DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Cask at the princess louise. Alround rating: Possibly my first ever bitter direct from a wooden cask. Earthy english malts and fleafy bitter hop, a bit unexciting and just like a sessionable chap that i may have had a few thousand of by now.

Herkybird (21) - YORK, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2009
This is a mid brown, malty ale with very little hop aroma but a pleasant flavour and full body which is usually very consistent. Add to the fact that it sells for £1.40 a pint in every Sam’s house around York (Jul 09) and it tastes even better. Good beer, exceptional value. However, it is an acquired taste for some. Beware next morning if you overdo it!!
