Cask @ White Swan, Leeds. Deep amber with a creamy head. Thin textured bitter, quite crisp for it but there’s little taste or flavour to enjoy, and without much bitterness. There’s some fruitiness in its nose.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
August 29, 2013 - hand-pull cask at The Harp (Chandos Place). Beautiful clear and refractive copper with a small frothy/rocky beige head (4-). Smells like a bitter - floral, only somewhat sweet, no alcohol. Taste is weird - a little ugly in its floral bitterness, sort of sweaty, but not horrible. Light, slick, very mild carbonation, quick-finishing, no aftertaste - ehhh.
