Cask at the Magpie, Brentford. Deep red-brown with a lacy fine white head, dusty malt on he nose, malty and slightly nutty body, dry-sweet bitter finish, a straightforward ale - and very good.
Cask at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. Sour malty aroma. Ruby chestnut. Deducting a point - whilst the beige head is pretty healthy, it’s pretty blotchy. Sweet. Soft. Saccharine finish. Sugar. Berries. Not too much going on but easy drinking. Was expecting more bitterness but a nice surprise. gegwilson (3803) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2016
