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. There’s a little sweetness too. Below par.

Cask at Sam Smiths The Cock Tavern, London. Pours an amber colour with a creamy white head. Aroma is subtle with a light maltiness. Light to medium body, mild carbonation. Sweet caramel ice cream, cakey. OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (17224) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2013
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!

Mid to dark brown. A bit cloudy. Taste is malty and astringent. Slightly musty. An old-fashioned English bitter. Good, not great.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2013 Had at the brewery tap Angel and White Horse (brewery tap in Tadcaster). From their own-made wooden barrel. The aroma and flavors are essential beer, beer in its prototype, worty and luscious, clean, woody, and sexy. Why and how its ratings so low I do not understand! Update: had it in Durham. The beer is just as fab but not as fresh as the brewery. So do yourself a favor and drink this from the font--it’s truly an amazing experience sitting out there with the horses and all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 #3 - A chest-nutty, and slightly fruity bitter. It is very refreshing, perfect bitter.

Nothing special. Dark but little bitterness and no aroma. Nice and mild at least. Went for a jog after this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
