Ye Olde Bull Ring Tavern, Ludlow. Cask. Clear pale gold beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Nice condition. Light malts, softish and with a little creamy sweetness. Light esters are well integrated. Modest citric hops on the back end, Light finish. It’s all very smooth and civilised and pretty drinkable!
