Cask at the Castle, Bedford. Clear, tawny brown with a thin bubbly off-white head. Looks in good condition so we’re off to a good start. Raisin/fig aroma, with some caramel and woody notes. The initial sweet taste shows bitter edges, but ends full and fruity. Satisfying mouthfeel. A very good ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gravity poured during the CAMRA AGM in Norwich on 20 Apr 2013.
Rich dark amber body with a weak off-white head.
The whole beer is malt laden with only a mild hop content: semi-sweet and leaning towards a toffee and caramel flavour, the smell, the same. Slight nutty hints within the taste also.
Medium bodied and easy to drink: nothing spectacular but a fine beer.

Cask (?, Cambridge) - this can’t be the right beer, it had this name, but a very different pump clip
Rich roasty winter warmer. Mellow, and drinkability very high. Very nice. Anna thought it was only worth 3.2, but she should get her own account.
