Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2007
Aug 07 Cask conditioned @ Humble Plumb, Soton. Malty bitter with light whiff of yeast and some fruity hops which turn a bit dusty towards the finish. OK but I wouldn’t really want more than one.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2007
Cask conditioned at The Queens Head, Bakewell, Derbyshire. Amber with white head. The pumpclip says Amber Ale, however this is a pretty standard Best Bitter from the Marstons false Brewery stable. Nothing exciting but good enough 15 miles into a hike.
