"A real ale with a hint of continental looks, taste and aroma. We’ve called it Quartz Extra Blonde because of its light colour and finish."

Cask Conditioned Handpump Old Contemptibles Birmingham. A yellow gold coloured beer with a big white sparkledand agitated head and lacing. An interesting beer. Sweet with bready malts and husky oats throughout. A bit of late orange and then some definite granulated sugar. Characterful and actually quite cool.
