Cask pour at Special Brews. Pours a nitro like copper brown with tons of foam. Odd compost malt aroma. Flavor is pleasant. Rich malt up front, with a soft bittering compliment finish. A hint of fruit in there. Overall, all flavor is light, but this drinks very nicely. I unique cask offering for my records. Pretty good.

Cask at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe, 16/12/15. Clear golden with a moderate off White covering. Nose is bready, grain, light peach, floral notes, straw, hint of orange. Taste comprises sweetish malt, light caramel and candy, floral notes, light citric peel. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, semi drying close. Ok easy drinking cask affair.

imdownthepub (13227) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 10, 2015
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Another quite sweet beer, there are raspberries somewhere in there, sweet caramelised malts, light and estery. It’s okay.

Cask, on gravity at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol October 2015. Deep amber in colour, with a slight, off-white, head. bready malts, a touch of fruit, nutty sweetness and a moderately bitter finish. Ok.

Towey1989 (1807) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2015
Cask at The Green Dragon, Leek (JDW) A clear deep amber colour with a medium white head. Aroma of twigs, some caramel, slight wet wood, a little dark fruits, subtle apple and earthy hops. Taste of toffee, grain, twigs, nuts, subtle marzipan, slight wood, dark fruits, a little apple and earthy hops. Medium bodied but a chalky texture. A dry, grainy, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A different ESB than normal, tastes really grainy, nutty and twiggy. Got better through the pint but the taste and texture is unappealing.

On cask at the Standing Order. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - toffee and light biscuit. Some citrus too. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light bodied with decent balance. Overall - a solid but unremarkable bitter.
