[Cask at the Belle Vue, High Wycombe] Amber with a small white head. Light in flavour but with a decent hoppy mouthfeel, this is a decent, crisp easy drinking session bitter with a dry finish. Went down nicely.

Cask conditioned handpump Temple Bar Brighton. An amber to ruby coloured beer with a white bubbly head and lacing. A fruity beer with good berry notes. Aroma is thin but it’s a perfectly pleasant sweet beer with good drinkability.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Amber with no head. A tart, perfumed, insipid bitter, quite difficult to get through. Rather unfortunate.
