Cask (backlog). Rubyish amber colour with a mediumsized white creamy head. Aroma is sweet malts along iwth some mild herbal and floral notes to it. Flavour is sweet malts, mild crisp bready notes, some nutty notes as well as some slight wooden and floral bitterness in the finish. OK, but nothing that special.

Hippoman (645) - Durham, ENGLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Cask at The John Duck, Durham, £2.50/pint. Pours deep ruby brown with a thin, smooth, cream-coloured head that laces the glass well. The aroma is largely pleasant with sweet, bready malts, dark fruit and maybe a little apple giving some sharpness detectable. The taste opens clean and bitter but there’s a definite bread and caramel sweetness underneath. It gets sweeter and fruitier as the pint goes on. Mediocre bitter.
