Cask conditioned Handpump Malt Shovel Northampton. A brown beer with an off-white head and lacing. A reasonably complex and tasty beer. Orangey hops, wood and coffee. Fruits are particularly good in the nose. Coffee shows in the mouth. I’ve not been impressed with Riverside until this one.

Cask at the CASK Pub & Kitchen, London on 1st October 2010. Copper with thin off-white head part lacing. Quite weak flavourwise, thinnish maltiness and citric hop notes, with a short bittersweet finish. Watery texture. Thirstquenching, but I found little flavourwise to engage.

Cask handpump at The Wellington, Birmingham. Amber with a good head. Strong citrus-malt scent. Nice mouthfeel, with a gentle tigle on the tongue. In the mouth, the aromas are orange and some bitter hop, but not lasting.

When we arrived at Wainfleet to visit Batemans Brewery, I had not been able to find any information about where to get beers from this micro, which is located in the same town. So I tried the only non Batemans pub in town and , hey presto, two Riverside beers. Unfortunately, it was served through a heavy sparkler - that seems to be the way they like their beer in these parts - robbing it of any nuances of aroma. Anyway, from what I could tell, this was a respectable, but unexceptional standard session bitter. Cask (handpump), The Angel, Wainfleet, Lincolnshire

Cask conditioned at The Anchor, Alford, Lincs. Amber beer with forced tight sparkler head which dissipated. Light sweetish session bitter with a slight orangey hop in the background. Underplayed and a little watery at the finish.
