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.

Cask handpull at The Pheasant Ashford. Clear pale chestnut colour. Lasting creamy head from sparkler. Malty aroma. Lovely rich mid brown malts. I mean its a tasty malty best bitter. Ticks all the boxes with an extra one for being just damn good. The reason I like drinking bitter.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at the Kings Highway, Inverness, 19/10/13.
Clear copper coloured with a good sized off white head.
Nose is thin, light bready malts, hint of fruit.
Taste carries more depth, caramel, fruit, hint of coffee cake (yeah!), biscuit malt.
Medium bodied, smooth on the palate, good conditioning on this number leading to a malt lead subtle bitterness in the closure.
Ok innoffensive offering I guess!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
