Davros IX (93) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2017
Cask at the RIsing Sun. A standard northern English bitter with a creamy mouthfeel, plenty of malt and a litte bit of bitter hops. There was also a rather strange sharpness that meant I would not have had a second pint.

Holmen1 (5499) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2017
Fra hndpumpe p The Champion (Wells Street, London): vakker dyprdlig kobber med tett skum som holder flge til siste drpe. Meget cremet og blt munnflelse med balansert og myk bitterhet fra frste til siste slurk. En klassisk, velkomponert bitter med stor smaksrikdom og eksepsjonell drikkbarhet. Litt maltsdme mot slutten gir en perfekt avrunding.

Cask at Ye Olde Chesire Cheese. A very standard bitter. Not bad but nothing spectacular either.

Cask at the Cittie of Yorke, High Holborn, London. Pours an attractive clear copper colour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, malt, slightly nutty. Medium sweetness and bitterness. Quite light bodied, soft carbonation. A very average bitter, was hoping for better.

Draft at the Princess Louise. Clear, light amber with creamy head. Malty aroma and taste, Just a hint of sourness. Nice consistency, but a bit let down. Was hoping for better.

Antzrhere (170) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2016
On tap at Samuel Smiths two pubs in Blackpool. Pours tan to brown. Taste of oak, malt, caramel and maybe a touch of vanilla. A good mouth feel. While a very typical Yorkshire bitter this is an exceptionally rounded beer with a great balance of bitterness to balance the malt sweetness. Probably one of o Sam Smiths best

badhack (550) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Dark amber, cask poured so low carbonation and cool/room temperature. Malty, caramel. Bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel and the finish was a bit astringent which highlighted the hops.
