Drunk at Birmingham Beer Festival. This is probably the kind of beer that I’m supposed to hate. I don’t. It’s fine, unexciting. A thin hop veneer that emerges in the fart.

Cask at the Rose Villa Tavern, Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham. Clear brown pour with a bubbly white frothy head. A classic English bitter with a nice malty aroma and lots of chewy malt and bitter in the flavour with a liqourice aftertaste that sets this beer apart from the crowd.

Hand pulled at the Victoria, Birmingham. Very smooth malt , like a cocoa envelope. Not massively flavoured or bitter, but a thin hop veneer, which emerges in the burp. Easy to drink and refreshing. New wave Bitter. Perhaps served a little too cold.

Loads of nice caramel flavour in this, smooth texture. Not usually my kind of beer but this one is very good.
