UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 Cask in the Kings Head W2. A deep reddish coloured ale with a thin white head. A very pleasant wintry ale, lots of red and dark fruit, a spicy hop finish, well balanced with sweet malt and bitterness. Very enjoyable.

500ml bottle from Dick Whittington, Gloucester. Smooth, malty bitterness that caresses the palette before a peppery dose of hops finishes you off.
