Cask at the Bridge, Kingswinford. Pours a hazy amber with a small head. The aroma was of earthy hops and some pine coming through after. Sweet start on the taste with some malt, with a low bitter finish. Had a slightly medicinal and cloying aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Old BA rate - cask)
Poured with a finger of a thick, capped white head. Golden yellow in color. Biscuity yeastiness and some maltiness. Had a hard time picking out any hops. Hops came though in the taste and were more earthy and tea-like in the flavor. Sour dough breadiness with a touch of malt sweetness. Medium MF, coating and a bit oily from the hops. Muted carbonation (cask) Solid drinking, but I wouldn’t say overwhelmingly drinkable. Basic stuff, but not the best example but decent take on the traditional English version of the style

Cask - no wonder. An amber beer with a thin bubbly head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, minerals, straw, and spicy hops, leading to a quite bitter finish.

Cask @ Charlies, Cph.
Pours clear amber with no head. Sweet caramel aroma, light maltiness, but generally rather weak. Low carbonation, fine oily mouthfeel. Flavour is heavy sweet, lots of caramel, light sugar. The finish just about saves it with quite dry hoppiness.
