Grumbo (525) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2013
Cask handpull at the Keystone, Guildford, Surrey. Deep golden colour with a small white head. Contrasting beer, which, after getting past the somewhat skunky aroma, tasted good. Bitter finish, somewhat ash feel to the texture. Soft carbonation.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
My Bottom Line:
Burnt sugar notes and French toast allusions surf fruity esters in this underhopped Bitter.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the translucent amber.
-Carbonation is very low, lower than the average cask I’ve had too.
-Hop character is nearly non existent, struggling to produce enough leafy bitterness in the finish.
-As a result, the flavour profile is sweetish and drinkability is reduced.

On cask at The Garrick’s Head, Bath.
