Cask handpull at Muggletons, JDW, Copper colour, again poor condition. Bit of everything, some hop, some sweetness from malt, a little hop sting on finish. Poor condition. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2009
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker St ’Sporks. Darkish gold, very clean and with a decent white head. Lots of bread with some decent fruity notes. Pleasant earthy malt followed by a hint of bitterness in the finish. Straight forward but very well balanced and enjoyable. bobinlondon (1297) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2009
