Casl at Prince of Wales, Farnborough. 09/09/16. Little aroma to speak off. Hint of malt. Dark chestnut, almost black. Weak head, just circles inside of glass. Sweet but not overly so. Medium bodied, oily mouthfeel. Slightly malty. However it had a really odd finish - leaves a salty taste in the mouth. Average at best.

Bottle from the Tring Brewery.
Poured a dark ruby with a medium tan head. Aroma of dark malts, caramel, some nutty overtones. More malts and caramel in the flavour with some brown sugar. Turns a little too bitter at the end, which I didn’t think worked.
