Cask at The New Bridge, Newcastle. Hadn’t realised this was a pseudonym for the Best. Clear amber pour decent white head and lacing. Malty aromas, toffee malty taste. Sweet finish, thin. Not very interesting bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at Stalybridge Buffet Bar October 20, 2013 - Not the most inspiring pint, looked good with its perfectly clear amber body, and pillowy white top, but underneath it was just bland. The nose had a soft malty character to it, a bit of sweet caramel, but the taste was watery with not much interest in it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at the Golden Lion, Osmotherley, 04/10/13.
Clear copper golden with a good sized off white head.
Nose is light caramel, bready malt, light fruit, a little thin in aroma but what there is carries pleasant notes.
Taste carries a touch more depth, caramel, fruit notes, bread dough.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, light bitter notes in the finale.

Cask conditioned handpump Veritas Leeds 06/02/13. A copper coloured beer with a white head and lace. Very plain clean and harmless but therefore a little dull. Some biscuity notes. Citrus if you search for it. certainly drinkable but for some reason I expected more.
