Cask at New Inn, Great Preston. Pours caramel brown with an off white head. Watery, so so watery, biscuit finish. This is truly shocking, even worse than mass produced keg bitter.

Third of a pint on draft at the Tennants Arms in the Yorkshire Dales. Earthy, dry. A pleasant bitter, and a lot better than I was expecting (or remembered).

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint on tap at The Castle View, Deganwy. Creamy fruity nose, still golden/bronze beer with solid creamy head. Medium body, bitter at first but finishes with a little toffee. There’s a touch of sour fruitiness in there somewhere. Nothing special but good session ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the Roscoe Head, Liverpool. Golden with a thin white head. Just kind of sits there like a dead goldfish. A bit of caramel-toast-malt in the aroma but not much else. Bittersweet taste with the bitter asserting itself in the finish. Thin and lifeless palette. Short finish. Not actively bad but almost completely devoid of personality, like a zombie beer.
