Cimbasso (640) - - MAR 16, 2016
On draught at the John Baird, Muswell Hill. Aroma of malt and the colour is a dark copper with a thin white head. Taste is of toffee and berry fruit. Medium better finish, but very slightly sour finish in this instance. Quite drinkable, nonetheless.

thellgren (684) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 29, 2015
pint draught (cask) @ Fountains Abbey, Paddington, London. Amber colour, still, no head, malts and hops. Sounds like typical bitter, this is, however, a bit on the APA side. Since it was poured from cask, the taste is more smooth and fruity than in bottle beers. Quite OK.

Cask (Dobblers, Cambridge)
Fruity hoppy aroma and taste. Sweet smooth palate. Lots of fruity esters, though a bit sweet. All in all a very pleasant English bitter. Went down nice and quickly as I did my best to escape from the pub swiftly...
