Brakspear’s Oxford Gold cask at the Lamb and Flag, Oxford. Very pale gold colour. The aroma is fresh and hoppy. The taste is rather sweet though. It’s light and very easy to drink. Excellent for the summer.

Cask at The Nothe Tavern, Weymouth, enjoyed al-fresco on the deck overlooking the harbour; orangey-gold, white head; taste was bitter orange, nicely tangy, plus biscuity malt and some earthy/flowery hops; dry bitter finish; pleasant, perhaps enhanced by the very pleasant circumstances in which it was drunk.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Cape of Good Hope, Oxford. Pours clear golden with a dense medium-sized head. Aroma has a floral and fruity theme with some ripier fruity and malty notes. Initially sweetish taste does not have very much bitterness but displays aromatic hoppiness; mostly fresh fruity flavours. The palate is light to medium bodied, smooth and flat. Decent, easy cask ale.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of my rare cask ratings. Tried when my wife Glenys was driving. Golden and served quite cold from a hand pump. Gentle bitterness that gradually started to dominate and resulted in a quite bitter finish. Tried at a Marstons owned pub so it was probably the best beer on tap.

Golden cloudy beer with white head bout 2 finger. Hoppy aroma is nicely fresh with citrus and pine, malting under this seems to have bit caramel. Crisp feel, good balance with hoppyness and malting, this is bit cold as I drink so malting stands up more as it gets warmer, medium long malty finish. Nice one.
