Cask gravity at Reading BF 08. I was amazed that I hadn’t rated this before. Gold with thin beige head. Decent golden bitter. OK malts, ok citrus hops. It’s ok, fine, ok flavours not great but drinable all the same.

Cask at the Turf Tavern, Oxford, 01-06-08 Pours mid -gold with slim white head. Initial taste is a bittersweet crunch, then there is a twiggy, sticky woodland floor sort of taste, dryness spreads across the roof of the mouth and hops put in a good appearance at the end, quite interesting.

Cask at The White Horse with renffisch and tashi. Clear golden amber with a line of white head. Dry hoppy aroma that carries on in the taste but is nicely balanced by biscuity malt. Soft, dry finish that lasts. A good hoppy pint and very sessionable as Mes points out!
