A Mes rate: cask at The Hobgoblin in Baker Street.Clean pale amber with a faint off white head. A typically bland offering from Marstons. Reasonable fruity malt, slight soap and a faint peaty note in the finish. 175 years is a long time. I would have thought it warranted a better celebration than this.
