Cask @ Wharf, Manchester. Copper-amber with a small creamy head. It's a mid-malty ale with a medium to high bitterness. Sessionable within its style. tombyars (1744) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - AUG 23, 2017
Tasted this at the Ardrossan Beer Festival on the 22nd July 2017. Cask, gravity dispense. Clear pale chestnut in colour with a thin white head. Malt on the short nose with hints of raisin fruit. Thin resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malt gives a light maltloaf base with initial juicy raisin fruit full in the mouth. Hop prickle leaves a metallic resin tang on the palate which jars on the malt unfortunately. Malty finish leaves a slight raisin fruit note but little else comes through. starts to fade away towards the end as it runs out of ideas. Reminded me of John Smiths Magnet in some ways. A poor session bitter. Theydon_Bois (20425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2017
