worldbeertaste (1608) - - OCT 22, 2012
Pale orange amber with a creamy, lasting, lacy off-white head. Smells of toadted malt, light fruits and hops. Boring. Medium oily body. Tastes of toasted malt, caramel and light bitter hoppy FInish. Boring and uninteresting.

In The Millstone, Macclesfield. Awful service. What they do is serve the loudest and rudest first and will ignore you unless you shout at them. Odd way to run a bar. Aroma has some malts and a not unpleasant bleachy aroma. Some mild bitterness, hops, citrus.

Cask in the Manifold Hotel, Derbyshire. Exceptionally dull, bland and watery. To me this was like a lager without the bubbles. A beer for people who donít like beer.

Cask at the Black Dog Vauxhall. Short review at work do. Light orange/yellow with a small bubbly head. Still. Smell - mild orangey hops. Body is medium to light, low carbonation, smooth, watery. Taste - mostly water, some toffee, mild bitterness in the finish. Even though itís watery, I quite enjoyed it. Very drinkable and pleasant.

Pours slightly hazy blond, white head. Smell fluffy sweet honey. Taste mild. Bit fruity and honey on the after taste. Light and easy drinking. Solid session beer.

On cask @ the Black Swan near Penrith. Pours amber with a decent head. The nose has apple and toffee notes. More of the same on the taste. The palate lacks that nice crunchy biscuit texture I like in an English bitter. It is a bit ordinary, Iím afraid.
