3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Woodman, Durham, £2.90/pint.
Looked great with copper but crystal clear appearance with lasting white head. Malty, slightly sugary biscuit aroma that carries through into a smooth palate with caramel and ginger malts well balances with mid-length dry finish. Very good.
As a side note I have not yet had a bad pint at this pub under their new ownership. All the ales have been superbly conditioned.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: caramel malts, bread and cereals, fruity, some straw. Appearance: hazy gold, small, frothy, white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: sweets intensify, very malty, caramel, bread, soft carbonation, light body, slightly dry finish. Overall: decent Golden Ale, maybe a bit on the sweet side, but I quite liked it. Pint at the Three Tuns, Marylebone.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Looks like a typical cask bitter, but with a tighter, almost creamy head. Smells like a classic leafy bitter - some nice dry undergrowthy hops, some almost perfumey aspects too. Tastes similar, but is a bit less interesting. Just simple slightly sweet malts. Soft palate, carbonation low. Easy lunchtime or session bitter.

Cask @ Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber/yellow, very clear. Faint scent of honey with a bit of orange and biscuit. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish, simple but clean and wonderfully refreshing. More than the sum of its parts.
