Cask handpump at The Joseph Else, Nottingham, Saturday 9th April 2016 with dad. Pours dark murky brown with a creamy textured off-white head. Fairly bland and thin and watery offering. There is barely any taste of note all, a little bitterness perhaps but bland, bland, bland. A5 A3 T5 P2 Ov10 2.5

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask @ Barum Top Inn, Halifax. Crisp and refreshing copper coloured lager with a creamy head. It’s low with its malty character, but very palatable as a session Beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned handpump Swan & Rushes Leicester 21/11/12. A dark brown coloured beer with an off-white wisp of head. Sweet and malty. Bready and caramel notes. Presumably German hops (I see from the comm desc there’s French too). I guess it’s not lagered but does have vienna characters together with husky elements. Reasonably good.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask conditioned at Far From the Madding Crowd, Oxford. Dark Amber with white head. Quite a fruity, tartish beer but with a fairly heavy caramelisation, toffee character, some bitterness, some grape like notes. Not really to my taste.
