2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
May 2016 - Cask HP at The Bayswater Arms. As ’Tetleys’. Pale orange, clear, still, small off-white head doesn’t endure. Aroma has an initial touch of sulphur which dies down quickly. Then it’s sugary, flat cola. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is thin cracker malts, some white pepper, white bread, soft bitterness. Overall impression isn’t far off a flat lager. Glad to have tried this classic, as it’s one that I’ve heard many old-timers speak favourably of. Also glad that beer has moved on from this. (2.5)

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tetleys at a good pump enhances a day out, won’t mangle your brain, is refreshing and drinkable. Ale heavies will scorn it, pompous nits, it is what it is, a clubhouse session bitter, good with sandwiches, pork scratchings, watching Leeds Utd. Creamy head that stays as Northerners like, adds to the pleasant mild malty biscuit. Quaff and quaff again, unfancy mass market aimed session bitter, does its modest job very well.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.
