Cask at Beefeater in Portsmouth - too light of a beer for my tastes, but has good roasted complexity

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive light brown foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear brown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a roasted malty touch . This beer smells malty.

Sjohnh (930) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2014
On tap at the Shakespeare, Coventry. I prefer this from a bottle, maybe needed to be warmer. Reddish, little aroma, taste OK with plums and caramel but not enough of it.

Cask @ Oxford Beer Festival, UK Backlog 23 Oct 2004
At 5%. Decent but not more. A bit harsh. Tried it many times through the years, but its not my cup of...pint.
