Cask - The Duke of Wellington, Norwich. Dark yellow with a bubbly off-white head & some lacing. Light, toasty, caramel malts & lemony, grassy hop aromas. A drop of strawberry comes through towards the end. Very mild initial toffee flavours up front giving way to earthy malts & leafy, grassy, pithy hops with a mild tang. Some carbonation, mostly soft on a light-medium body with a lingering finish.

Cask, Kings Head, Carlisle. Stunning pale ale. Not as dry as the pumpclip would suggest though. Lovely soft, yeasty, doughy smell permeates throughout. Fruity, hoppy, malty, superb.

Cask handpump at The Pilgrim, Liverpool, 29-11-08. Pours pale golden in colour with a white foamy head, appearance is crystal clear in fact. Some shallow but soft vanilla comes to the fore along with a creamy but dryness on the palate. A quite tasty beer that finishes with a dry and bitter swipe. A6 A5 F7 P4 OV14
