[Cask at Back of Beyond, Reading] Amber, negligible off-white head. Moderate carbonation in the glass reduces to a pleasant tingle on the tongue. Lemon aroma. On tasting, a good sweet malt backbone is well balanced against a pleasant lemon & grapefruit bitterness. Very refreshing, very more-ish, a fine bitter. Not sure where the Czech is hiding though!

Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Touch buttery pale malts, some grassy light peppery hop, bit yeasty. A cask pilsner made with an ale yeast, you having a laugh?

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Deep straw with a thin white head; orangey aroma; slightly prickly in the mouth with some orange fruit and spice; a nice long, gentle bitter finish. Very pleasant - judging by previous comments, the brewery have made some improvements this year.

Cask (Market Porter, London)
Gents loo? Toffee-sweet. Malt is OK, but also farts and sulphur.

A Mes rate:
Cask at the Junction Tavern. Cloudy orange. No head. Not in great condition really. Nice colour though. Looks like a cider. Orangey hoppy aroma. Very dull. Same dull standard stuff in the flavour. Very slight bitterness in the finish. The saaz and a slight sourness give it a slightly Belgian character. *yawns*

Apparently this was a czech style pilsner. Thats what the handout said. It did have lager taste but it didn’t ’feel’ like a lager, if you get me. It was clear and fialry dark with some nice head, no carbonation, which is what i think made it not feel like lager. Quaffable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hand pulled at the Bartons Arms, Birmingham. Very tasty and insistent beer. Silken gold, with no head. A certain thickness in the mouth, perhaps stickiness too. Very rich lemon flavour, with envelopes the tongue and coats the throat. Slid straight down, only stopping to engage the mouth in a firm, hoppy, bitter, citric handshake. Good stuff. Very fresh and obviously in great nick.

Cask conditioned at Loddon Brewery. Interesting beer that was just a little too old. Apparently this is fermented at lager temperatures.
