UPDATED: OCT 10, 2017 Pretty boring and tasteless pint bought at the Brown Cow, Lancaster. Can’t blame the Publican - hard to make a silk purse from a sow’s ear

Bottle. Posted under cask as their isn’t a bottle version listed. Bronze and clear with a small head. Slightly nutty bitterness but no real distinctive flavours apart from this. Also lacks body.Is there any point in this type of beer, especially in a bottle.

Butelka 500ml. Miedziana barwa. Piana biala mala. Aromat ciastek chmielu i slodu. W smaku nie jest az tak gorzkie. Wodniste. Ciastka orzechy owoce lekki chmiel...nic wielkiego

Cask at Plumbers Arms, Chester. Pours copper with an off white head. Sweet fruit, berry and a light bitter finish. Nice sweet bitter. In excellent nick.

Pint from cask at Britons Protection in Manchester 05.05.15. Dark golden. Off-white head and lacing. Aroma of grains, cereals and biscuits. Similar taste, perhaps with a hint of yeast.

Tried a the Tempest Coleby. To be honest a dull and rather average bitter. Amber colour. Aroma malts. Slightly sweet. What more to say...

Tap, amber pour, white head, nose is apple, taste is apple, citrus, some caramel.

Cask at Ye Cracke, Liverpool. Golden brown, clear with a huge head. Sulphur, malt and maple syrup aroma. Unexciting and simple but enticing nonetheless. A sweet biscuity taste throughout, buffeted by bitter-sour sulphur. Weak oily mouthfeel but the slight carbonation carries it through. Basic, old-fashioned and Northern as fuck. This is a beer that has stood the test of time.

dynamiteninja (1888) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2014
Cask at the Bishop Blaize, Richmond. Amber body. White head. Spice, wood, dust, green apple, caramel. Bittersweet and tangy.

allmyvinyl (10995) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 25, 2014
Call at the philharmonic, Liverpool. Pours clear copper, no head. Aromas of caramel and not much else. Taste is sweet and a bit chewy. Sticky finish. Dull.
