ForlornHope (23) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 26, 2014
Poured nicely with head diminishing to small foam collar. Burnt sugar aroma which loses it’s appeal as the beer is drunk. Reddish-brown in appearance. Bitterish finish which with the sugary aroma conflicts. An OK beer, but I recall this beer being better a couple of years ago.
