Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Slightly hazy, amber coloured beer, with a tight cream head; aroma of malt and biscuit; crisp malty flavour, becoming more mellow as time goes on, eventually reminding me of Ovaltine.

The Jug and Jester (JDW), Leamington, 17/07/11. Copper with a slick beige lid lining the glass. Slight herbal hop aroma, maybe- not much happening. Soft ferny hop, caramel-draped stone, aniseed, cinder toffee. Good bog standard brown bitter. A welcome return to beeriness after the North Cotswold.

Draught cask at the bridge bar in Belfast. A typical mid brown British bitter this one reminiscent of ringwood best. Fuggles aroma assaults the nose. Hedgerow fruits and bitter finish. Thirst quenching.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (Village Inn, Rayners Lane)
Mid orange-brown, tiny loose head. Aroma like a childrens fizzy sweet. Anna mentioned melted ice cream. However, it’s a bit bland. A bit sweet, the malts are very simple, a little grainy, some husks. A bit watery too, and heading towards thin. Sessionable, but there are better ales out there.

Hand pulled at JDW Hatch End, Harrow. Medium brown,clear with lacey white head. Very well balanced with a subtle hop characture that leaves more aftertaste than you might expect. Good enjoyable session bitter. I would drink it again.
