nuplastikk (4332) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 30, 2011
Hand pump at Wynkoop. Amber-brown, looks filtered. Big creamy head. Room/cellar temperature, low carbonation, pretty true to the UK style. Quite mellow, toasty, with some fruity ale yeast tones. Refreshingly true to style, but still rather unexceptional.
