Cask at the Euston tap. Dark brown on colour with a thin light tan head. Small aroma, slight tart fruits and nutty malt. Flavour is medium toast malts, tart berries and a weird spicy veg flavour that I can’t put my finger on. Hints of clean roast lingers. Good condition slightly strange put pretty drinkable.
