13th August 2015
GBBF Day 3. Cask. The annual Harrisoni/madmitch76 walkabout. Clear amber beer, small bubbly white head. Palate is light and mildly crisp. Light caramel and a touch of paper in the malts. Touch of dried fruits. Light finish. The nice condition on this beer struggles to elevate some fairly bland flavours.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2014 Cask at The Empress, Romsey Town area of Cambridge, Saturday 20th December 2014. Pours clear amber good clarity. Flat and boring. I never had high hopes for this beer but still disappointed as it is at best a below average effort. To be fair to the pub it is in good nick, its just a bit poor really. A6 A4 T5 P2 Ov10 2.7
