jjsint (2251) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2016
Handpull cask from the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. Light brown with a trace of terracotta. Small looseish ring of off-white head. Very little aroma. Some earthy, woody, vinous notes. The malty sweetness is overlaid with a tasty woody astringency. Medium body. It is a fairly average bitter, tasty enough but not one to go out of your way for.

prawlie (1496) - ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Bottle into a pint glass. This tasted a bit odd to me, but its got good body and is a good balance of bitter and soft sweetness. It left a bit of a dry taste in the mouth.
