A Mes rate: Cask at Baker St ’Sporks.hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2008
Clean dark brown with a thin but stable light beige head and lots of lace. Creamy malt aroma with some slight dusty hoppage. Really pleasant caramel malt with plenty of fruit and nut and some balancing bitter hops in the finish. Lingering earth and bitterness. Not bad.
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Rich buttery aroma. Taste is gentle, sweet caramel malt, pleasantly balanced with the mid bitter finish.

Score is an average of the two.
Half pint pulled at The Market Porter at London Bridge (London), a clear brown with a bubbly off-white head. A good flowery malt aroma with just a touch of spice. A smooth palate, sweetish at first, but then more biscuity malt flavours come through with a drying finish. Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2007
August 11. 2005 in Tail Race Inn in Kinlochleven, Scotland, draught. It’s a very dark brown beer with a nice and lasting head. The aroma is malty with hints of fruit. The flavour isn’t as malty or sweet as I had expected, but it does have light sweetness and clear notes of roasted malt, caramel, fruit, berries and licorice and a nice bitter finish.
