Cask conditioned handpump Saracens Head Daventry . A light amber coloured beer with a whitish lasting head and lace. A lovely citric aroma with oranges and lemons. Good bitter and citrus fruity tastes. A nice full body with good length. Good beer.

leaparsons (10710) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2010
Cask, Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Golden with a small head. Aromas are toffee and stewed pear with some chocolate. Bready yeast with citrus, hay and hints of fudge. Flavours are sweet chocolate and toffee with dry biscuit malts. Quite fruity with raisins and sweetened grapefruit. Very peppery with a nice sparkle on the palate. Dry on the finish with grassy hops.

SilkTork (5807) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 13, 2010
JDW Spring Fest - Rochester. Hoppy best bitter with dry ginger cake cake. Nice enough, but a fairly standard English Bitter. Even though decently done, this has been done hundreds of times. You’ve had it before.

JohnRMurdoch (5007) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 3, 2010
Cask @ Crystal Palace. Golden brown colour. Slightly flat and watery. A bog standard bitter. Only outstanding thing about it was the pump clip artwork which shows a flying V guitar.

Cask gravity at the Oddington Arms, Oddington, Oxon 02-06-07. Pours standard brown colour, malt on nose taste had the briefest of fruity malts that soon diminished to reveal a very malty brew with a pleasant bitterness. Quite a nice beer.
