Cask at Ye Olde London. Pointlessly short review due to a social event. Light orange/yellow. Light body, low carb. Taste - watery, bland, slightly bitter, inoffensive, astringent without having the flavour to back it up. Not great, though this didn’t seem like the type of pub where you’d expect the beer to be in great condition.

Cask pints on 28 Jun 2013 at The RAF Cosford WO and Sgt’s Mess Summer Ball (of all places).
Not bad, remember it being a bit thicker and richer from years ago: this seemed to be a watered down version.
Looked OK: amber/golden brown body with a full off-white cap.
Malts, semi-fruity nose and taste, a decent enough blend but missing deep flavours and oomph.
Moved onto dark Rum and Coke after three pints.
