Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Gold with a white head. Attractive sweet aroma with a hint of pineapple, a welcome change from the expected lemony citricity. Pleasant sweet taste with a sour edge. Some bitterness. Thought this was pretty good.

A Mes rate. Cask handpull from the Market Porter.
Very clean gold with a good white head. If it was in good condition, it would be 4 but I’m in the Market Porter so the best one can hope for is ok. Fruity but mainly very wheaty and grainy. Like a bowl of cheerio’s. It tastes almost like there is a slight infection. Blend between chalk and lemon with some (thankfully) pleasant hops. Dry and bitter finish brings it back on track. Otherwise dull and boring.
