Cask (handpump) at the Roebuck Inn (JD Wetherspoon), Nottingham on 13 July 2012. Amber / gold colour with lasting fluffy white head. Wouldn’t have really said there was much red in the colour. Excellent lively condition. Some biscuity malts in the aroma. Very lemony on the palate. Clean, firm mouthfeel with a persistent dry, moderately bitter aftertaste. Extremely drinkable.
