Cask (Angleterre, Helsinki)
Sweet mashy malts, slightly perfumey. Dull and watery. Just about adequate bitter, but so boring. Twiggy finish, and a bit mushroomy. Aimed for people who prefer something simply because of the country they were born in, not because of its merits.

The rugby praising beer from the Chiswick brewer. This is golden without a head. Easily a session ale for the duration of the match with a light inoffensive character, but no real specifics.
