jjsint (2377) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2016
Cask at the Cambridge Winter Ales Festival 2016. Mid-brown, watery-looking and flat. Used coffee grounds and cereal in the scent,sweet taste with some bitter-sour nearer to the finish. Body is weak, it tastes a bit like beer-flavoured water. There are some decent flavours in here but when all is said and done, it’s not my kind of drink.

Cask at the Pembury Tavern - London. Pours clear chestnut-brown with a frothy light khaki head. The aroma golds toasty bread, a bit of toffee, grains. Light-medium sweet flavor with nicely rounded toffee notes, suggestions pf butterscotch and creamy caramel, nice brown bread, mellow dried fruits, berries. Light bodied with fine carbonation; excellent condition. Nicely balanced with further dried berries, touches of leather, more toffee and brown bread. Well rounded with good depth for the ABV. Outstanding mild.
