The Merry Monk, Kirton. Clear amber in colour with a large, creamy white head. Subdued floral and citric nose along with some general fruity malts. Quite sweet on the tongue; a fruity maltiness with butterscotch flavours and a bitter citrusy finish. Smooth and easy on the palate; refreshing and highly quaffable as a session beer.

Cockermouth he he he. Can’t remember much about this as I was very very drunk but remember thinking thank god I don’t have to have Carling. It was ok, could have been worse but wasn’t great. Gold with a thick white head. Drinkable enough but nothing to get jimmy out over.

[Cask at Burnt Oak, Milton Keynes] A pale orangey brown bitter with a slight white head. Decent enough earthy hops, some malt, a moderate bitterness. Overall enjoyable enough, easy to drink, but an average, and fairly forgettable bitter.

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.

Cask @ some Soho pub, London.
Pours light coppery amber with a small, white film head. Aroma is pretty hoppy, grassy, mild caramel and a lot of cookie-dough. Fine mouthfeel. Flavour is rounded, nice bitterness, subdued pine and grass with a little caramel.

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.
