maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump The Pub Leicester. An amber coloured beer with white bubbles for a head. Insanely hoppy aroma for a British beer. A strong chinooky nose with follows through to the flavour. Sweetish malts give a lovely backbone balance. A good long finish with a touch of caramel late on. Really really tasty.

Cask @ Oaka. The pour’s a deep ruby amber color with a tiny off-white head. The nose is pine resin, strawberry, some forest fruits. Light summery pacific vibes. The taste is sticky sweet caramel and toffee. Pine cone. Hints of citrus. More robust strawberry and summery fruits salad. Slightly syrupy. Medium body, fine carbonation. Overall, quite good.
