Cask at The George Inn as íThe George Inn Aleí. Clear orange, still, small foamy white head. Aroma is bread, varnish, apple peel. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is light, gluey, biscuity with a soft bitterness. Very plain old-school bitter. Drinkable but not very interesting.

George inn ale pours an amber gold with a malty bready caramel. Typical English ale with a bready figs and fruity flavor. Decent enough but kind of boring.†

Appearance is amber. Aroma isnít particularly interesting. Taste has a decent balance of malts and bitter hops, but Iím not a big cask fan. Overall not the greatest, but not terrible.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Griffin Hotel, Attleborough. Light copper, flat, slightly hazy. The aroma is as uninspiring as the colour... caramel malt, bread, TCP, sulphur. Taste is an improvement - just - with sweet malt and bitter/sour citrus notes. Thin chalky palate. This is pretty sub-par.

Two cask pints in different pubs on the Isle of Man, 10th and 11th April 2015. Basic session bitter with a typical UK blended feel to it. Amber/brown and a decent head on both my hand-pulled pints. Malts lead the way in both the aroma and taste with the hops preventing any real sweetness taking over the brew, semi-bitter finish and pleasant enough even if itís from Greene King.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2014 Sampled on draught at the Red Lion and Sun in Highgate. This is a fairly standard low-ish strength bitter. Copper colour, low carbonation and not much hop taste. Some toffee-ish malts but no complexity of flavours. Slight sulphur taste. Not very memorable.
