Cask at Pilgrims Progress (JDW), Bedford, in ’Spoons Beer Festival ’11. old with a white head. Some sweetness in the aroma. I found the taste was just a vague buttery malt with slight bitterness. Thought this was dull. And where was the lemon?

Cask, JDW, Carlisle. Initial impression is very dry, this mellows slightly and it becomes papery. Lemon is detectable, but minimal. Reckon the term ’fruit beer’ is pushing it a bit!
