Saturday 27th Oct 2012: local CAMRA surveying trip. The first pub we hit is the only Oakwell Brewery owned place in Shropshire, The Seven Stars, in a hamlet called Cold Hatton (strange pub to have as your only outpost in a county).
My first pint was of this, and I really enjoyed it. Hand-pulled into a UK sleeve, the body was a good brown, deep amber with red hints: on top an off-white head of foaming bubbles that stayed the distance and also left heavy lacing on my glass.
The aroma was malty and semi-sweet, as was the taste. Mild toffee flavours are joined by fruitiness and a nutty note before the dry, bitter finish, in this well balanced brew.
More to this than the Oakwell Senior. omhper (25740) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2005
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. (3.8%) Nut brown. Roasty malt aroma. Remarkably dry with light-medium body. Resiny hops along with roasty malt dominates. Salty, bitter finish. RichardGretton (4785) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2007

’s Head, Leicester. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is dry, malty and hopped and the flavour is dry and plainly bitter. Overall a nice bitter.
Cask @ Akkurat, StockholmMesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2008
Dark amber and a good white head. Matured malt aroma. A bit hars palate, yellow plums in the residual sweetness. Short aftertaste and is missing somewhat in hop flavour.
A Mes rate: Gravicask at the Bricklayers.

Mid brown with a good white head. Very "green" malty aroma with some very slight smokey notes and some nice prickly hops. Nice nutty malt in the mouth with good hoppage and a nice bitter finish. A solid but not particularly exciting bitter.
The Shakespeare’s Head, Leicester. Chesnut half lined with lace. Lightly sulphurous nose with some musty hop reinforcement. Soggy Digestive, milky stillness, definite note of wood. Pleasantly hopped, mellow bitter. But completely unexceptional. fonefan (51072) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2009
Cask (handpump) @ Devonshire Cat, Wellington Street, Devonshire Green, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, England S1 4HG.jamesie1857 (1980) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2012
Clear medium orange amber color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, dusty, fruity, light nutty, moderate hoppy, orange, dusty. Flavor is moderate sweet and bitter with a average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. 
On cask in Litton, Derbyshire - a deep brown Yorkshire style bitter, with a good head on it. Malty aroma, and first taste. Nothing out of the ordinary, but pleasant nonetheless. Rob_D_UK (1366) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 13, 2013
