Hand-pulled cask pint at Walsall Cricket Club on 4th July 2015. Dull amber body with a full off-white head. Nice blend of aromas and flavours: fruity hops with a light malty aroma, bitter finish to a slightly fruity and caramel like taste. Decent.

Cask; New Barrack Tavern, Sheffield. Typical bitter. Nice dark, nutty brown colour with a creamy head. Light malts and decent hops; quite well balanced. Light on the palate and good drinkability. Not outstanding but a fair session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The Victoria Inn, Beeston, Notts. Tawny with a nitro-tight white lid. Soft, praline and lactic aroma like a well-used old barrel. Light herbal hop, caramel, a sway of fern, creamy malt finish alluding at cashew. Good, clean ticker’s bitter- you’ll enjoy it once but never come back to it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Cask at Gallows Real Ale Festival 2011) The beer poured amber and clear. Head was small and white. Aroma had malts, hops, toffee and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied and dry. Flavours were toffee, hops, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. I found the aroma and the flavour of the hops used in this beer too acrid and stinging. Otherwise a flawless brew.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask, Bridge Hotel, Newcastle. Unremarkable brown colour with minimal head.
Caramel malts and some vague fruitiness, but very little happening. Bitterness lacked balls. Just about tolerable but flat and underwhelming. Next !
