Cask at the haymarket. Pours clear amber, thick white head. Aromas are light vinegar, toffee. Taste has some yeasty funk. Maybe not well kept, but I can honestly say I preferred this in the bottle.

BaroneBirra (425) - Gorizia, ITALY - MAY 8, 2014
Draft with hand pump at Bunker Trieste. Pours pale copper with one inch of creamy head. Faint hoppy aroma. Mild taste, just some floral hops and light caramelized malts. Cream and moderate bitterness in the final. Very smooth, almost oily texture.

Appearance- amber, very clear, half finger persisting foamy white head which lasts pretty much throughout. Aroma- toffee and caramel, nutty, raisiny. Taste- smooth and malty, little bit creamy, medium mouthfeel, toffee hints, roast chestnut, caramel, slight fruit, some malt. Fruitcake and chewy toffee in the finish. Very nice.

Typique anglaise de pub. Légère et minérale, amertume modérée, arômes de malts en fin de dégustation. Très bonne dans sa catégorie.
