3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Iíve had this in bottles quite often, but this is a review of a couple of pints from the Craster Arms in Beadnell Northumberland: they were clear amber with a thin fading white head. I always find this quite fruity and resiny with a good hop balance. I have to say the reduced carbonation in the cask version improved the experience for me.

On Cask @ Kellyís Gingernut Pub-Amber pour with a full, tan, creamy head. Flavors of bread dough, some toffee, not much "cask" flavor to it. Ehhhh, nothing special.

Cask in the Lion NW6. Quite a full copper/brown colour, and aromas of fruit. A fruitier bitter with some bitterness on the palate, but feels slightly muddied and flavours donít come through clean. The bottle is a bit better than Iíve ever found on draught.

Cask. Orange amber beer with slight bubbly head. The beer is very much indicative of the pub, both noow owned by Greene King. The Pub was once a classic, a regualr in The national archive of historic pubs, now a sad, fading shell. The beer mirrors this, once saving a struggling brewery now a mish mash of a mid range bitter, a little dry, contains the GK tea like hop note and quite poor. You should be ashamed of yourselves Greene King.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served a copperish-amber color with a small head and ample lacing. Mild aroma that is of malt and sweetness and some grain. I expected a bit more. Taste is a mixture of sweetness and malt with an easy bitterness and dry finish. Fairly moderate body, crisp and quite smooth.
Not quite the beer I remember from the old days when I was working in England, but it was still nice to meet with an old friend so to speak. Sort of middle of the road for the style.
