wimpyjoe (4424) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Cask @ West Riding Rooms, Dewsbury. Slightly hazed reddish-brown, but more red with a thick frothy head. With its carbonation it feels a little lager like, although it’s slightly more ’ale’ in its texture. Its chocolate is mostly evident in its aroma, although it’s there in small quantities in its taste.
