R4N5H (369) - SINGAPORE - AUG 29, 2015
Draught pint (cask) at The Galvinisers Union, Bromley-By-Bow on 18-Aug-2015. Clear copper colour with a small white head. Medium body with no carbonation. Aroma of dark fruit, malt and light caramel. Flavour matches aroma, slightly creamy - low carbonation leaves this a little short. Light subtle flavour, bittersweet finish and easy to drink.
