Cask in the Flower Pot, Derby. A pale golden ale with a small white head. Quite a smooth, oily feel to it. A bit watery tasting at first - all the flavour is in the finish which has lots of grapefruit and a touch of caramel. Decent stuff.

Cask @ Bankers Draft (JDW), Bedford. Yellow gold, little head. Nice aroma: lemony, peppery, Cascade. Taste is less satisfying. Too bitter and sour for what the aroma promises. Not a great balance.
