JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 30, 2007
Cask at the Coach and Horses. Pale golden beer topped by a light fine-laced head. Very light spicy/fruity aroma. Smells like Challengers to me. Lightly earthy with a very fine spicy quality. Good balance, moderate bitterness. A hint of astringency, but is quite nice. A hint of wheat and some soft orange marmalade as well.
