Cask (handpulled) at the Babington Arms Derby. Tacky, sickly, aroma. Rather sludgy fruit flavours, bottom of barrel stuff. For all these faults it delivered a half decent sweet malt finish, looks like I may have caught this on a bad day.

George V, Brompton. A lovely soft and darkly malty best bitter with the hops well soaked into the malt. Mmm, very yummy. Long lingering hop soaked malt flavours - chocolate, fruit, tree bark, it’s all here and it all blends well. Enough individual flavours to keep the flavour spotter happy, yet a great drink as well. Awesome.

Cask at County Hotel JDW, Ashford
Reddish ruby colour, plenty of fruity malt with strawberries and raspberries and then bitter hops to balance. Good session beer, but the balance is not quite there but the fruit is nice.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2005 Reddish in colour. Malty with a bit of caramel and fruit, it’s simple but actually quite tasty and an ideal session ale.

maybe a little suprizing this fellow, it seems that the aroma and taste are completly different bar the fact they are both a little malty. I found it hard to find any distint flavours in here though the aroma seemed a little sulphur. Alround a bit of a disapointment as i have heard this brewary does some good beers.

Cask, New Road Inn, Leicester. Red/brown with a cream coloured head. Aromas are sweet and fruity with spices and dry hopping. Flavours are sweet malts with berry fruit, chocolate, toffee and bitter hops on the finish. Not bad.
