RichardGretton (4577) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Bottle. Golden beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is gently hopped with s bitter style of beer toffeeness. The flavour is also that bitter beer toffeeness with yeasty bitterness. Overall an average golden ale, but more like a bitter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
