Cask conditioned handpump Mr Foleys Leeds. This sample resembled chocolate milshake with a whitish head and lace. I asked the bar person if it was unfined. He wasn’t sure but then checked in the cellar and it transpired someone had knocked the cask. Tasted fine though. a good amber type hoppy beer. Some chocolatey malty flavours too. Nice sweeter fruity hops. A well balanced beer.
