thejackpacker (379) - East Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2017
Cask at The Anchor, Beer. Distinctincly average ale with very little to talk about but a nice taste of England with a view of the sea in Devon to go with.

Handpull cask at the Gate, Sawbridgeworth. Dark brown with a reddish hue. Fairly clear. A ring of off-white head. Light malty aroma with some blackberry and a slight forest floor suggestion. Taste is also light, so much so that I only really taste my previous beer. Bittersweet with a short finish. I drank loads of this when I lived in Devon pre-RB. Either it doesnt travel well, or the recipe has changed, or my taste has moved on. Its ok but nothing special.

Towey1989 (2566) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear deep golden colour with a very thin white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, slight red berries and subtle spicy orange. Taste of caramel, toasted malts, slight orange, a little spice, a hint of mineral and subtle bready malts. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A short, dry, malty bitterness in the finish. Not a lot going on, very malt dominated with a little bitterness in the finish. Its ok but boring.

Pint on cask at the Rotunda. Pours a somewhat cloudy reddish-brown with a tan head. Malt dominates the aroma and the flavour, not a whole lot else seemed to be going on, bit of sweetness, only a touch of bitterness.

Straight from the cask at the Horseshoe Inn. Pours a rich copper with virtually no head. Aroma is dry with a little spice and toffee. Taste is bitter with a nice caramel malt note. Everything is very subdued, including the strength, which is ideal for a long session.
