chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2008
Keg at the Anchor Tap, RB Christmas pub crawl 2004. This beer must’ve made such an impression on me that I neglected to enter my notes at the time (and I was quite punctual with my ratings back then). Copper colour. Thick, creamy head. Thought I caught a fleeting glimpse of malt in the aroma but it didn’t last. Lacking in flavour. Easy drinking and inoffensive, clean but entirely bland. Better than the Sovereign.

Draft at Duke of Argyll. Soho, London. Light copper pour. Ligh aroma of caramel malts. Very drinkable but light flavor of caramel/sweet malts. Decent
