joelw94 (2) - Braintree, Essex, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2016 does not count
Wagon and Horses in Braintree, served on handpump. Very light gold coloured ale, no head. Little discernable aroma. Very light bland taste, maybe a little grass and citrus? Watery mouthfeel, fairly bitter finish. Maybe this cask was past it’s best? Less flavour and aroma than an average mass produced lager.

Cask (handpump) at the Cask Pub & Kitchen on 17 January 2011 - meet the brewer night. Rather a lot a similar beers in the line up for this evening. This was another pale gold beer. Dry but a bit thin. Lots of citrus. Not bad but not as good as some of the others.
