Cask at the Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. Clear darkish amber beer. A little suddy pale tan head. Light dry palate. Light malty base. okay tangy dried fruit hops. Quite a bitter finish. Not bad but the brewery can do much more exciting beers than this.

UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Cask, gravity at the Orchard Inn, Bristol 27.12.11 Dark brown in colour with a wonderful aroma of burnt toast. Fruity with a little sourness in the mouth, tangy and with middling bitterness. This is ok but I feel that it may be a little past its best. A7 A3 T5 P2 Ov11 2.8 Had this again on Cask, handpump at The Grain Barge, Bristol, 28.01.12 Pours mid brown with a white head. This is a little hoppy and a much better beer than I had when tried last month however it still comes up short when tried alongside the Southville Hop even despite the latter being sampled in bottle. The hops are a little underwhelming, lacks a bit of zap and bite but its fine. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov12 3.1

Cask conditioned Handpump Cask & Kitchen London. A chestnut coloured beer with a whitish head. A slim aroma but there are coffee notes in there. Same in the mouth. Husky malts and hints of fruit. Pretty tasty. Definitely malty rather than hoppy which was a surprise. Nice enough.

Cask-condtioned at the Eldon House, Bristol 10/12/11. Ruddy brown in colour with a slight, off-white head. Aroma of caramel, berry fruits and some leafy hops. Flavour also began with some sweetness, before more fruit some nuttiness and a lingering bitter finish. Enjoyable.
