Cask at the Old Bell, Waltham St Lawrence. Chestnut with a loose white head; fruity malt aroma; toffee malt taste; and a Brazil nut finish. A traditional malt-lead bitter, in my opinion, so perhaps not the same beer as the one described here!

JorgeLee (1345) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2012
Cask at the Kings Head W2. Golden bitter, small white head. A fairly generic golden ale, with hints of grain, a tiny bit of a spicy yeast and some gentle hopping. Pleasant (if unremarkable) on the first day of summer (in late July).

DruncanVeasey (7423) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 4, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2012 1)Cask handpull, The Crown, Nuneaton. You’d be justified in expecting a beer called ’Goldrush’ to have at least a trace of US hops..but this is Cottage remember, so you’d be wrong.. Heavily buttered hay aroma. Red gold with no head, still condition. Vague shortbread, strawberry jam notes..strong aniseed and Bertie Bassett as it warms. Pretty dismal. 2) The Crown, 18/03/12. Bright and brassy with a white foam. Red apple yeastiness, apricot aroma. Strawberry and apple-like fruit, clean buttered grassiness, always sesame. Good finishing bitterness. Bit out of the box for Cottage. 637313.
