Bree Louise. Cask. Almost clear amber beer, residual pale tan head. Tangy semi sweet fruits, very light touch of candy fruits. Little cherry. Light finish, quite sweet and tangy. A little weird but drinkable.

Cask (Three Horseshoes, Marlow)
Sweet fruity aroma, rich and uplifting. Looks like a classic dark bitter, with a small tight head. A super full fruity body - very rich roasty taste. Finish is rich and again packed with roasty malts. Late finish lets the hops shine a bit more - they’re very fruity. Classic bitter.
