Cask, gravity, at St Neots BF ’09 (’Booze on the Ouse’). Dark reddish brown. Delightful leathery malt aroma. Very sweet sugary taste tending to cloy. Slight dryness which seemed to intensify. Wasn’t sure about this one at first, but it grew on me.

Cask Mill, Cambridge. Disappointing vinegary mess. I think the pub must take the blame for this. Will re-rate when I find a better one
