I canít walk about in busy public areas. Iím in everyoneís way. I canít work out how fast to walk and end up walking at an inconsistent speed thinking about how Iím placing one foot in front of the other.

Cask @ Back of Beyond. Slightly cloudy, mid - brown. Caramel, immediately overtaken by bitterness, which then doesnít go away. Not what I was expecting, but good. Wonít want another one immediately, though.

8th July 2012
Clear amber beer, tidy off white head. Crispy palate, minerals. Fair amount of malt with a whisper of toffee. Malt cream. Suppressed citrus provides a modicum of balance but this a malt led beer. Itís the freshness and creamy malt that wins the day!
