Grumbo (1506) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2016
Cask handpulled at The Bull in Devonshire Row, London. Pours golden with an initially large creamy white head, soon dissipating. Aroma is floral, hoppy, with touch of caramel and fruit. Initially bitterness much heavier than sweetness but the two combine nicely as pint was consumed. Body is quite light, texture sticky, carbonation average. Finish is lasting bittersweet and fruity. Quite decent light bitter.

It is 3.8° and it tastes like a mix between fruit juice and some water used for cleaning dishes. Please, do not keep selling it as a Beer, thanks.
