Cask at Dean Swift. It pours hazy amber, with a thin off-white head. The nose is nut, caramel, wood and toffee. The taste is wood, nut, leather, leaf, dust, light smoke and caramel, with a decent dry-bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. Not bad, just unexciting.

Pint at the Old Manor in Bracknell. Small but attractive head over an amber brown beer. Smooth, bitter and slighlty oakey, with a little hops. Aroma is hoppy and a touch fruity. Its quite reasonable and the sweetness takes precedence over the bitter after a while. Quite a decents Berkshire LocAle.

Cask (Harp, RBESG Friday)
Beautifully rich bitter. Malty body. Great full beer. Doesn’t burst outside the bitter formula, but the oak aged aspects give a lovely woodiness to it. Beautifully subtle hops, clearly there, but not punching you in the face. Subtlety done very well.
