Cask@the avion, aldridge. Dark copper beer with tight medium head and decent lacing. Aroma of malts and caramel. Taste is sweet malts, toffee, caramel and some dark fruits. A little spice is thrown in too. Light on the body. Decent enough, but would expect more from a ESA.

Cask @ The Angel JDW. Woah, Greene King whale watch!! The pour’s deep amber with a tiny head. The nose is spiced fruit cake, ginger powder, some of that distinct GK yeastiness. The taste is plum, brown bread. Acidic red apple tang. General mineral. More yeast. Leather. Dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, actually not terrible. One of GK’s better ones...
