Cask at the Bear (JDW), Maidenhead. Reddish chestnut with a loose cream head; malty caramel aroma; sharply bitter to start, then mellowing - the body has sweet caramel malts but is rather thin; the bitter finish is sustained.

Pretty good. This has got that caramel, Christmas pud taste, but isnt too sweet unlike some of the Christmas offerings. Quite malty and some hops. A touch flat, but enjoyable.

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Stupid name and even more stupid pumpclip, but the beer is excellent: an attractive dark amber with a small white head. Buttery, creamy, rice pudding malt aroma with unspecified baked fruits. Sweet taste with malt, golden syrup and sundry plums, blackcurrants, spices and other goodies. A Christmas masterpiece.

Cask, Pigís Ear BF 2007.
Vinous, rather sour, more of an old ale than a bitter. I doubt it was meant to be like this.
