@Cask. Rica pero flojea conforme pasa el tiemo. Dark, malty, complex and satisfyingly thick without being cloying, yet very rrefreshing and all at 3.8%! A stunning beer.

Handpump ar Doggett's Coat & Badge in London. Orange bright semi clear pour, ivory little foam so much retention. Nose: roast, hint of oxidation some minor flaws but not bad at all. Almonds too. Mouth: lovely! Watery with soft and silky notes of almonds and a roast and cherry like finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oscarís wine Bar; York. This was the only non macro on draught, and in fact it is on cask. The beer is in very good condition. Copper color and a thick, lacig head. Smooth creamy palate. Light aroma with grain and hops. Flavor is dry and bitter, and the hop flavor is more prominent here. My first cask bitter of my 2016 travels l, and I enjoyed this more than I expected after seeing the previois ratings.

Towey1989 (1899) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2016
Cask at The Wickstead Arms, Nantwich. A clear pale amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, some fruits, slight butter and subtle bready malts. Taste of caramel, toffee, bready malts, slight butter, a little fruit and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A dry, slightly buttery, malty bitterness in the finish. Not a bad bitter overall but quite buttery, a dry finish too.

Dark amber beer with a white head and faint fruity aroma. Flavour is a bit hoppy, a touch of fruit. Itís slightly sickly and Iím not convinced itís especially well kept in here but itís okay.

Light amber beer, light-medium carbonation. A little oily on the palate. Nice caramel maltiness, followed by crisp citrus and peppery hops. Bit of a wierd doughy, buttery finish.
