Bottle from B&M Stockton. Amber beer with white head. Quite a pleasant malty biscuit taste. A nice drinkable drop, but no spectacular by any stretch.

StueyD (1120) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2013
A dark, amber brown beer with a weak white head. A light malty aroma, nutty, woody and a touch grassy. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is dry, biscuity malt, bitter nuttiness followed by a hint of hoppy citrus fruit. The finish is well balanced between the hops and the malt.
