On gravity at the Tuckers Maltings Beer festival, Newton Abbot 23/04/10. Copper coloured with a slight, off-white head. Bready malt aroma with a touch of sweetness. Flavour had some hedgerow fruit and a touch of caramel, before a pronounced bitter finish. Ok.

Cask (handpump) at the Great British Beer Festival, Day 1, August 2009. Good on the brewery for taking the effort to send over these rare beers for GBBF but I’m not convinced they handled the journey too well. This one was a diacetyl bomb, full stop. And diacetyl in in a light, low ABV bitter is not a good thing in my book. A little better on the palate than on the nose. Some restrained, slightly ashy malt reminiscent of a light mild. A low hop presence reinforced that impression. Didn’t enjoy this too much.

SilkTork (5109) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2010
Cask@GBBF2009. Diacetyl. Brown. Ugly. Vague toffee. Not good. Beer needn’t be like this.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2009
Cask @ GBBF 09, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.
Clear medium amber color with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, caramel, coffee notes, toffee, light hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. [20090804]
