Cask in the Anchor, Cambridge. Ruddy brown colour, white head. Malty strong ale, feels quite alcoholic, fruity, malts, hint of dishwater but much nicer than the lower ABV Greene King rubbish. Booze is a bit in your face. Actually fairly pleasant.

A sweet strong ale with a naked alcohol astringency. A good pint is something special. Not a session bitter, it feels stronger than 5%.

Cask pour at Dandelion Pub, Philly. Clear light amber pour. Soft Fuggles and crystal malts in the nose, understated with some herbal notes too. Thin bodied, low viscosity for sure. Taste is a bit more floral and fruity than the nose would suggest, but still devolves mostly onto pale malts and tea-like bitterness. Pretty average.
