jjsint (3116) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2014
Cask at the Pilgrims Progress (JDW), Bedford. Copper with a thin white head. Nice natural carbonation. Light aroma of crystal malt, pear drops. I wasn’t prepared for the astringency of the taste: a sour-sweetness, heavy and intense for the ABV. Nice full body and the natural carbonation is spot on. I’ve had this before & not cared for it, but tonight it’s spot on.

Cast at GBBF 2010. A hazy amber beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma has sharp notes of spicy hops combined with light notes of butter. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel, leading to a lightly bitter finish. I think it is a bit off.

Cask gravity at GBBF 2010. Brown with hints of red. Thin white head. Some rich biscuit, some fruit in mouth. It’s quite decent. Like most B&T beers, well made. Fruity and biscuit is good.
