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

Cream head on a brown body. Some sort of interesting malt aroma coming off there but in general this just seems to be a ramped up Theakston Best Bitter.

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