Cask, gravity at Cheltenham Town hall, Cheltenham, Glos weekend of Cheltenham Folk Festival Sat 11th Feb 2012 Pours golden in colour. This was a little smokey on the nose and in the mouth also got a little cheesiness, some spiciness and then a dab of dusty hops and a little fruit. This was absolutely not what I expected but it was actually ok for the weirdness. A6 A4 T6 P3 Ov13 3.2
