Cask in the Fox Inn, Guisborough. This was actually surprisingly good. The were some good chocolatey malt flavours and although it was a bit watery I was quite happy to sink a couple of pints.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Dark brown with scummy head. Sweetish caramel flavours right from the start, fruity, toffee with a background damp wet carpet note. Slightly muddy, but some roastiness. Improves through the pint. Ok in the end.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 1/2 at the Tilley Stone Gateshead. I drank countless bottles of the Vaux version of this in my youth in Sunderland. Copper brown with an off white head. Blue fruit and caramel aroma, and flavours of toffee and juicy raisins. Has some brown ale richness in the palate, and a pleasant astrigency in the finish 10/05/2013 Pint at the Schooner, Gateshead. Perhaps better kept, delicious, richer flavour.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Festival ale, from cask, one-third pint at Penderels Oak. Deep, dark brown coloured body. Disappearing layer, spotty lacing. Mild malty aroma, hints of dried fruits. Liquorice malts offset by dusty hops in flavour. Dry bitter endnotes. Middle of the road (London, 01.11.2012).
