Cask Conditioned at The Golden Lion, York. Amber beer with no head. I reckon this one was out of condition as Highgate beers have been so much better lately. It was a sluggish mid malted beer with a licorice note. A little salt and vinegar thrown in. The Painted Lady in this case as all you Lepidopterists will know is a Butterfly, well this one was past its best and somewhat jaded.
