Pint at the Rose and Crown in Reading. Amber brown with short lived bubbly head. Nice dried fruit aroma. Light, bitter, dry and fruity. Refreshing. Could be a decent session ale.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Clear amber pour with a moderately fizzy head that left a lingering foam. Sharp bitter with some refined caramel in balance. Still fizzy on the tongue despite the cask. Well blended. Feels simple, but also cleverly perfect. Quite nice.

Quite a sweet bitter, lots of malt prevalent, slightly cloying. Not bad but not one I’d look out for.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Global Brew. Decided to rate here as it was on tap versus bottle, but not cask either. Pours a bright pale golden color with an OK white head that diminished fairly quickly. Taste was a smooth mouthcoating sweet very pale malt with little hop bitterness and a bready character. Very much like a Boddington’s. Pretty good.

On tap at the vintage, nice place. Slightly darker than pale lager. Nice lacing. Cery little co2 onthe taste buds. Earthy feel to it. Easy going and better than expected. Yes, pretty good! Nice overall beer drinking experience. Creamy mild sizzling thing onthe tongue.
