Retro review from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; dark brown colour with slight red tinge pretty boring taste. Insipid!

There’s not much flavour to this Everards brew, but it does have a fair texture.

Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours clear, red-gold with a small, foamy head. Modest toffee, toast and dark fruit in the nose. Sweet toffee flavor with hints of fruit, some frosting, mild cocoa. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet, sticky finish with burnt sugar, some more toffee, light vanilla frosting and French toast. Pretty nice, if a bit basic.

Cask conditioned handpump Eastgate Northampton. A nut brown coloured beer with a whitish head and lace. A malty fruity beer with berry flavours. Sweet malts and a decent body. The aroma needs strength but it’s a reasonably tasty beer.
