maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
Cask Conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A mid brown coloured beer with a whitish lasting head and lacing. A boring beer which is too sweet and yeasty. Not much aroma and the sweet fruit is a bit sickly to be honest.
