Alfies, Winchester. A hop forward session bitter. A little too rasping in the finish for my taste.

On draught at the Wheatsheaf, Shedfield, Hampshire. Aroma is of cereal and has a slightly resinous hint. Really nice orange colour, brilliant appearance, slight head. Exceptional taste of grain, the sweetness immediately becoming very bitter with a peppery background. Great mouthfeel, the bitterness goes on and on, with a very long finish bordering on astringency. Overall an extremely good beer. The bitterness is exceptional and may put some off, but this is one of the best cask beers out there right now.

Amber colour, little in the way of a head. Rich malty aroma with a hopy kick. Perfectly pleasant, well balanced beer with a light bitter finish.

Cask at the Albion, Winchester - 09/09/12.
Mid amber with a small white head that soon cleared to nothing.
Caramel and malt on the nose, slight diacetyl tones.
Flavour follows nose with a little dark fruit in there, again a tad buttery.
Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish.
File under ’W’ for whelmed!

Cask at the Hyde Tavern, Winchester. Bright amber with a tight cream head; orangey fruit aroma; intense orange fruit flavour with a pleasantly sharp bitterness leaving a slightly spicy finish. An excellent standard bitter, certainly not "ordinary".

Cask conditioned at The Black Boy, Winchester. Amber with white head. Proving that this pub can serve a decent beer, but strangely it was right next to another pump with Black Boy bitter, which is the same beer as this!! Hoppy, bitter, lasting session type beer, pretty reasonable, but not for 10p over 3 quid its not.
