UPDATED: OCT 25, 2009 Wen’t down smooth in a ridiculous Over-Sized Guinness hat on March 17. Malty and caramel’y.Dusty and fruity esters ...but that dusty yeast thing is way OTT.Like dust from an old school book. I liked the bottled version more.Sacrilege ?Whatever man.

(cask at the Greyhound, Diss) Dark red bown with a very white head, although it disappeared quickly. Red fruit smell blended nicely with some hops. Nothing spectacular thoguh. First sip was really nice subtle fruit taste - cherries with a hint of biscuit malt rounded out with a good deal of sweetness. Got a bit bland after that but ok.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2010 At the Abbey. Clear dark copper-red with thick tight tan head that is nice and natural looking and leaves scant lacing. Caramel malt aromas are fresh and fruity: apples and pears. Nice mouthfeel. Good bready flavors with just a hint of diacetyl that is ever so slight and well-integrated. Overall a generic brew but drinkable, and much nicer than it is in the bottle: the cask version lets the flavors shine.
revisited @ The Hobgoblin, Bath. Red-brown with thick cask head. Aroma has buttery biscuity malts. Palate is a bit oily. Good fruitiness in the body. Bready finish. Not bad altogether--5-4-6-3-12

Its a deep and heavy beer, especially considering its only 4.5%. I can stomach the odd one, but really have this in a session and its hard to finish. Something unpleasant about this beer.

From cask. Pours clear and golden amber with a lacing small and off-white head. Spiced and slight herbal with a base of roasted malt in the aroma. Butterish and dry with a distinct malty base flavour. Ends medium dry and bitter.

Handpulled cask at JDW Watford. Dark chestnut with lifeless head. Notes of toffee and caramel with understated earthy hop bitterness. I’ve never rated Wychwood much and this won’t improve things.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The White Lion, Tamuff. Chestnut with a tight beige collar. Sulphur, caramel, slightly sourish stone fruit, a faint dusting of choc. Mellow, mild-like, dunkelish stillness. Alright, but a bit drab. Could use a richer or roastier depth of flavours.
