Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 19, 2016
Cask at The Globe, Moorgate, London. This was drunk pretty late into a heavy session in London and my notes are pretty shoddy but I remember it as a deep ruby-brown beer with a diminishing, off-white head that left loose lacing. On the whole it was a tasty bitter with smooth, creamy character and peppery/herbal hop notes.

Sigmund (6645) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2016
Cask halfpint at the Argyll Arms. Copper colour, moderate off-white head. Malty aroma, a little fruit too. The medium dry flavour has some some tingling fruity and earthy hops, on a sufficient malty background with some toffee. Decent bitterness in the finish.

Pleasand treacly aroma. Dark cherrywood colour. Flattish look and palate. Woody dryness, quite wooly bitterness. A simple bitter. Dull, but no technical flaws.
