UPDATED: NOV 5, 2011 Cask at Wetherspoons, Chippenham, also bottled from Beartown shop. Light brown / copper, well carbonated (bottle). Strong malt aroma, becoming a tasty but not overpowering fruitiness, slight hint of fruit cake. Good balance of bitterness/flavour.

Gravity, 3rd Hinckley BF. Oooh, ’slight haze’ says the sign on the cask. Like I give a shit. Fully clouded, headless bronze but the aroma and flavour are there. This is a ringer for Corfu Real Ale Special believe it or not; bright apricot and violet-accented floweriness over a bittersweet, nut-hinting digestive biscuit base. Hints of mushroom and chocolate; flowery, jellied orange fruit aroma. Hops and malts dovetailed sweetly. Excellent.

Cask at a Spoons in Manchester. A hazy amber beer with a dense off-white head, due to being served thru a sparkler. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, caramel, and grain, leading to a bitter citrusy finish.

A Mes rate: cask at Baker St ’Sporks.
Clean golden colour with a slight brown tinge and a thin off white head. No sparkler! This place is definitely on the up... This is actually really good. A very well balanced blend of big grassy hops with a good citric bite on top of a well behaved biscuit malt base with just a slight hint of caramel. Lovely mineral note in the finish with a restrained but classy dryness on the palate. Superbly drinkable. A really good drop of English. I only stopped in for a quick one on my way home after a few Chimays with Alan but this was a really pleasant surprise. Served in very good condition (as is increasingly the case at this place) and certainly one of the best I have had from Beartown. Yum.

Cask at the Market Porter. Spicy aroma. Dark amber color with a white head. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Flavor is likely caramel malt, but it’s strongly overlaid with hottish spice - not pepper - ginger? Something like that. Really refreshing.
