jamesie1857 (1461) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2013
On cask at Stalybridge Buffet Bar October 20, 2013 - Deep reddy brown body, good white top, nice roasted malt nose with hints of coffee. A bit more bitterness than a run-of-the-mill mild, which probably was more tuned to my frequency, nice coffee finish to it too. A decent one this.
