2012-11-16, cask at Pazzeria, Milan, 6-4-7-4-15=36
Cloudy amber color, generous head. The aroma is a bit yeasty. Good and soft malt flavor, soft body, with correct bitterness, Some yeast, light orange peel.
Very good cask ale, truly British.

2012-08-20, bottle courtesy of Jesper; batch L12018 11/12, 5-4-6-3-12=30
Cloudy amber color; generous head. The aroma is quite yeasty. Sweetish malt flavor, with low bitterness, and too much yeast.
It should be filtered better.
