Erzengel (3552) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - AUG 4, 2014
Cask. Smooth beginning, fresh, hints of roasted nuts, roasted malt, hazelnuts. Easy to drink, fresh, smooth. Slightly dryer and more bitter till the end. Nice and smooth, dry-malty with a nice bitterness remains on the tongue!

Cask @ Bear and Billet, Chester [220314] [From memory as notes lost]
Amber colour, clear, white head. Remember this as a fairly standard session bitter but better than usual. Light caramel malt, soft bitter hops. Finish did have some more hop in it....recall this as a 3.1

foxo82 (709) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 9, 2013
’Country’ #86. Hand pulled at the Bear and Billet, Chester. Dark amber with a small head and a malty, watery taste. Aroma grassy. Finish is too short, the bitterness fleeting, and it’s been served too cold which doesn’t help.

Fairly standard bitter, it’s nice but doesn’t stand out at all, would be good on a session however
