Cask-conditioned at the Commercial Rooms (JDW), Bristol, October 2013. I think I got a bad pint here. The caramel sweetness was heading in the direction of buttery, and the spiciness was muted. Not good. Lowenbrau (4802) - Asturias, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2013
Cask @The Jerusalem Tavern, London. Malty, subtle roasty aromas. Pours dark copper, almost no head. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste is caramel, toffee, buttery, malty. Smooth and enjoyable.

Lightly roasted with floral notes. Flavours are sweet Weetabix with bitter lemon and spritzy, peppery notes. Red berries with earthy notes and a dry, pithy finish.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Copper with off white head. Full, malty beer, reasonably smooth, some roastiness and a little fruitiness. Slightly bitter with a light coffee note. Nothing special but ok. wheresthepath (2424) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Cask at the Square Bottle (JDW), Chester. Brown with a thick cream head. Rich toffee, some lemon and some crackly autumn leaves. Earthy bitterness to finish. A traditional, but indulgent-feeling English best bitter. One of the best I’ve had from this brewery. jjsint (3604) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2013
Cask at the Bankers Draft, Bedford. Translucent brown. Takes a while to clear. Aroma is big on malt: chocolate, firewood, a bit musty. The taste is almost like a sweet stout, sweetness lingers throughout with bitter edges. For a brewery that usually do things by the book, this was a bit of a surprise.
