BeerCast_Rich (1906) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 2, 2011
[cask at the Old Mill, Pitlochry] Golden pour with a thin bubbly white head. Faint bitter hoppy aromas, with a taste similar to Deuchars, albeit a touch more lemony fruit. Very drinkable, cask lagers are very different to other forms of dispense – on a blind tasting I’d swear this was a golden ale. Sessionable [01052011]
