Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, day 3 on 2 December 2010. Clear amber colour. A pretty respectable strong bitter, if rather straightforward. Nothing unpleasant here. A bit of caramel / toffee sweetness. Easy drinking. A bit short of oomph for 5.2%.

Pigs Ear. Hazy amber beer, no head. Semi sweet malt. Some tangy sourness. Standard stuff but balanced and tasty.
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford. Amber with a small white head. Sweet slightly grainy malt aroma. taste is full, rich and malty with a pear-like sourness and a sharp, peppery bitter finish. A really good tasty beer: exactly what an English bitter should be like. trapez (1563) - Hilleroed, DENMARK - FEB 17, 2009

Cask @ The Black Bull, Whitechapel. Pale amber with a thin white head. Basically, sweet toffee and appley malt, it’s like a liquified toffee apple. They might be good at the fairground, on a stick, but not in my beer glass. It’s only saving grace is the surprisingly full mouthfeel. I was slightly generous in the numbers due to my sweet tooth and it’s pure novelty value but honestly it’s far from good. maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2011 Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A copper coloured beer with a sweet malty aroma and taste. There were fruits noted in the taste but these seemed a bit unbalanced. An odd beer which I couldn’t get to grips with. Score 2.8
Subsequent rating scored 3.3. Average becomes 3.0
