3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at Angel, New Oxford Street. Nice healthy amber pour, thick and well carbonated. Nose is fairly unassuming but appealing in its combination of dry notes and substantial malts. Mouthfeel a bit thinner than needed but the flavors are nicely satisfying, with bright herbal notes giving things a nice liveliness.

Sweet berry aroma, has a hint of this in the taste but is standard stuff in reality.

Completely traditional bitter, easily one of my favourite beers. Classic of the style, but very old fashioned and understandable why some people might not like it. Incredible value for it’s cheap price.

When cost is taken into consideration, this is my choice bitter. Clean, complex for a bitter, and yet everything a bitter should be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good session beer. Pours a lovely amber colour with a nice, but subtle, aroma. I suspect rather too thin to be approaching a great bitter.

Cask Blue Bell Preston. Pours chestnut brown with thick Gillette head. Really takes me back to my first real pint in late 70s. Lovely beer and bargain at £2.20 a pint. Glasgow Real Ale pubs take note.
