jjsint (2822) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2014
Cask at the Clarendon Arms, Cambridge. Clear, light honey brown. Very little head. Scent of nuts, toast, bit of wood shavings. Taste is a crisp, clean bitter with a slight hoppy bite in the finish. Body is fuller than would be expected. This is a very very good basic bitter. Surprisingly good. And thats my 46 English counties, done in style.

Bottle split at the Waterfront Inn, Shanklin IOW during the Jolly Dat 24/08/14. Clear golden with moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is on the thin side, corn bread, cereals, pale malt, grain. The taste picks up the pace a little with light vanilla, faint hops, biscuit, mellow fruits. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light bitterings. Ok bitter.
