Mark Addy, Salford 22 Jan 13. Ultimat rødbrun. Lavt skum. Teppelacing. Forsiktig syrlig aroma. Smaken beskjeden med antydning til søt malt. Litt kjedelig.

Cask hand pump, half pint at Mark Addy, Salford. Back body with deep, ruby highlights. Fragile head-lacing. Smell of dark, semi-sweet malts with a touch of liquorice. Similar taste profile perhaps with emphasis on the liquorice part leading to a malt bitter ending. Fine bodied. Nice (Greater Manchester, 22.01.2013).

Cask handpull, The Rutland Arms, Sheffield, 01/01/13. Except a takeout tin of Punk at midnight, my first beer of 2013. Pitch with a good firm neck of cream. Honey roasted nut, coal smoke nose. Buttered coal flavour; watery blue cheese dabs, celery. Quite watery. Sure there’s way better beers in Sheffield tonight but I didn’t find them. Or the fireworks.
