Cask, somewhere in Clifton, Bristol. Brownish hue. Very dull bog standard bitter,little to comment on or recommend. Insipid hoppy maltiness never manages to stimulate. Yawn.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2008 A popular beer, malt and hops aroma and sometimes sulphur, biscuity (Protzy!) malt taste with a good bitterness and some fruit, however there is quite an offputting yeast flavour. An olive oil producer once told me it reminded him of uncooked snails. How often he eats those I am unsure. A good, easy bitter, not much excitement in there and for my taste a disagreeable yeast flavour - good body and dry finish however.

Cask Bon Accord. Aroma is minimal to start but becomes a good balance of biscuity malts with slight hop resin and floural notes. Taste is a similar bag of tricks slight peppery note in the finish. Great session ale.

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Amber with a creamy off-white head; citrus aroma; smooth and creamy texture; sharp bitter burst to start then developing an orange fruitiness; dry buttery and biscuity finish. An excellent everyday bitter.
