berkshirejohn (5950) - 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.

Cask at the William Stead (JDW), Darlington. Bright gold body. Medium white head with strong retention and excellent lacing. Hops, spice, butterscotch, floral, Syrian Goldings. Bitter with some tang. Dry finish. A good example of a regular British bitter.
