amber-tinged gold with a smallish off-white head. Up-front aroma of sweet light grain malt, vaguely fruity, and a little tart, odd in a bitter, I thought - the light hops seemed a bit harsh and acidic, even to the nose. The taste - yes, quite acidic - not strong at all, just a somewhat harsh dry hop with acidic intrusions, at least compensating for an overly sweet malt backbone - is that really dry Kent hops in there? Wish I could tell ... Average body, extremely quick finish, at least the acidity doesn’t linger on the tongue, and made this unique in my short experience of cask bitters this trip - as I said, this could have been overly sweet, almost cloying, but that was compensated for.

a standard bitter pretty much what everybody has been saying about this beer- amber, nice head and lacing, malt and vegetable and a touch of english hops. kind of a bad aftertaste from the vegetable and it is just a tad sweet. i will pass.
