Cask, The King’s Head, Leicester. Golden with a white foam. Aromas are funky apple with caramel and biscuit. Lightly nutty with lemon and yeast. Flavours are bittersweet lemon with yeast and some barnyard notes. Base caramel with a peppery finish. Seems different to the bottled version so not sure what condition this is in. Reasonable.

Amber with an airy, modest head. The nose is sweet - lightly toasted malts, apples, some caramel, light acid. The taste is moderately bitter with a dry acidic finish. The palate’s a bit chewy, the body medium. Overall, an OK mediocre bitter.

Aroma is bready malts, some sweet malts and also a nice fruity and floral hoppyness to it. Flavour is citrusy, mildly nectary and also has some grassy bitterness as well as a nice malty body to it. Well balanced and refreshing.

Cask handpull at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Hazy mid brown colour. No head. I looked at this a bit suspiciously as it looks hazy and out of condition. Aroma of some hop and malt. Some biscuit in the mouth. Only slight condition. Some hop on end of the English earthy variety. No real bad flavours just lacks condition. Its a bitter
