weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
Cask at the Vale Inn, Bollington. Iíve liked everything Iíve had from these guys so far but this just didnít excite me at all. Brown amber colour with thin to medium off white brown head. Light body, bit of fruit some malt and hops, bit of cleaning fluid but not unpleasant. Kinf od like a Grandmaís talcum powder.
