Grumbo (727) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
Cask handpump at The Queens Head, Chelmsford. A beer named after a great band, and a great album, though the beer doesn’t quite deliver the maximized net pleasure a hedonist strives to achieve! It’s a light, summery golden ale, fruity and low in carbonation. Not bad overall.
