Draught (Drapers Arms, Peterborough)
Light orange, small loose head. Simple grainy aroma, light estery fruity component. Very bready grainy taste, wholemeal loaf. Some husky hopping leaves a bitter finish. Sounds good, but actually itís a bit dull. Certainly adequate though.

Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. Straw coloured with a loose white head; sweet grainy aroma; spicy taste, with a sweet grainy body; and a biscuity finish. Satisfying, but not very exciting.

Cask in the Hope Tap, Reading. Light amber with a thick off white head and a moderate, prickly carbonation. Caramel and fruit aroma. Taste is caramel with dry wood, a little lemon and plenty of spice. Moderate bitterness. Not bad actually.

Cask Black Lion Leighton Buzzard. Amber coloured. No head. Sweet on the nose. Fruitcake leading into a short lived subdued bitter aftertaste. Not very exciting but also unpleasant.

BlackHaddock (5189) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - DEC 8, 2013
Hand-pulled half-pint on 23rd Nov in The Old Blenheim, Oxford. Deep golden amber body, minimal head. The nose was mild, some caramel biscuit hints if you sniff hard enough. The taste was also caramel led, though this isnít a sweet beer: itís balanced with subtle hop influences intermingling with those malt molasses. Nothing strong or heavy, just a pleasant tasting beer.

ManVsBeer (6461) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2013
Golden bitter with a lovely smooth feel in the palate. Lightest of malts in the aroma. No real flavour but this is a texture ale. Small thin head.
