Cask hand pull, £2.75 a pint, Draft House Tower Bridge, That There London, 13/12/15, Unobtrusive cherry stone, almond and thinly dusted charcoal flavour like a burnt Bakewell. Deep ruby with a head- unusual in this town, beige colour. Burnt wood, meek cherry boiled sweet aroma. Lacks finish. Low, not angrily fizzing condition- what a relief. Tastes like GK. Not exciting but not overly bland.

mR_fr0g (7237) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Cask at the Bull brewpub. Clear reddy/ copper coloured pour with a lasting creamy head. Aroma is nice Heather and earthy honey, little candied toffee. Nice layers of detail on the nose with rustic leather and hint of smoke. Flavour is composed of light toffee and honey, lavender and just a whisker of citrus. Nice lacing on the glass. Palate is semi sweet and sessionable with very nice cask condition. A really hood example of the style, this beer is very sessionable and has nuance with every sip. Good cask beer served well is a joyous thing.

ladnewton (1694) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2011
Cask at the newly opened Bull brewpub, Highgate, London on 10th September 2011. Clear amber body and a bubbly offwhite head with little or no lacing. Fruity, spicy aromas. Rich taste blend in liquid - very bitter but with berry fruits and spicy touches. Fruitiness and strong bitter line continue into the aftertaste, carrying well on a fresh and zingy mouthfeel. A good pint.
