Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Faint malt aroma. Pleasant sweet malty taste with a little earth to stop it becoming too intense. Some bitterness. Excellent straightforward bitter of the type I always enjoy.

The Anchor, Burbage. Pale ruby with a creamy foam. Cinder toffee and cheap coffee granule aroma. Pleasant, coffee-dusted, mild-type brew with a mellow roasted finish and Crunchie afters. Like Snecklifter on form, actually a pretty decent beer. Marstons are yet to destroy this far flung outpost of their empire.

Cask at The Buck’s Head in Church Stretton.
Very nice looking russet beer with a thick white head. Hint of malt on the nose, richer mouthfeel than expected and the opposite of thin (not thick, surely?). All in all a pleasant lunch-time pint, approaching a winter warmer.

Cask Conditioned at The Bree Louise, London
Dark amber color; foamy head. The aroma is very light, minty if possible. Ordinary caramel flavor and some darker chocolate, correct bitterness. Smooth and round mouthfeel, but mostly boring.
