Hamilton Hall Spoons. Cask. Clear deep red - amber beer, small cream colour head. Palate is smooth, very modest fine carbonation. Sweetish malts, little lactose. Light cherry. Touch of candy. Light sweet floralness. Semi dry finish. A light and sweet beer, is it a bitter?

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Malty, dryish, grainy beer, I really didn’t get a feel of the hops used in this, it tasted a little stewed. Not great.

1/3 pint glass, cask, festival real ale option at Penderels Oak. Good looking with a golden-brown coloured body, tiny layer and spotty lacing to the glassware. Malt-fruity throughout. Dry bitter ending. Thin to medium bodied. On par with the style (London, 01.11.2012).

Cask conditioned handpump Cordwainer Northampton 01/11/ A golden to copper coloured beer with a white head and lace. Very light berry fruits throughout. Seems English hopping rather than the selection quoted. Seems dull at first but a pleasant subtlety of flavour comes through and it’s pretty palateable.

Cask handpull at the ledger building jdw. Nice reddy amber coloured pour with a lasting sticky cream head. Aroma is sweet jammy berries, figs, nutty malts, raisin. Flavour is composed of jammy fruit, figgy pudding, hint of liquorice, nutty malts. Palate is semi sweet with decent cask condition. Slightly thin. OK tasty malty beer.
