Fresh malty notes in the aroma - not the most pleasant but often the best cask beers seem to have that sort of aroma. Not too strong. Slightly weak mouthfeel. Appearance is a little bit cloudy. But, the cask really rewards this type of beer, and the freshness comes through. Quite refreshing, and slightly sharp for a bitter, but otherwise fairly typical bitter.

One of those good old classic English bitters, from a brewery which still works with copper brewing kettles and wooden barrels, at least at the time when I tasted this (2006). Brownish copper-coloured ale with thin, creamy head as expected from an English cask bitter, very malty aroma of caramel and walnuts, sourish touch, delicate aromatic hops. Rounded, supple palate, vague sweetishness, lots of buttermilk-like diacetyl, sourish accent, dried fruits, ending in a thirst-quenching hop bitterness. Stereotypical alright, but at least very decent.

I used to live in the South West, and I’ve had more bad pints of this beer than you’ve had hot dinners mate. Last time I had this was Newcastle, 2011. But now I’m rating it in perfect condition. Cask at the Boot, St Albans. Light brown with a wispy head of natural carbonation. Aroma is sulphurous, nutty, and biscuity sweet. Taste brings out the astringency and the sweetness simultaneously. Sulphurous bitter finish. Not great, not even good, but certainly not bad. Seek it out in a place that knows how to keep it.
