Hippoman (646) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2016
Cask by gravity at The Station House, Durham, £3.40/pint. Crystal clear amber beer with a small, loose, white head. The nose is sweet and full of rich, ripe tropical fruit tones and maybe a little toffee too. The taste has more of the same with some bready maltiness combining nicely with juicy, fruity hop. Nice beer.
