Red Lion Pub in Wendover -- Wonderful, a Friday night, a crowded pub, my last night in England, finally feeling good after a horrible cold, the kids are at home--nice. Oh yea, the beer was pretty good too. I didn’t take notes at the time, but the beer was yeasty with some citrus feel. Good pub brew and good times.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2010 Cask conditioned - handpump - Wig & Pen, Northampton. A light amber coloured beer with an off white head and lacing. The aroma is pretty thin, but decent enough. Light in taste but pretty nicely balanced. Some slightly sweet floral notes. Quite a safe bitter but certainly drinkable. Score 2.9
Subsequent rating scored 2.8. Score unchanged

Cask. Smooth, light ale, not much of a body, but it has a pleasant hoppy aftertaste. there is a hint of fruit - ripe apples - in there somewhere.

Clear deep golden pour. Thick, nitro-like sparkler’s head. Timid nose frankly, limited to grainy cereals. In mouth, more hops manage to chime in, but they’re really only herbal and simplistic while the malts dominate with strawy and bready notes. Soft creamy mouthfeel.
