Golden amber and delicious. if you’re looking for a pub i suggest you go to the bulls head in burslem. They know how to treat beer. Fairly easy to quaff. A fine ale.

Cask (handpump) at the Ivy House, Holborn, London, July 2005. Visited this place on a mini crawl with SilkTork after he had seen a positive recommendation in the CAMRA Bloomsbury and Holborn pub guide, which said it stocked interesting beers for the area. Well this certainly was a rare find but whether it was interesting or not was difficult o tell due to the appalling condition it was served in. From what I could tell, it was a vaguely golden coloured bitter. But it was flat, lifeless and vinegary. Judging by the fact that, as far as I could see, we were the only people in the bar that were drinking cask ale, this beer could have been on for weeks longer than it should have been. On the plus side, I did manage to finish my half - just. Maybe I’m being unfair to the brewery but, if they sell their beer to people who don’t know how to keep it, consequences will follow. Will re-rate if I get the chance.
