Cask @ New Brew-m, Burnley. Clear golden with a thin head. Has a very dry fruitiness in its nose with a less stated taste that’s more crisp than flavoursome.

On cask at the Brunswick Inn
This bitter was so-so and mostly unremarkable. Lacking anything to set it apart from the other cask bitters around town I’d say you have no reason to seek it out unless you are just getting off the train and want to start ticking right away.

Aroma / Appearance - The golden body was flat and lifeless. Fresh apple chips, soft hops, and sweet malts were generally bland but also without any glaring flaws.

Flavor / Palate - The mixture of hops and malt that was present did not do much to shake up the senses. Even the transition to a sweet honey finish was late in coming. Almost like a glass of Honey Crisps it had little depth and disappeared quickly. Don’t bother unless you want to tick a new brewery.

From cask at the Brunswick tavern derby. Pale, not much to it but a nice easy lunchtime pint.

BeerCast_Rich (1905) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 26, 2011
[cask at the Brunswick Inn, Derby] Hazy amber beer, grassy hop on the nose. Something of the hop flavour about it at first, but the dryness soon takes over and it fades in the aftertaste somewhat. Shame, as that almost holds it back a bit. It has hops in the title, but I actually preferred the weaker White Feather. It wasn’t at all bad though, having said that [18042009]

Cask - The Brunswick Inn, Derby. A clear yellow beer with a lasting & lacing, small, creamy white head. Subtle citrus - mainly lemon, maybe grapefruit - background sulphur notes. Toasty, lemon flavours a bit of a pithy, apple skin bitterness and a finishing earhy yeastiness. Light body, short finish with light to medium carbonation.

DruncanVeasey (7882) - NUNEATON, TOP, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 8, 2010
Cask handpull, The Brunswick Inn, Derby. Still gold with a thin white collar and drapes of lace. Aroma balances sulphur, dunked Rich Tea biscuits and slightly musky, perfumey citrus hop alluding at celery and lemongrass. Dry and lemony with a long,sweet lemon puff biscuit aftertaste. Some boiled lemony sweets and slight snatch. Did I say ’lemon’ enough? Unexciting but decent.
