Cask, Rigbys, Liverpool. Darkish amber looks with a small lingering white head and some trace of lace. Subdued sweetish pear drop/citrus notes in the nose. Some fruitiness mingled with biscuity malts in the flavour, and some fairly low key bitterness. Somewhat bland and watery, but tolerable enough.
