Cask Conditioned at The Charles Cotton Hotel, Hartington, Derbys. Light brown with bubbly head. This is a light hoppy dry bitter again with lemony floral hop dry notes. I'm finding the Whim Ales to follow this theme and they are well brewed.

Cask (handpump) at the Wilkes Head, Leek. A very handsome beer. Bright golden bronze colour with a modest, but lasting, head. Very crisp and hugely refreshing, with bags of citric hop character. Maybe a bit thin, but it is a session bitter. A good beer served in top condition.

Cask at the Bell Inn, Smalley. Lovely light brown body with lively white head. Good hoppy floral notes, plenty of dry finish, if it wasn’t for the fact that the Bell also serve Whim IPA this would be my regular pint there.

Pint pulled at the Manifold Inn at Hulme End (Peak District), amber in colour with a thick and creamy head. A very hoppy aroma with floral notes. A good combination of hops and malt in the flavour, though a bit sour in the aftertaste.
