Cask@thefoxglove, kirkburton. Amber colour medium head. Little aroma of mild hops. Taste is of bittering hops and a hint of caramel. Average weight in the body. An ok pint.

Dull. Like drinking water. Iced water. Why do pubs insist in chilling beer until they are nearly extinct? Next to the pub was a field and in the field was the third largest horse in England. Again, I was unimpressed. I’ve seen at least two horses that were bigger. I hope tonight’s beer explorations provide more exciting discoveries.

[cask, The White Hart, Bouth] Amber brown pour with a large white head from the sparkler. Slightly nutty aroma, with some caramel sweetness. Grass and hay on the nose too. Flavours are very balanced, there’s some citrus fruit, before the malty, nutty bitter finish comes on. Good stuff [26082012]

In tap at Four Marys in Linlithgow. Pours dark amber to brown with a proportionate head. The nose has resin and some bitterness but not a pleasant aromatic bitterness. The taste is more if the same. The palate is medium bodied and textured but unfortunately the bitterness in the end is like astringent dry malt. Overall, not a fan.

tombyars (1556) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 1, 2012
First tasted this in Coanes, Johnstone in April 1991. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear russet in colour with a thin creamy white head. Slight note of biscuity malt present in the short aroma. Thin but creamy mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a rich digestive biscuit flavour with redcurrant fruit evident. Good prickle of dusty, earthy hops in the bitter aftertaste. Finish is slightly malty with vinous cask notes present. A decent session bitter.

4.0% gold colour with a good head, not much aroma, not much taste (compared to other Jennings beers), slightly bitter.
