Cask (Bell & Crown, Canterbury)
Slightly mashy aroma. Quite fruity, almost citrussy retronasals. Rich palate, full, soft carbonation. Yup, definitely fruity in the mouth. Sweet, a bit touch caramelly. Nice roast, touch of wood. Pretty tasty rich ale.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hand pulled at the Old Contemptibles, Birmingham. Ooh, this was disappointing. Over tart, with a bundle of my least favourite UK cask characteristics: sickly malt, sour tinges in all the wrong places etc. Tastes far too strong, even though it isn’t.
