Cask from Chiltern Craft Brewery Shop. A nourishing best bitter, pleasant to drink, very nice on the way down, good aftertaste, but you do have to get past that rather odd aroma.

Has a clear dark brown colour. Classic dark bitter. A bit woody. Quite a bitter finish.

AWS9 (609) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2016
Cask. Deep copper-brown pour. Looked just fine, but oddly had a pretty rancid aroma to it, like it had a touch of cleaning formula to it... I was going to think the batch had gone bad, but it didn’t taste too bad going down... has the basic bitter notes - caramel, deep malts, a touch of hops. All such flavours, but a bit ’deeper’ than a usual bitter. Just an odd shame about the aroma?

Aroma: grain and cereal malts, light caramel, light fruitless. Appearance: clear gold, small, frothy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: light bitters continue, watery, light citrus fruits, grain malts again. Overall: fairly standard Bitter, not bad, just lacks complexity, somewhat watery in the palate. Pint at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

Zlotta (1314) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2015
From cask at In de Wildeman. Clear, reddish amber with a thin, fluffy, white head. Sweetish, fruity-malty aroma of honey, caramel and a bit of blackberry. Sweetish, fruity-malty taste of honey, caramel and licorice, followed by a short, slightly bitter finish. Thin to medium body, slightly oily mouthfeel, flat. Okay.

Douberd (4393) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2015
(Redwillow Feckless) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into an english pint, ABV 4.1% Murky orange colour on the body, huge off-white head that builds up after pouring, thick and with average retention. Aroma of yeast, little sourness (infected?) some floral notes and a bit of caramel on the background. Taste has nuts, litlle bit of caramel, faint hop presence, some sour notes too. Something went wrong here. Medium thin body, carbonation on the high side. Not the best I had from Redwillow.
