Cask at the Old Gaol House (JDW), Winchester. Reddish amber with scummy cream coloured head; aroma of purple fruits; which carry through to the mouth, with a grainy body; then a light bitterness and a doughy finish. Not really anything special about this, but it’s a perfectly drinkable bitter.

A Mes rate: cask at the Hop Farm festival.
Awesome golden brown colour with a thin white head and in excellent condition. A lovely peaty malt aroma with some balancing pineapple sweetness with some good biscuity notes too. Similar flavour with a superb balance of pineapple sweetness and grapefruit bitterness. The green hoppage in the finish is not really my thing but it really doesn’t spoil it. The faint citric sourness is lovely. Straight forward English stuff but drinkable as hell and very enjoyable.

Cask conditinoed @ Guide Dog, Soton. Copper. Slightly thin with a little off yeastiness. A light fairly bland bitter apart from that. Not a great start for the brewer.
