SilkTork (5434) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
JDW Spring Fest - Rochester. Hoppy best bitter with dry ginger cake cake. Nice enough, but a fairly standard English Bitter. Even though decently done, this has been done hundreds of times. You’ve had it before.

Cask gravity at the Oddington Arms, Oddington, Oxon 02-06-07. Pours standard brown colour, malt on nose taste had the briefest of fruity malts that soon diminished to reveal a very malty brew with a pleasant bitterness. Quite a nice beer.
