A Mes rate: cask at the Ranelagh.
Clean amber gold looks with an off white bubbly Jacobian Ruff. Pleasing and homely, musty old pub carpet snout. Just the right blend of unbrewed malt and dusty old hops. Clean and refreshing flavour. Just the right amount of farmyard funk and superbly quaffable. Slight caramel as with all Hydes beers but where I usually find it too much, here it works well. Slight hints of coconut fit in well. Old school and enjoyable, a proper bitter. One of the best I’ve had from Hydes.

2pt cardboard takeout from The Merchant, Rugby. Honeyish amber pour sniffing mustily. Stinks of hops a good 2hrs after the pour. The weakest but possibly the best of the 10 or so beers I’ve sampled tonight at The Merchant Fest, Rugby. Wet straw, honey, biscuity malt, ammonia. An undeniable waft of bunny hutch. In the nicest sense. Delicate, tea-like hoppiness. Flavour-packed sessions with a moreish malt-hop balance.

Cask (handpulled) at Langty’s, Nottingham. On DeepBlack’s stag crawl. In a day that brough forth a whole host of beer styles, this was a dependable bitter. Nothing fancy, just good plain session stuff.
