berkshirejohn (5683) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. I really enjoy the bottled version of this, so I was looking forward to trying it from the cask, and I wasn’t disappointed.

An attractive golden amber pour with a loose cream head; toffee aroma; sweet toffee led taste, with some aromatic fruit, and a somewhat oily body; then a dry, but oddly sugary finish. A satisfying malty bitter that’s not too sweet - just as a Yorkshire bitter should be.
