COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
"Brewed to a recipe combining pale and crystal malts with choicest traditional ale hop varieties. The beer has a long, deep, bitter-sweet finish with fruit and hop notes, a strong ale which is distinctively hoppy."
Michael Jackson 500 Classic Brews.

It pours an amber colour, with medium carbonation and a small head. Notes of coffee in the aroma and a little bitter in the end. Rather drinkable though.

Cask @ William Morgan, Prestatyn [090615]
Amber, clear, thin dense white head
Aroma of soft caramel, dab of sweet toffee
Taste of soft caramel, light soft twiggy hops, hint of toffee, soft bitter grain, clean, simple, not awful but muted flavour
Palate - Medium light body, quite smooth, malts a bit creamy. Finish of light bitter twiggy hops, soft toffee.
Overall - Simple fare, as expected tbh. OK drinking. Plain session stuff.
