Theakston XB..... what can I say.
Whenever I cast my eyes over a parade of hand pumps and see the crimson X and ruddy B standing boldly on the cerulean background I feel like a child waking on easter sunday and finding a room full of chocolate.
This ale is so smooth it could be describes as liquid silk.
this chestnut beauty has a mild malt flavour that combined with its delectable smoothness unfortunately lends itself to all day binges.
This ale is guaranteed to make one sanguin

Cask at Theakston Brewery, Masham, September 2013. Light gold, clear. Sweet, hops, wine and a little candy aroma, mildly bitter taste, nutty sensation on the tongue and a little wine-like sourness. Light-to-medium body, delicate bitter finish.

Good standard bitter with a light malty finish, not my favourite session bitter as it’s not that memorable

Soft bready malt, low carbonation, some caramel and malt. Not too much hop character but a decent enough session beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Meglio della versione in bottiglia. Color rosso rubino si fa bere facilmente e ha delle note leggermente maltate che risultano piacevoli.
