Cask at The Roadhouse in Birmingham. I always find the caramel a bit too heavy in this beer. It’s a nice drink but not a session beer for me

Amber brown. No head somewhat hoppy. I think the cask was bad because it tastes somewhat tart, almost sour. Had at the church converted into a bar across from Chichester cathedral.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A malty, chocolate, and perhaps a hint of caramel scent, but subdued. Medium bodied with a lack of carbonation. A unique, but not very satisfying taste. Malt, roast, chocolate, cream, and mild dried fruit, but far too smooth. Absolutely no hop at all. Tastes akin to a water downed chocolate milk.

Very dark with plenty of toffee in the aroma. Taste is balanced by a decent hop character though giving it almost dark fruit flavours. Not great, but better than most beers of this type.

Cask at The Old Hand & Diamond, Coedway on the England/Wales border. Ok, bit more taste than the pint before this but on the whole, medium malts, medium roast, medium fruits, medium taste, generally a mediocre beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
AROMA: chocolate, caramel, hint of licorice, roasty
APPEARANCE: brown, clear, minimal head
TASTE: medium sweetness, lightly bitter
PALATE: light body, thin feel, soft carbonation
OVERALL: aromas are quite faint and the thin palate makes this beer miss the mark.
