’Country’ #86. Hand pulled at the Bear and Billet, Chester. Dark amber with a small head and a malty, watery taste. Aroma grassy. Finish is too short, the bitterness fleeting, and it’s been served too cold which doesn’t help.

Fairly standard bitter, it’s nice but doesn’t stand out at all, would be good on a session however
