Cask at The Market Porter. Pours ruddy copper with a creamy white head. Aroma is spicy/malty. Flavor is spicy, light roast malt and something like woody. Ends like paper/woody/spicy and strangely this is not a bad thing. Is is quite off the common way. After a long, long time, a hint of mint.

Light to medium sweet flavor with good, bouncy bready malts, light toast, brown sugar, faint berries, low bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation; great condition. Balanced finish with more citrusy now but underscored by fundamental, brown bread malts. A very drinkable bitter.

FatPhil (9182) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 28, 2011
Cask (Helsinki Beer Festival 2011)
6 Slightly dull aroma, which is pretty standard for a UK bitter, but not unpleasant.
3 Fairly pleasant caramelly colour.
6 Seems more of a red ale than a typical bitter. As such it’s pretty good, but I’m not so much of a fan of that sub-style.
4 Smooth palate, but maybe a little sticky; carbonation low. Finish has pleasant chocolate and cocoa notes.
12 Aiming perhaps a bit in the caramelly direction, which is unnecessary in a bitter.
