Cask @ St. Urho’s Pub
Aroma has hay, some minerals and toffee. Flavour is a bit odd with grass, hay, some minerals, herbal notes and orange. Some bun dough notes at the end of the glass. Weird, a golden ale with herbs. Not my thing, harsh indeed like mjs said.

Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were malts, toffee, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste hadd toffee, grass and bitterness. The beer hadn’t probably reached its best spot yet because it tasted a little bit harsh. Good clean English beer.
