Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Hazy amber with off white head. The malty body was pretty flat and lifeless, there was a slightly peachy fruity note to it along with a grainy bready note. Tasted quite cheap really. Not great. sm89walt (2069) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 25, 2012
Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Poured an amber-hued brown with a one-finger, mostly lasting soapy off-white head. Biscuity pale malt, grassy English hops and some lightly spicy mid fruit notes to go round. Light to medium body, soft mouthfeel, short bittersweet finish. I noted this at 4% but everyone I can find online puts it down as 3.5%.
