RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2012
Cask Lloyds Carlisle. Lovely dusty gold colour. Floral aroma with a hint of sweetness. Soft and smooth on the tongue with a very satisfying finish, where some bitterness just creeps in at the end. Blackcurrant notes very late on, unusually. Very enjoyable.
