Cask at the Hope Tap, Reading. Clear pale copper with a moderate white head. Lots of orange and lightly roasted malt up front- we’re talking proper marmalade on toast territory here, really getting the toast. There’s a little grapefruit and mango and pine and smoke in the background, but it keeps coming back to that toast. Lovely smooth yet foamy mouthfeel too. Loved this- a strong contender for best beer of the festival. Just beats the Adnams Gunnamatta for me.

Cask conditioned handpump Cuthbert Brodrick Leeds 14/04/14. A golden coloured beer with a tight white head and lace. A nice hoppy beer with good tropical fruits. There is a definite house yeasty note which is a shame. It is nice but could have been better.

4/4/14 Cask pours a deep amber ale with an off-white head that lasted half way down. Aroma, quite a fragrant floral one sweet fruity. Taste clean juicy fruit flavour, oddly appealing soapy element, hoppy, nice session ale.
