Cask at the Hopbine, Cambridge. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. Dry citrus aroma, some lemon. Light dry dough flavor, light sweetness, some further lemon, a bit of white sugar, mellow bitter straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. Lightly sweet to finish with low bitterness, some white bread. Pleasant beer. Easy drinker.

Handpull cask at the Jolly Brewer, Stamford. Light, almost honey brown. Small uneven ring of off-white head. Some red berry on the muted yet enticing smell. Taste is a messy malt bomb: bittersweet, grainy and slightly stale. More bitterness in the finish. Not all that keen.

Cask (Cambridge Brew House, Cambridge) (6:3+:5+:3:11+=2.8+++)
Bland sweet malty aroma. Taste has more mushroom. Bland sweet watery bitter. Sweet and smooth palate. Nothing wrong technically, just incredibly dull.
