Pint at Wetherspoons in Sunderland. Faintly hazy chestnut colour, thin white head, toffee aroma. Gentle carbonation, sweet on the tongue with a flavour of Wham! bar. Bitterness in the finish. Pleasantly drinkable.

Light to medium bodied with fine carbonation. Sugary sweet finish with some faintly leafy and earthy bitterness and more fruits. Interesting, and not bad.
