Had this on tap in a pub, a decent bitter beer, dark appearance, bitter isn’t one of my favorite types, but decent in its own right

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask-conditioned. Fruity aroma and some earthiness. Medium sweetness and quite low bitterness. Odd nutty kind of astringent flavour. Unexceptional but easy drinking session beer. It often tastes stale on cask as there is nowhere for the staleness to hide.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask, The Cedars, Leicester. Amber with a small dense off-white head. Aromas are sweet toffee malts with caramel, sulphur and some dry hops. Flavours are sweet light malts with caramel and hints of fruit. Dry on the finish with a chalky aftertaste. Thin, unimpressive and definately not an IPA.

Gravity cask @ Red Lion, Stodmarsh, Kent. It’s alright. What else is there to say? Mid brown, with some hops and some malt on nose, ok in mouth if slightly thin, with not a lot of aftertaste, but some hop bitterness. Nothing exceptional

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer number 1 in the great Ayr/ Glasgow pub crawl. Cask at the Old Racecourse hotel, Ayr. Really quite bland. Aroma slightly sulphurous, caramelly, hint of hop resin. Pretty bland, finish okay. Just not very exciting.

Hearty, not hoppy. Best way to describe it. Somewhat exceptionally bitter. I suppose goes well with beef, but I’d rather something more rounded. A decent beer all the same. At the Hobgoblin, High St., Canterbury, England.

Down at the local soccer club. Probably not brilliantly kept. Looked pretty nice, but weak in all other respects: flavour, aroma, strength, bitterness... just nothing there... oh yeah, and the team lost.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask@The Cricketers, Richmond, London. Quite a flat dull mouthfeel, almost watery texture. Grainy/malty, sweetish toffee-ish flavours, some hop tang . Really damp and boring. Oh, yeah, this isn’t an IPA
