Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear copper pour with a foamy, white cap. Doughy malts on the nose with berries. Pretty sweet flavor, more dough, hints of burnt sugar and ripe fruits, a bit of earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Slightly baked bread in the finish, toasty sugar and lasting grass. Not bad overall.

Gravity, 3rd Hinckley BF. Copper, coarse-bubbled diminishing white collar. Roasted nut aroma underpinned with orange, and some alcohol. Bright and orange soapy with sneaking chocolate, chestnut, roast and praline notes. Top bitter; great balance of bitterness, both malt and hop-derived. I’ve not had a less than good beer from BH, and this isn’t one either.

Cask, Crescent, Salford. Dark amber colour with a thin white head. Medium lace. Fragrant yet dusty aroma . Flavour was on the sweet side and had christmas cake, malt and some fruitiness. Some kind of weird chemical like tang in there which I couldn’t place. Interesting and downable.
