Cask 1 Pint, The Moon in the Square, Bournemouth, England, UK.
Bursztynowe piwo z puszystą I trwałą ale niezbyt obfitą pianą oraz słodowym aromatem. W smaku gęste, lekko słodowe i łagodnie karmelowe.

FTA: seasonal bitter. I just can’t pass on an opportunity to enjoy it again and again. One of the first bitters I ever tried (~10 y.ago).

Pours a light clear chestnut with an off white head. The aroma is a nice caramel with a hint of bread. Taste is sweet but a balance of bitterness in the finish.

Towey1989 (1450) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2015
Cask at Potters Bar, Meir Heath (Marston’s) A slightly hazy deep amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of fruity malt, slightly tart apple, caramel and spicy hops. Taste of caramel, nuts, apple, wood, raisin and some spicy hops. Medium bodied but an astringent texture. A tart, spicy apple finish. Quite disappointing, I was expecting more. Just a syrupy strong bitter.

Clear amber beer. White head. Slightly sweet, maybe a touch too much. A bit more malt comes through in the aftertaste to balance it out. I think I prefer the bottle.
