HopRedHead (341) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2013
Tap at some Welsh pub. Pours clear golden orange with a 3cm of creamy head and heavy lacing. Looks like a pale Guinness. Smells like water and shit malts. Taste is so watery, just a leathery yeast and light malt. Bitter, no carbonation and watery taste. I don't know if they're taking the piss.

I like it. Always have. Dave used to drink this so when we went for a pint I’d often have one. His daughter was called Dave as well.

Can be fantastic, rarely is. A very difficult pint for a pub to pull off, very few people know how to serve it. A sulphrous brown Burton bitter, yeasty/eggy nose, astringent malty taste and finish.
