Cask Conditioned Handpump Coach & Horses Wellingborough. A golden beer with a white head and lacing. The aroma has a bit of fruit with some balanced bitterness in the mouth. Too safe and drinkable for its own good.

Holmen1 (2377) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
0,5 flaske delt med Steve og håndimportør Ovesen: klar, gylden med hvitt filmskum. Deilig aroma av mandaring og aprikos. Forfriskende, lett sommerøl med middel munnfylde - lett å helle over drøvelen.
