Cask conditioned handpump Criterion Leicester 09/05/13. A brown beer with a white bubbly head. Something not right here. Quite rubbery throughout. Heavily grainy too. Just an oddity and also served too cold which never helps.

You can tell Iíve been to a pub in England cuz Iím drinking bitter again. So, this isnít too bad at all, biscuit, some bitterness in finish. Better for being in a pub I should imagine clouds that look like fish.

Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Gold to amber with white head. Quite a malty bitter, dry and fairly nutty in character, there is a touch of hazelnut. Some fruitiness too with a damp, earthy hop note. All in all quite reasonable and drinkable.

Cask at the Fulflood Arms, Winchester - 09/09/12.
Slightly hazy light copper in appearance with a thin off-white head.
Aroma of vegetables, pea and ham soup, cabbage, stale farts, sulphur.
You couldnít really escape the aroma in the taste. Twigs, peas, veg - meh!
Medium bodied with low carbonation.
Second beer of the day from Upham, at two different venues, both very poor! Half pint was nowhere near finished between two of us!
