Cask: Special - Wetherspoon Beer Festival Spring 2012
Kjetil Jikiun, from this Norwegian brewery, has travelled to Batemans Brewery, in Lincolnshire, to re-create a cask version of this beer, especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. It is amber in colour, with an assertive hop aroma which leads to a flavour which is a good balance of hops, subtle fruit and malt, resulting in a bittersweet character, with a smooth, lasting finish.

This imitation brew has a superb texture to its bitterness, but not much flavour.

CamdenD (1181) - Madrid, SPAIN - APR 9, 2012
Truly average bitter. Decent hop character but aside from that, little to make it stand out.

Off cask at wetherspoons at Birmingham. Not usually a fan of bitter but this is quite a tasty beer.

The Pommelers Rest Spoons, Tower Bridge. Clear amber beer, short lived white head. Light crisp palate, semi dry. Nice tart juicy orange with a little marmalade. A little lemon and minerals. Turns sweeter before the dry finish. Good bitter linger. A refreshing beer and one of the finer bitters I’ve had.

Leighton (18711) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW, London. Pours rich, clear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Somewhat nondescript aroma, some light light toast and straw. Light to medium sweet flavor, quite bitter with grass, dirt and twigs. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Nicely balanced to finish with some toasty bread, toasty sugar, burnt grass, light dirt and wood. Very decent overall with lingering hops.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2012
The Baron, 26/03/12. Bright and brassy with an off white layer. Soft and flowery after the Zulu; elderflower, medicinal throat sweet bitterness, hard boiled cherry sweets. Bit messy but OK. Smells like a hedge; shrubs, some weak pine and grain aroma. Has a tainted, gastric, shampoo bitterness again that doesn’t feel right. Odd.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. This had been somewhat Spooned, there was a tart fruitiness rather than hops, line cleaner too, however late on a vinous, sharp note showed through. Hard to come up with a mark.
