McNeillR (2297) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2016
Fairly staunch clear golden very thin ringed head producing some thinly spotted lacing. Nose is grassy dishcloth lemon. Initial taste is a keen but acrid citrus, brassy bitterness. Thin enough mouthfeel. Finishes awkwardly bitter and lingers minerally and coppery. Wouldnt say it was in great nick in fairness.

Cask, The Crown, Belfast
