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

Mini-Cask from B&M, Team Valley, Gateshead. Golden coloured with a massive head of thick foam. It has a sweet malt, sulphur and toffee flavour followed by a very creamy slight sulphur fruity and earthy finish. Pretty good.

teorn88 (6038) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2016
Cask at the King Arms, Greenwich. It pours a clean rich golden color with a small off white head. Aroma is creckery and biscuity, quite mild. Taste is also mildly sweet with notes of bread, biscuit, crackers, caramel. Light bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok

Den gyllene hönan bättre än den vanliga? Svårt att säga men en trevlig men tunn bekantskap.

tdtm82 (1699) - Essex, ENGLAND - JAN 24, 2016
On cask at The Woolpack, Chelmsford, 23/1/2015. None of the beers sampled last night were kept well. This one was a complete mess. Other than a good head and image it was diacytyl. Huge rubber. Loads of burnt tires. Some fruity yeast esters but it was incredibly off. Should not have been on. At least learn to look after beer before running a pub.
