Gary (1305) - (originally London),, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2013
(cask @ The Crossways Inn West Huntspill. Somerset) Pale ass pale and I mean pale from a headless ale...very easy to drink. tHe kind of beer lager fans would like if they were trying cask ale without any experience . Nicely dry and lightly sweet , resembles a Pils on look=s too.
