Cask, on this occasion in the Black Cat, Chesham. Bright golden amber colour. Solid malty base, lovely hop attack, marmelade, spicy, slightly earthy, not overpowering, moreish bitter. Hops pull through the house yeast flavour, which seems to need the hops, I don’t like say the Golden Best anywhere near as much. One of those beers that no longer tastes as outlandishly flavourful given the increased bitterness and hop quotients used in more recent times, but still retains excellent balance.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2014
Sep 2014 - Cask at the Dove, Hackney. Hazy dark amber / orange, still, decent off-white head leaves some thick lacing. Aroma is sweet toffee, some light citrus. Body is medium, light carbonation, smooth. Taste is smooth toffee malt, semisweet malts are more prominent than hop character, very soft bitterness. A classic, but too malt-heavy for my taste. (3.2)
Nov 2014 - Cask at the Talbot, Dalston. Hazy orange, still, small white head, some thick lacing. Aroma is light malts. Body is medium to light, smooth, low carbonation. Taste is biscuity malt, tangy, soft bitterness. On slightly better form than last time. A dependable bitter. (3.3)

A very fine bitter. Somewhat sharper on the palate than many traditional Yorkshire bitters, and with a good lasting finish. Pleasing caramel colour. One to seek out.
