Cask gravity at Six Bells Woodchurch. Attractive looking clear darkish brown reddish beer with lasting beige head. Oooh yes now that is nice. Earthy fruity and bitter. Just what a strong English bitter should be like. Touch of choc on finish. Really good hedgerow fruits and earthy hops. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
First tasted this at the Paisley Beer Festival in April 2005. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin white head. Pleasant sweet aroma of toffee, short in intensity. Thin but smooth mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a long digestive biscuit flavour which is laced with soft caramel and hedgerow berry notes. Strong note of hop resins gives a dusty, earthy, metallic aftertaste which combines well with the sweet malt. Finish is robust and full bodied with soft sweet caramel and dry milk chocolate notes. An old fashioned style of ESB and highly recommended.

1) Cask handpull at High House Farm. Deep tawny amber slicked with white. Musky, berryish and slightly dank aroma. Marzipan, oak and strawberry hints; vanilla, biscuit and a bit of beefiness. Not bad.
2) Bottle purchased at the farm, filtered but not pasteurised by the looks of it. Bright chestnut pour with a dissipating white head. Musky herbal hop aroma with strong ganja notes, berries, vegetables and weetabix. Slightly dank and herbal in the mouth; marzipan and medicinal cherry edging out the hops, chocolate, berry and caramel hints. Dry hop bite to finish with some northern stoniness. Bit too much alcohol, and the aroma hops get drowned out in the mouth, but a pretty soild bottled bitter.
