Godfather50 (53) - SCOTLAND - JUL 26, 2014
Pools with a light cream head to a dark tan body. This is a rich malty smooth beer but the hopping is superb. Challanger, Fuggles and Cascade a solid trio that lift the beer superbly. A nice beer for a cold day. Will be going back to this one!

Toffee coloured with thinnish white head. Aromas of hops. Taste quite bitter. Well-balanced palate. Definitely one of the better Scottish premium bitters.
