Clear mahogany brown colour. It has a dry taste with a bit of wood. Good example of a traditional cask bitter.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
(Cask): Dark amber in colour with a small, creamy, off white head. Roasted malt aroma with small hints of caramel and fruit. Malty taste with some hops and fruit coming through, moderate bitterness and smooth on the palate.

Bottle at home. Much better on Handpull. Slight hoppy aroma and after that quite a standard bitter.
