Copper bodied and creamy head. Sweetness of red fruit, amber malts, English yeast. Interesting taste, very tea like, herbal. Quite tasty. Mixing new and old brewing, but I did enjoy it more than expected or my crude description might reveal. (On tap at the North Bar Leeds)

Wooden cask at Pig’s Ear 2013. It pours clear amber with a small beige head. The nose is wood, varnish, spice, light sulphur and light berry notes. The taste is wood, earth, citrus, sherbet, more wood, burnt toffee and toast with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Not a whole lot going on. So-so.

Cask handull, The Prince of Wales, Hinckley, 05/11/13. Cream-capped coppery pale red. Nose reasonable orange and blackcurrant wine gum. Sourish with redcurrant and orange chocolate, good crushed malted milk biscuit linger. OK but zero US or NZ Pacific character.

Fin (8132) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2013
Cask, handpump at The James Street Tavern, Cowley Rd, Oxford, Monday 11th November 2013. Pours reddy/amber, clear with a slim white head. Quite raspy bitterness but underpinned with a robust malt base and tempered sweetness. Full bodied, fruity but with a bit of caramel, roof of mouth getting a little grapefruity coating. I like this, plenty in here to like but with a good malty base and bitterness. A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov15 3.8
