Pours two fingers of foamy head on a clear dark straw body.

An awesome brew to have off cask.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Another one I’ve had a few times before but never got around to rating. Last time was in Wycombe, but I didn’t take notes. (3.1) This time it’s in Clapham. Cask. Hazy amber orange, still, small white head, some sparse lacing. Body is medium, low carbonation. Taste has watery squash, touch of pithy citrus skin, soft British noble hop character. Overall, it’s balanced but underflavoured. (3.1) again.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Famed eastern English bitter with a somewhat hazy copper colour, thin but dense creamy head and fruity aroma (lots of apple) with a sulphuric accent, some peat, caramel and dough. Supple palate with nice fruitiness and hoppy bitter finish, very well balanced between fruitiness and hoppiness, as any good bitter should be. Deservedly a classic.

On tap at the Duke of Devonshire, Eastbourne. Classic ale with no surprise. Light brown in its colour with just a bit of hops in the nose. Some nuts combined with a bit of malt and nust in the aftertaste. Nice and classic. Nothing special.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cask at the haymarket. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Aromas are light vinegar, toffee. Taste has some yeasty funk. Maybe not well kept, but I can honestly say I preferred this in the bottle.
