Cask at the Hogshead Wolves. Almost house beer this. Broughs is a top brewery and this is a good Black Country style creamy beer.deep golden with a good creamy white head, sweet dry finish and very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gravity poured half-pint at The Birmingham CAMRA Beer Festival on 30 Oct 2013.
Light golden brew with a full, but thinning white crown.
Slightly more maltiness in the aroma and taste than there were hop notes: mild caramel biscuit feel overall. Delicate rather than robust, the flavours don’t rush at you, they just trickle out slowly, which is a shame because I drank this fairly swiftly and maybe missed something.
OK and easy to drink.
