Cask in the Pack Horse, Derbyshire. Poured hazy ruby with a cream head. A good bitter pine hoppy finish over some good toffee malt notes. A touch of coffee too. A nice drop.

Cask (Cambridge Blue, Cambridge)
Toffee aroma. Whisky woody aroma too, and in the retronasals. Sweet, a touch alcoholic. Fairly mellow malts, but a bit too boozy, in particular considering the strength.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2011
Cask, gravity, at The Pig íní Falcon, St Neots, Cambridgeshire, in the Pigís Winter Festival í11. Amber. Curious aroma suggestive of starched linen.Taste has malt and a distinct sweet fruitiness. Maybe strawberries. Some bitterness. No sign of the liquorice promised in the tasting notes. Howard Town beers are unusual and quirky, but so far I havenít found one I really liked.

chriso (7533) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2009
Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, December 2008. A darker coloured, fairly string bitter with some sharp berry fruit character and a modicum of chalky hops. Good condition. Quite well balanced. Solid without standing out from the crowd.
