Towey1989 (1820) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2016
Cask at The Arnold Machin, Newcastle-Under-Lyme (JDW) A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, some hedgerow fruits, slight bready malt, a little orange and subtle spicy hops. Taste of hedgerow fruits, some orange, slight nuts, a little yeast and subtle spicy hops. Light bodied but a watery texture. A dry, slightly sulphuric, spicy hop bitterness in the finish. A below average best bitter, potentially decent flavours but ruined by the finish and the texture.

BlackHaddock (6351) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2016
24th March 2016 at a Shrewsbury Wetherspoons. Cask third of a pint. Clear amber colour with a head that gave some good lacing. Sadly I thought the beer a little bland in nature, some sweetness and light fruity flavours within, but weak throughout in body and taste,

The_Osprey (6354) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2016
Cask, handpull, at Sir John Oldcastle, Farringdon. As ’Pheasantry BB Best Bitter’, 3.8%. Dirty woody orange, clear, still, small but perfectly formed off-white head, full lacing. Aroma is toast with jam. Body is smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is unexpectedly intense fruit with green Starburst sweets, guava, straw-like malt backbone, soft bitterness. Drinkability is through the roof. Pretty impressive.
