Cask at The Great Western during the RateBeer Black Country Bus Bash. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a light, foamy white head. Sweet dough in the nose, some hay. Light sweet flavor with dry dough and light bitter straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Moderate sweetness in the end, some further sugary dough, white bread. So so. Quite basic.

Bottle from The Beer Parlour, Chesterfield. Lovely example of a classic, English Best Bitter. Makes me wish I was drinking it after I’d spent a 14 hour shift ploughing fields. Rather than a few hours sanding skirting boards...

Cask @ The Great Western during the RB Black Country Bash. Glad to be finally trying this classic. The pour’s gold with a small head. The nose is fairly reserved. A bit of bread. Some honey, pear. Little else. The taste is more honey and pear. Some orange marmalade. A touch of grassy hops. Dry finish. Light body, fine carbonation. In all, a solid effort. Fairly light, deft.

Draught at Swan,Chaddesley Corbett.
Golden coloured beer under a decent sized creamy head which clings to the glass.This is a beer which is at its best in one of the Bathams houses and benefits by a little extra storage time in the cellar whereupon some of the sweetness departs.It has a sweet malty and fruity aroma.On the taste sweetish malt again and also the fruity citrus notes.Nice mouthfeel.This is also a beer which after a half dozen or so really lets you know that you have been drinking!Great tasting ale.
