A Mes rate. Gravicask at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. A vivid dark golden colour with a thin but stable white head and pretty decent condition. Reasonable malt and hop balance in the aroma with some slight spice. In the mouth it’s a pretty tasty beer actually. A straight down the line best with a great balance of bready malt and fruity hops. Something slightly German about it but I’m not sure what. Anyway, decent stuff overall.

Handpulled cask at the Telegraph, Moulton, Northhampton. I have drunk this beer a lot since it first appeared in the early 90s, mostly in North Yorkshire includind the brewery bar. Orange amber with a creamy white head. A well balanced northern bitter with a complex malt profile and plenty of dry english hops. A consistently good session beer.

Great beer this one. Famous from yorkshire and a good tasting session ale. at 3.8% it is surprisingly not that strong and i do prefer beers that are less strong in general. Excellent beer from Black sheep.

A nutty amber ale with a small, wispy head of pure white. Citric hoppy notes in the aroma. Hops again and toasted cereals in the mouth very light and easy. A great session drinker.

Darker orange amber coloured beer with no carbonation and an average creamy oof-white head. Sweet fruity aroma with some light caramel touches. Full creamy palate. Finish is bitter fruity, longer dry ending. A very nice, well balanced bitter

On draught at The Hope, Wandsworth (next door to Chez Bruce): Amber, small , stable and lacy off-white head; distinctive worty-hoppy nose with a - not unpleasant - barnyardy touch, pretty light bodied, moderate to stronger bitter-sweet flavour; increasing fruitiness and maltiness in the lingering bitter-sweet finish. Good session beer and a good appetizer before You enter the the culinary heaven of Chez Bruce............

Cask, White Lion, West Kirby. Amber colour with a medium creamy white head. Thin aroma; touch of yeast & malt . Sweetish and clean flavour with a dose of more malt and some light fruit. Medium bitter finish. All pretty straightforward and unremarkable, but drinkable.
