Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Chestnut brown looks with minimal head. Earthy malts, dark fruits and nuts in the nose. Similarly malt led, slightly sweet flavour. Hoppage a bit too restrained. Drinkable but ultimately forgettable.

Hand pulled at the Shakespeare (Lower Temple), Birmingham. Very pleasant ruddy ale, with a surfeit of initial hops, then a swelling of brasso, before a well balanced finish. The lack of finings definitely gives an added flavour, though it also muddies the waters. Nice.
