Cask. Dark copper in colour. Some hop floral character. Toffee malt taste, almost bitter, like burnt toffee or liquorice. Quite thin on the palate, but this makes it highly sessionable.

Aroma is nice but doesn’t match the low flavor. Scent has hops and cotton. Flavor is missing the hops and has more bitter at the end. Tap in London
