Cask (Salisbury Arms, Cambridge). Clear dark yellow color. Medium size, off-white head, stays. Grainy, minerals, faint herbal hops in aroma. So watery and bland. Some grains and bit of chalk and that's it. Thirst quencher it is. Maybe? So not bad. Just boring.

Davros IX (695) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2017
Pint at The Old Ship in Chiswick. A good looking, light coloured bitter. The flavour was that of a basic bitter, biscuity malts and some bittering hops. It was well kept and pleasurable to drink, but basic and not one to get me dancing on the tables.

sdmmb (1858) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2017
Drunk on draught at the anchor and hope in Southwark. Enjoyable, drinkable ale.
