Cask - The Bell Hotel (JDW), Norwich. Medium sized creamy beige head with great retention & uniform lace on a murky chestnut body. A delicate floral note throughout. Decent maltiness going on with mid-fruits & biscuit, some roasty bitterness combined with a fruity, lightly citric hop note. light to medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, lingering finish. tombyars (1724) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 24, 2012
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) in June 2008. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear copper red in colour with a thin buff tan head. Strong notes of burnt brown sugar evident in the long sweet aroma. Smooth creamy texture to the wonderful mouthfeel and good lacing. Complex malts give a rich robust maltloaf base with fudge, figs and molasses flavours present. Sparkling hard water salty tang with a hint of spicy hop resins in the short bitter aftertaste. Finish is very malty with sweet toffee and vinous fruit notes. Resembled Belhaven 80/ in some respects. This is a decent session bitter and well recommended. justm (164) - Essex, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2012
Cask at the Blue Boar, Billericay, Essex. Pours a dark copper with hints of deep orange. A tightly carbonated off-white head makes this a very good-looking and appetising pint, however it doesn’t quite deliver. A light fruity malt aroma has a jarring burnt sugar harshness that over-rides it. It is quite thin on the palate and dis-appointingly a little flat. The taste has little touches of burnt sugar and malty caramel washing over the tongue carried by a sugary water. There is the faintest hint of dry malty bitterness in the aftertaste, mainly on the tip of the tongue but this is only fleeting and all too soon only a merest whisper remains. berkshirejohn (6588) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2012
Cask at the Old Gaolhouse (JDW), Winchester. Deep copper with a loose cream head; bubblegum aroma; distinct taste of "Fruit Salad" sweets to start, then a fresh, gentle bitterness; before a cinder toffee finish. Not bad.
