3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Windsor Castle W8. I used to love this when I was younger, pints in the Pickerel, awesome. It’s a very old school bitter, no craft nonsense here, needs to be fresh, balanced and quite malty with just a lingering hop finish. Was it as good as I remembered? Probably not on this occasion, didn’t quite carry that hop finish as well, so a vaguely malty bitter. Oh well. And they had two lots of Tim Taylors on cask so what can you do...

Clear amber pint with a thick creamy head. Sweet malty flavour, very slight almost metallic hint in the aftertaste. Would get a touch sickly after too many but it’s quite nice.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Cask at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) A clear amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, some biscuit and slight apple. Taste of caramel, subtle toffee, slight biscuit, a little yeast, some apple and maybe grape. Light bodied and a smooth texture. A short, biscuity malt bitterness in the finish. Yeah it’s boring buts a pleasant enough session beer. Really smooth too.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask in the Orange Tree, Loughborough. Amber with an off white head. A pretty run of the mill malty bitter. Lacking in flavour and body. Dull but drinkable.
