Cask conditioned - handpump - Shakespeares Head - Leicester. An amber coloured beer with a heavily sparkled creamy off white coloured head and tons of lacing. The aroma is standard balanced bitter and malt notes as is the taste. Completely decent and drinkable if not Earth shattering, and again ridiculoucly cheap.

Dark amber and a good white head. Matured malt aroma. A bit hars palate, yellow plums in the residual sweetness. Short aftertaste and is missing somewhat in hop flavour.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask Conditioned at The Punch Bowl, Warwick. Mid brown beer, no head (unusual for a yorkshire bitter, could have been the glass it was served in). Not to be confused with Barnsley Bitter from Barnsley Brewery, though it confused me! A malty sourish bitter, quite nasal and astringent. Ok once you are into it but not the easiest to love.
