Keg at the Three Tuns, Bristol. Pleasant enough. Too sweet for me though. Quite thick (which is fine).

Keg at the brewpub - London. Pours perfectly clear copper with a lasting, off-white cream cap. Some floral hops in the nose, hints of citrus and grass. Light to medium sweet flavor with some bready malts, toasty grass, grain, hints of pine and ripe orange. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly earthy bitterness to finish, some grainy and bready malts, orange rind, grass. So so.

Keg at The Lamb Brewery. It pours amber with a small white head. The nose is wood, grain, some farmyard and not much else. The taste is wood, varnish, resin, leaf and brown bread with a pretty bitter finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Decent bitterness, but no real character to it. Ok.
