Taster from bottle at Binny’s, Downers Grove. Fruity smell, nice amber color, a bit cloudy. Large bit of foam from this tiny sample. Taste again is fruity. Very nice, about all I can say about it. Excellent version of this style, why I’m rating it up.

500ml . In a pint . One of the last beers from a gift pack that Uncle Steve got me @ Christmas . Brown Bitter customary colour . Spicy hop nose , malty rich caramel, cake notes . Quite well balanced in textures . This ain’t the type of beer I’d buy myself , and its obviously going to score higher if Cask , but not a bad bottled ale .

Cask at Six Bells, Cambridge. Tawny/copper. Fairly flat. Nice earthy/doughy smell. The taste isn’t so balanced: herby bitter turning to a sour/sweet in the finish. I’ve had this many a time in my pre-RB days. Not convinced it travels so well.
