Cask @ Anchor Tap, London, 21/07/17. Pours orange with a good, white head. Aroma is strong with flower. Taste is caramel, strong flower, dry. Some fruit candy(?), some fruitiness. Nuts and flowers in the strong finish. Very nice.

A beer with a beautiful colour and a smooth head. It has a full flavour with that bit of extra depth that oak casks give. Drank three pints in the Chandos in central London last night and really enjoyed it.

Dispensed into halfpints from actual oak cask at Nellies - White Horse Inn in Beverley, East Yorkshire. A spectacle to watch this settle into something murky and sparkling, between franconian Kellerbier and Lambiek - not the only parallel: the oak cask adds a wild woody tartness to the unfiltered barley proteins, that closes the gap to Zoigl and even young, cheesy lambiek - still it does not taste "off": the orange marmelade and lemon jelly underneath is fresh and zesty on the palate, if quick in its finish. A creamy, easy UK "bitter" underneath that I could drink all night next time I make this pub my destination...

Cask hand-pull at Ye Olde Swiss Cottage. It pours clear brown with a sturdy off - white head. The aroma is quite soft, sweet, toffee, fudge, butterscotch and bread. The taste is malt - driven, brown bread, toasty grain, cereal, toffee, touch of butterscotch and wood with a faintly dry finish. Light - medium body and fine carbonation. Drinks easy for sure, but there isn’t much depth to it.

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.

Fra håndpumpe på The Champion (Wells Street, London): vakker dyprødlig kobber med tett skum som holder følge til siste dråpe. Meget cremet og bløt munnfølelse med balansert og myk bitterhet fra første til siste slurk. En klassisk, velkomponert bitter med stor smaksrikdom og eksepsjonell drikkbarhet. Litt maltsødme mot slutten gir en perfekt avrunding.

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

Cask Pint at The Princess Louise, Holborn, London in Sept 2010 - Amber. Good Condition. Fruity; citrus orange. Malty; toasty malts, toffee. Hoppy; some grassy hops. Good fruit/malt/hop balance. Sweet fruity malty throughout. Very drinkable. Very sessionable. (2010-09)

UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 Tap @ White Horse, London. Pours red with creamy white head. Aroma is malts, yeast, some grass, light oil. Taste is oily, fruity, some yeast, bread, apple, pie, some vanilla. Nice and fresh beer!
