Tasting at our ever gracious host - Bruces pad. Lightly hazy amber beer, residual pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, decent fine carbonation. Medium malt, touch of dried fruits. Bare whisper of bitterness. Finishes smooth and semi dry. About as standard as a beer can get and still maintain a modicum of decency.
