3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Handpumped @ Ye Olde Cheschire Cheese (Greater London). Slightly hazy amber with a medium mostly lasting beige head and good lacing. Aroma is of caramel, mineral presence and fruity notes, but thereís a little something off that I canít recognize. Taste is also of caramel, fruity notes and mineral presence with a very light bitterness along with, again, something off that I canít recognize. Itís really subtle, but it doesnít take much to hinder low abv beer like a Bitter. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel. Easily drinkable and tasty, but far from the best Bitter because thereís a little something off and itís also a tad bland.

Cask. Looks copper, with a one finger white head. It took a long time to settle. Aromas of bitter hops, toffee and caramel. Taste- quite thin-bodied, lots of bitterness, a fair amount of caramel going on.Solid bitter.

Cask in the Anchor Inn, Guisborough. Amber with a creamy white head. Served over cold, so hard to get too much flavour. Fairly fruity. Some biscuit notes on the finish. Thereís a little sweetness too. Below par.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at the Windsor Castle, Wesminster, 31/10/13.
Clear copper golden with a moderate light beige covering, good lacing ensues.
Nose is thin - light fruit notes, hint of toffee, grain.
Taste comprises toffee, light malt bill, touch of darker fruit, bread dough.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, light bitter notes in the finish.
So so bitter, not unpleasant, just lacks any depth - done on the cheap which is probably why it is relatively speaking!
