Cask@Wheatsheaf, West Bromwich. Golden beer with a small head and good lacing.Taste is of citrus and caramel with a small amount of bittering hops in the finish. Smooth on the palate. A good beer, but nothing specific stands out as excellent, just a good all rounder.

Black Country Beano. Cask in the Great Western. Clear gold beer, tidy white head. Light palate, semi dry with fine carbonation. Mild marmalade hops. Light sweet malt. Light floral touch. Finishes dry with a marmalade bitter aftertaste. Third beer in the same pub that looks and tastes like a Golden, but says on RB it’s a bitter!
