Cask (gravity) - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Small & loose though lasting bubbly white head, clear golden body. Sherbet lemon hop, pale malt, some apple & lime aromas.

Cheeky half at The Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Opposite the station for anyone ever visiting. Not sure why you would but there you go. Pale yellow gold with a thin white head. Boring. The same kind of beer as they always have on in there. Does my swede in. So many styles of beer and all he ever has is bitters and thin dry hoppy and citrus golden ales like this one. The obligatory hit of grapefruit before a bitter finish. Bah humbug..

Cask. Clear golden body, white head. Aroma of cardboard, citrus, settled maltiness. not so pale and clear lager. Flavour has malts. Some bitterness, but something seems to be wrong. All this cardboard and earthiness reminds me of baltic lagers.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at the Euston Tap. Pours semi-clear yellow with a strong, foamy white head. Mostly hoppy aroma of straw and light cereal. Fairly sweet with some easy bread and straw, hay bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Dry, earth and straw hop finish, with some modest malty sweetness. Nothing wrong here.
