UPDATED: OCT 1, 2017 Cask at the Running Hare, Ewloe. Thick creamflow head. Slight vanilla. Hard to detect much bitterness through the cream and coldness. In line with expectations. Gave up halfway through and poured a half lemonade into it, which improved it.

Cask. Pours amber with gold lights. Thin white top. The taste is what is known as balanced. One detects bitter hops and toasted malts. Aroma is ever so slightly malt rather than hop. Palate is soft with light carbonation. A session bitter. For a long time I foolishly assumed that this was a sister pub to the Trent Navigation and hence a Navigation pub that had Pedigree et al. as a safety tap for the old guard. But no it’s Marston’s. With a liking for Jennings and Brakspear. Great location and some good live music but the latter eclipse the beer in these craft times. Anyway the bitter is cheap and sessionable.

Towey1989 (3271) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2016
Cask at The Cattle Market, Leek (Marstons) A clear amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of caramel, fruits, slight biscuit and some earthy, grassy hops. Taste is similar of caramel, fruits, slight biscuit, subtle mineral and some earthy, grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, dry, earthy hop bitterness in the finish. A extremely simple, bland bitter. It’s ok for a session beer.

Cask @ The Beehive, LGW

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of fruits, bready malts and earthy notes. Taste is watery, smooth and mildly crisp with some maltiness and grassy notes. Finish is smooth and easygoing with hints of malts. Quite generic English bitter
