Tried at the Lincoln beer festival Venice enough bitter with a slight chocolate hint. Nice enough.

Cask at the Wellington, Birmingham. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is light hop, light citrus. The flavour is moderate bitter with a big refreshing zesty lime citrus, pine needle, hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Lovely and fresh and well drinkable! Lots going on here for sure. Really enjoyed this and IMO this deserves a higher rating.

Cask in The Clarence Hotel, Wallasey, Wirral. With wyzzywyz22. Dark brown with a lasting cream head. Aroma is caramel malts, some fruit. Unfortunately the pub stinks of piss and seaweed. Flavour is more caramel, some nuts. Quite drinkable, wasn’t expecting much but it’s a decent bitter. First beer from this brewery, good work fellas.

Cask at The Welkin, JDW - Liverpool. Pours clear gold with a thick, creamy off-white head. The nose has some doughy malts, grain, hay. Light sweet flavor with soft lemon, bitter hay and grain husks, white bread, slight crunchy leaves. Light bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Grainy bitter finish with more dry, doughy pale malts, dirty hay. Meh. This beer definitely has peers.

Red brown colour. Some fruity tones alike to raisins. Overall a nice, balanced bitter with a long dry, finish.

Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2013
(Cask): Clear copper colour, small off white head. Aroma of bread, malt and a slight fruity character. Taste is predominantly sweet malt with some bread, fruit and earthy notes coming through towards the finish. Not a bad session beer.
