Pint on draught. Clear golden colour with a good, frothy head that dissipates but leaves a good lacing. Fairly mild aroma with some yeast. Slight sweetness, some roasted malt flavours, a little toast and a moderate bitterness. Not quite balanced enough, needs some more bitterness or some astringency, but a passable session beer.

Cask in the Three Fiddles, Guisborough. Amber with a cream head. The taste is biscuit malt with a little citrus. Not as bad as I remember it being, though still average at best. Some soap.

3/20/2011. On tap. Light amber with a white head. Caramel and citrus notes. Soft carbonation, light flavors with hops toward the finish. A bit bland.

Osprey87 (1958) - WALES - NOV 2, 2014
Cask at the Willow Walk, Victoria. Light orange, slight haze, still, small foamy white head. Aroma has light caramel and stale bread. Body is light, slightly foamy with a touch of carbonation. Taste is white bread baguette, light toffee sweetness, softly bitter. Condition seemed decent enough here. Middle of the road.

On tap at The Red Lion, Gatwick. Pours golden orange with small white head. Caramel malty, bit watery. Light bodied. Can’t see why it’s labeled as IPA.

On tap at a Pub in Eastbourne. I still wonder how that one could have become that popular. It develops nearly no aroma, beside few hoppish moments, and offers no taste. I mean, I could have had some water with alcohol infused instead. Annoying drink.
