Cask conditioned - handpump - Victoria Inn, Rugby. A golden coloured beer with a whitish head. Despite the name, this is crystal clear - no haze at all. Immediately the chilli heat is noticeable in the nose. Full on capsaicinoids. In the mouth it grabs the back of the throat and the front of the tongue. But I like chilli, and this ain’t no Cave Creek. Instead it’s a warming heat. Dare I say it even has aphrodisiac qualities. Not a beer to get pissed on, just a beer to sip, savour and ultimately enjoy.
