Captain Cook Black Porter
Cask. Aroma puzzled me since the pub was awash with fried fish smells but lurking below the batter was coffee and chocolate and berry. Pours mahogany with tan top and good lacing. Fortunately the taste was unaffected by the fishy environment and the roasted malts and fruity notes came through pleasantly. Palate was medium with some excess carbonation but overall a porter to return to.

Captain Cook IPA
Cask @ Dirty Dick’s, Halifax. Lightly hazed golden ale with a creamy head. It’s crisp and arguably sessionable for its strength as there’s a mild citrus fruitiness here, with a smoothness when travelling down the palate.

Decent clear auburn, soft ringed head. Soft soapy malt nose. Rustic sweetness, nice clean hop bitterness. Soapy sweet tang. Fairly sad copper tinge to the finish, sweet and resonating for the ABV.

Medium beige head. Clear brown body. Earthy caramelly aroma with sugary notes. Dry-sweet earthy roasty taste with spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dryish grainy caramelly aftertaste with spicy notes. It’s ok, but the flavours are kind of harsh, and there isn’t enough of them. (0.5l bottle, from Clarkes, Whitby.)

Gorgeous dark copper hue, thin off white head, excellent clarity. Nose is toffee and biscuit, not much hop aromatics. Lovely deep malty and biscuity flavour, with some raisins developing in the latter stages. Long and smooth finish, with restrained bitterness featuring. Very nice bitter, like an Abbott Ale but with a little more bitterness.

The description of this beer from the brewery does not really do this beer justice, this is certainly a well hopped ale with a slightly cloudy pale golden colour. A well hopped beer which has a subtle bitterness to it’s flavour and makes for a very refreshing beer ideal for those summer barbecues.

Overall there is no strong aroma and it at first seems like a weak beer, however after the first mouthful the strength seems to be magnified by the hoppy bitterness. This mid brown bitter is a classic session bitter. There is only a small head which fades quickly, at first there is a strong malty taste which becomes bitter over time.

There was a clear caramel and hoppiness to this beer. It is a smooth bitter which turns more bitter as it stands, on pouring there is a rich creamy head which remains until finished. The roasted grains make for a pleasant ale, definitely for the dark beer lover. It’s a good session beer, not overly strong but full of flavour!

This is a crystal clear, 4%, oak brown beer, with a caramel aroma and a smooth hoppy, bitter taste, becoming more bitter with a flavour of roasted grains. It is a pleasant ale, perfect for those who like a darker beer. On pouring there is only a very small cream head which fades quickly but continues to be lively on the tongue. A good take on an Irish Ale.

[cask at the Old Black Bull, Preston] Golden amber pour, with a very nice white head. Aromas of soft, grassy hop and biscuity malt. Similar flavours, although there’s plenty of caramel, the finish is pretty floral. Decent enough [05102012]
